 “Aamito Lagum, Achok Majak, Ajak Deng, Ajuma Nasenyana, Alek Wek, Angok Mayen, Grace Bol, Mari Agory and Nykhor Paul. You never see them at Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, etc.. Like Nykhor Paul said “…people need to expand their idea of what black models can do. Black beauty can be Chanel, black beauty can be Dior.” This needs to change. Black models with darker skin should/also deserve to be casted by bigger names/brands.”   - @amen69fashion

“None of them have any Vogue covers and are rarely used on any of the big campaigns. They don’t even book them for covers for smaller fashion mags or use them in editorials they way they use their lighter counterparts” - @fuckrashida
