Vogue Italy July 2008 Black Issue

It’s not everyday you come across a fashion spread of 100 plus pages in a single magazine issue.
Fashion goes beyond white. Vogue Italy decided to show the world how a black issue is made and with whom. Except the cover-girls (Liya Kebede, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell) you can also find from Alek Wek to Tyra Banks, all pictured in a color statement spread that has taken the world by storm.

Not trying to set a particular trend, but hoping to make people react to a mere physical reality, Vogue Italy Black Issue could, however, kick start a colored catwalk for the next fashions shows. (there are some of Naomi’s pictures from this Vogue’s issue after the cover picture)
