Color is trending

Edward Enniful took on the mantle of editor-in-chief at British Vogue earlier in the year, making him the first black editor-in-chief of the esteemed fashion publication. That said; Enniful’s first cover for British Vogue has recently been released with its December issue with British supermodel Adwoa Aboah gracing the cover. Aboah is of Ghanian descent.

The December cover was photographed by Steven Meisel and reflects Enniful’s desire to diversify British Vogue by including more models of color and features that appeal to Britain’s growing diverse, global population. Adwoa Aboah was recently named the face of Marc Jacobs beauty, as well as fronting 2017 campaigns for Miu Miu, Dior, The Gap, H&M, and several others.

Bibhu and HSN

Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” has not only inspired a remake of the classic 1970s film which starred Maggie Smith, Peter Ustinov, and Bette Davis, but also a fashion capsule collection by Bibhu Mohapatra on.

Executives at HSN contacted Mohapatra about creating a capsule collection based on the film remake. “They came with a whole package and said. ‘This is your project, and we want you to do it,’ because they followed my work, explained Mohapatra in a WWD article. “They thought that, given the story and the time it’s set in, I would be a good person to come up with the capsule collection inspired by the movie and its characters. It’s beautifully cast and beautifully done. And the best part is [HSN] shared their entire research for the film and costume are art direction.”

The limited-edition collection is available now on HSN.
