my reality

Cameroonian photographer Mario Epanya did what should have been done years ago. In hopes of getting Vogue publisher Conde Nast to see the potential in Vogue Africa as a competitor in the world of fashion magazines, he created fictional covers for his dream and the dream of many black fashion lovers. Although Vogue Italia has featured beautiful black models and fashion in their "all black" issue, I think theres still a need for a magazine catered towards paying homage to black beauty. The covers Epanya shot were gorgeous and although they can't be found on the shelves of your local newsstand, the art speaks just as loud as any other Vogue cover.
