British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman Doesn’t See A Problem With Catering To White Consumers

“There have always been black players on the scene — at the moment look at the stylist Edward Enninful, make-up artist Pat McGrath and [models] Jourdan Dunn, Liya Kebede and Joan Smalls, who are at the top of the tree … In a society where the mass of the consumers are white and where, on the whole, mainstream ideas sell, it’s unlikely there will be a huge rise in the number of leading black models. If you look at the characters that sell magazines such as [British mags] Grazia and Heat, it is Jennifer Aniston, Cheryl Cole and Catherine Middleton.”

British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, who says she doesn’t believe there’s any institutional racism in fashion. Well, let’s just say it takes some institutional racism to know some institutional racism. Well, as long as white consumers are happy. (Sarcasm.) [NY Mag]
