When British Vogue Magazine announced the collaboration with Her Royal Highness, Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle for the September issues, the world waited anxiously for the outcome of the intriguing decision.
Guest editor of the issues, Meghan Markle, worked closely with Ghanaian fashion stylist and editor-in-chief of the magazine Edward Enninful in selecting the cover stars. Each of the stars on the cover was asked their opinion on the change they want to see in the world, and how they can be part of this change.
Well-respected Nigerian writer and feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, was of the view that, for people to effect change, they must vote that change into reality.
South Sudanese model and former refugee, Adut Akech, wants people to know that refugees are normal people just like everyone else, the parents took that decision of change when they moved from Sudan to Kenya, and finally, to Australia, where she found her love for modelling.
Ghanaian-British supermodel and mental health campaigner, Adwoa Aboah is solely focused on creating a space where women will be more comfortable to talk about the things that are going on in their lives.
These celebrated African women were joined by twelve other women around the world who also shared their views on the topic which was chosen by the guest-editor, Meghan Markle. The issue arrives on newsstands on August 2, 2019.
