Jourdan Dunn is tired of dealing with discrimination in the fashion world so she’s speaking out. The supermodel — who’s been turned away from casting calls because they “didn’t want any more black girls” and experienced white make-up artists who refused to do her make-up — opens up about the issue that is so dear to her heart in the latest issue of Miss Vogue.
“I don’t know why people applaud designers for having just one ethnic model. It’s not like only one type of woman loves fashion,” the 23-year-old cover star says. “I find it weird when [model] agents say, ‘You’re the only black girl booked for the show. Isn’t it great?’ Why is it great?”
The British bombshell is also an open supporter of Iman and Naomi Campbell’s campaign for racial diversity on the runway. “I want to talk about what goes on. A lot of people are scared to speak up,” she explains.
Thankfully, Dunn’s concerns are not falling on deaf’s ears. Her story is being addressed by the Diversity Coalition’s campaign to solve fashion’s diversity problem.
Hold on, change is coming!
