When it comes to diversity, fashion is known to lag behind other industries. But when the fight for racial justice took center stage last year, things finally began to change in 2020 . Fortunately, this change has continued this year. At least as far as the front pages in 2021 are concerned. We'll definitely take it.
We saw a small spike in racial diversity on the covers of 2021 magazines. Although the increase is not quite as big compared to 2019 and 2020, the trend is still in the right direction. This year, too, there was more size and gender diversity on the front pages. Although the age representation took a nosedive. (The break-in has a logical reason, but more on that later.)
