I was thrilled to be able to pick up the first issue of new editor-in-chef, Edward Enninful’s British Vogue, featuring cover model, Adwoa Aboah.
Both people I admire so much. Edward for his services to diversity in fashion, which won him an OBE. Adwoa for not only being a great model, but having a voice and using it to help others. Both things I strive to do myself.
The cover is beautiful. It almost looks like a vintage Vogue but is still fresh and modern. British but the styling ethnically inspired with bright pink and purple prints and a silk turban.
This issue is Edward Enninful’s tribute to Great Britain, featuring amazing British talent and people who represent today’s diverse Britain. Naomi Campbell, Skepta and Cara Delevingne were the people that personally caught my attention!
Jourdan Dunn talks British Sunday roasts, Londoners, Sadiq Khan and Naomi Campbell talk growing up south of the river thames hard work ethic, standing up against racists and Sadiq talks about spending his life fighting against discrimination and inequality, from being a lawyer to working in politics.
Sidenote: This is also a special issue to me because it features one of my nearest and dearest friends, the Anglo-Indian beauty, Saffron Vadher. Modelling is great because you get to meet people from all over the world but Saffron is the first other model I met from the same place as me. Naomi and Sadiq might be South Londoners, but North West is still representing too!
