Writer and Senior Editor at Out Magazine, Mikelle dissects the brand of Vogue Magazine, why it’s taken 125 years to hire a black photographer, and what the CFDA is or isn’t doing to propel new talent.

“People like to say Virgil is the first black artistic director of Louis Vuitton Men, in the whole history of the brand. I’m like OK. Yes. but Louis Vuitton men has only had artistic directors since 2011. He is the 2nd artistic director of Louis Vuitton. Those numbers don’t mean anything unless you know what you’re talking about.”
