Vogue Japan Spotlights 10 Models on 15 Key Fashion Trend Covers For September 2019

Vogue Japan kicks off the Fall 2019 fashion season, releasing a major parade of model covers styled by Anna Dello Russo. Photographers Luigi & Iango are behind the lens bringing 10 top models front and center. They include Adut Akech, Anok Yai, Fran Summers, Hikari Mori, Kris Grikaite, Primrose Archer, Rebecca Leigh Longendyke, Remington Williams, Signe Veiteberg and Ugbad.

On a side note, many of fashion’s most articulate voices — Naomi Campbell to name one — are watching this year of models of color on the march. Personally, I think we’re entering a period of continued ascendancy for models of color, who are being propelled forward in the culture from politics to Hollywood and beyond.

I’m one of the people who is counting, tracking, observing any sign of the fashion industry falling back into old bad habits (which is a nice way of describing past reality.) If Vogue Japan is an indication, this new, beautiful and inspiring reality is going strong into Fall 2019. Our foot is on the pedal, and we’re not letting up on the drive for women of color to finally bloom in all their glory. We want to kick that door wide open and bolt it to the wall, so that it never closes on them again. Ever. ~ Anne
