A Liberian-born black model based in Los Angeles Deddeh Howard is raising awareness on having lack of diversity in the modeling industry. Because of her Black Mirror photo series, it caught the eye of the audience. She then recreates some of the most iconic fashion ads, and replace Kendall Jenner for Calvin Klein, Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton, Candice Swanepoel for Victoria’s Secret and more.
“For this project I decided to re-shoot several of the inspiring and famous campaigns out there. And try to show what they could look like with a black model.”
“Why can’t the big brands not embrace our diversity more and give all of us visibility? With this Black Mirror project I hope to show the world that it is time for all of us being seen.”
