Round Two for L’Uomo Vogue
After the success of the first All-African L’Uomo Vogue (Men’s Italian Vogue), Franca Sozzani has been working feverishly on the next edition, which is to be released in May or June of this year. The idea is not show Africa in some unreal, all-too-glamorous light, but to show it in the most positive way.Our Director, Adiat Disu weighed in on NBC’s theGrio,com article, ” Africans in fashion speak on coming all-African issue of L’Uomo Vogue” written by Nana Brew-Hammond (follow her @nanaekua)
There is so much talent that comes from the continent that Vogue is the perfect magazine to showcase it all. Featured in the issue will be Nina Baksmaty, a young African designer who’s ready to show off her talent as seen through her label called KoshieO. Declares Baksmaty, “The Vogue reader looks to Vogue for the next fashion trend, the next designer, the next phase in fashion. The African [L'Uomo Vogue] edition… will therefore let the Vogue readers know the potential of African fashion.”
