Viewed as a “poetic reprieve from the bitch that is reality,” Moroccan photographer Mehdi Sefrioui‘s shoot “Infro” is inspired by ‘Handbag Racism’ – a term used to describe the fashion industry’s preference for white models.
Moved by Moncler’s S/S’14 show, which used an all black cast of models to present its collection in Paris this past February, Sefrioui shot a gathering of great models against pretty, pink Parisian fauna, addressing the issue of runway diversity in fashion.
Styled by Laetitia Kandolo, the models – Gauderic Vilmaure, Josué Comoe, Julio Goba, Maël Caloc and Joseph Gio Degbadjo – wore designs by Issey Miyake, Ben Sherman and Diesel, amongst others, and were seen looking stylish throughout this sartorial statement against racism.
