Styled by British Vogue’s editor-in-chief Edward Enninful, the images illustrate how, “with a new generation of African models in the spotlight, fashion is at last embracing what it is to be truly global“, as Funmi Fetto puts it in the accompanying story. Nine talents pose in labels such as Schiaparelli, Loewe, Jil Sander, Versace, Alaïa, Raf Simons, Calzedonia and Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello.
