Veteran model Stacey McKenzie models bold black and white looks, with pieces from Moschino, Alexander Wang, and more, for the latest issue of Georgie Magazine. McKenzie, who rose to fashion fame in the 90’s, spoke of how little the industry has changed, over the past 25 years, when it comes to black fashion models.
“When I started my career, it is true that there was only a handful of black models on the international scene in high fashion,” she says. “Transitioning into today, I do not see much of a change overall in the industry,” she carries on. “Because of my lighter skin complexion, freckles and natural blonde hair, there was no category that I fit into. It wasn’t until Jean Paul Gaultier booked me when I became a symbol of a new and very unique category, which ultimately led to my success.”
