"Racial prejudice in the fashion industry has long persisted because of tokenism and lookism."
-N.Y Times
For the July '08 issue of Italian Vogue, Steven Meisel, one of the most influential photographers in fashion, has photographed only black models.

Lookism:

steven meisel is a genius. and i hate to admit it but its true. models with darker skin complexions are not easily booked.

yves saint laurent had a fashion show back in the 90s, which he called the black out fashion show because all the models he used were black.

also heatherette a couple years back had a fashion show with only black models. some designers are trying but unfortunately the reality is this (this is what a journalism teacher told me about the sad truth about the publishing world, top secret stuff):

"black is better than white
rich is better than poor
pretty is better than ugly
skinny is better than fat
and there's nothing better than a dead celebrity"

a famous quote from a prominent publisher who told his staff that's what makes a successful cover for a magazine.

super rude but realistic because it happens and we never catch it. but i'm breaking that mold.
