Brief Excerpt from cover story:

Together with Gucci we’re celebrating the beauty of diversity

 “The fashion industry has an ability to make the less visible, visible,” model Jourdana Phillips, one of five cover stars to front this issue, tells Bazaar. Alongside Lameka Fox, Grace Mahary, Ajak Deng and Nykhor Paul, Jourdana appears in April’s 22-page cover story in celebration of what has been described as fashion’s most diverse season, following the autumn/winter 2017 catwalk shows, which showcased a wider range of ethnicities, sizes, ages and gender profiles than ever before. 

The inspiration for the story is the sentiment of Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele, who told Bazaar after his A/W17 show, “If we are going to push the conversation forward then we have to look beyond simply talking about models on the runway, and focus instead on individuality and faces that show humanity.”
