Should I be grateful for being in Vogue?
As the title suggests, Vogue recently created a list of 29 Black jewellers in the industry that people could support buy purchasing their products.
This is the second time I have been featured in Vogue. I suppose I should be happy about that accolade, however it's bitter sweet.
I wanted to be acknowledged for my craft and talent. If I had been featured in Vogue before George Floyd's death sparked worldwide outrage and made people more aware of racism black people experience.
Then I would have felt differently. Excitement for being acknowledged for my craft and talent.
I'm waiting to see if there will be a active change in publication's like Vogue to showcase black talent within there magazine and not just online content.
Only time will tell and a change in what I see?
