Arlenis Sosa, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Sessilee Lopez shoot For i-D Magazine
For the biggest issue of the year i-D choose four women of color as their feature models for the special issue. The models are Arlenis Sosa, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn, and Sessilee Lopez. I am thrilled if you’ve been following these models twitters this won’t come as complete surprise to you as they could barely contain their excitement. Additionally, if you got your hands on the now famous Italian Vogue issue featuring all black models (that sadly featured mostly non-black models in the ad) these models will come as no surprise to you. I got all four covers after waking up at the crack of dawn and calling all the coffee shops in New York City on the day of the second delivery until I hit pay dirt.
I am excited to see them on the cover and I am hoping that this season fashion week in New York is more diverse then the last. I am still disappointed at Miss Sixty lack of diversity on their runway shows.
While you wait to get your cover take a look at the fabulous models in action.
