A Black Model Re-Created Some Of The World’s Top Campaigns As A Call For More Diversity
Deddeh Howard is a 27-year-old model, medical student and fashion blogger raised in Liberia but living in Los Angeles.
She collaborated with her photographer boyfriend Raffael Dickreuter to re-create some of the world’s biggest modelling campaigns – including ones by Dolce & Gabbana and Victoria’s Secret – as “a call for more diversity” in the industry, in a series called Black Mirror. She told BuzzFeed News: “I thought it was perfect because we are mirroring two images. When you [black women] look in the mirror you question: ‘This could be me, why is this not me?”
