Chanel Iman talks racism in Net-A-Porter’s ‘The Edit’


Model Chanel Iman covers the latest issue of Net-A-Porter’s The Edit. The 23-year-old Atlantan looked absolutely stunning in an array of fabulous frocks and skirts by elite fashion designers Jason Wu, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, Simone Rocha and Altuzarra.

In the pages of The Edit, Iman joins the likes of Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn and Iman to openly discuss racism within the fashion industry. Check out an excerpt below …

“It’s an issue that my industry is still working on. I think that everyone should be equal; it shouldn’t be about color. It’s unfortunate that there is still a lot of politics involved in both the acting and modeling worlds. I do think we’ve come a long way, but things could still be a lot more diverse on the runway and in films.”
