From Peasant Insults To Pet Tigers And $50,000 Dollar Liquor Tabs, The Luxury Kids On Instagram Show Off Mommy And Daddy’s Money

THE BLACK MIRROR: Deddeh Howard Puts The Spotlight On Fashion’s Diversity Problem

(SL) – As reported by USA Today, The Liberian-born model-blogger banded together with photographer Raffael Dickreuter to launch “Black Mirror,” a project that recreates high-profile ad campaigns by brands including Chanel, Calvin Klein, Guess, Gucci, David Yurman, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana to highlight the dearth of women of color represented in fashion and the media.

In an emailed statement to USA TODAY, Howard cites the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as the most recent example of underrepresentation, noting, “you could see the same pattern you can see at New York Fashion Week or any other famous fashion event: Black girls are almost invisible. There is the odd one here and there, but it always feels like an afterthought.”

Or, a performance of diversity as opposed to actual inclusion.
