Race & Diversity at Burberry

Unsurprisingly, these images sparked a broader conversation on race and the campaign was widely hailed as a positive step forward for ethnic diversity in fashion.

Following the pairing of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne for the My Burberry fragrance campaign in September, the British brand once again coupled an iconic supermodel with a new star for its Spring/Summer 2015 advertisements. In what was Naomi Campbell’s first Burberry shoot since 2001 and the fourth for 24-year old Jourdan Dunn, this is the first time the house has launched a campaign starring exclusively black models. Sporting the label’s classic trench and this season’s taffeta tiered frocks and colour-blocked bags, the British beauties were lensed, as usual, by Mario Testino.
