FASHION WEEK: Blindie Tracks Down Jourdan Dunn’s Latest Runway Looks

London native Jourdan Dunn (who appears on the latest cover of i-D Magazine) has many modeling accomplishments under her slim belt, including appearing on one of four Italian Vogue covers, being the first black model to walk the Prada runway in ten years, and closing the spring Rodarte show in New York on Tuesday. Of her signature runway walk that rivals her mentor Naomi Campbell's, the 19-year-old fashion star told Teen Vogue, "I practice a lot. My mum got me these hooker shoes and I walk around the house in them all day. I can walk in anything after those!" Here’s a timeline of Jourdan’s latest looks fresh off the most prestigious runways: Sat, Sept. 6 @ 5 p.m. | Alexander Wang Sun, Sept. 7 @ 11 a.m. | DKNY Sun, Sept. 7 @ 12 p.m. | C. Tagliapietra Mon, Sept. 8 @ 11 a.m. | Peter Som Mon, Sept. 8 @ 9 p.m. | Marc Jacobs Mon, Sept. 8 @ 10 a.m. | C. Herrera Tue, Sept. 9 @ 12 p.m. | Rodarte Wed, Sept. 10 @ 1 p.m. | de la Renta

With covers featuring Liya Kebede, Sessilee Lopez, Jourdan Dunn and Naomi Campbell, the extremely well-received black issue shoots down the assumption held within the publishing industry that black faces don't sell magazines. Blindie just hopes Italian Vogue's attempt at showcasing black talent in the fashion world isn't viewed as "a collectors' edition, a one-off, a novelty", as the editor of Let Them Eat Cake magazine Nijide Ugboma warns in an article for The Observer.

Black Is The New Italian

Italian Vogue painted their entire issue black: devoting their July issue to black models and issues showing up American Vogue who dared ask the question “Is Fashion Racist?” in their July issue, then dedicated a paltry spread to a mere three models—Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn and Arlenis Sosa. “Mine is not a magazine that can be accused of not using black girls,” editor Franca Sozzani, who has put Naomi Campbell, Liya Kebede and Alek Wek on her covers, told the New York Times. “Franca doesn’t realize what she’s done for people of color,” Naomi Campbell said. “It reminds me of Yves [Saint Laurent] using all the black models.”
