Young YBF Model Leomie Anderson Opens Up About Racism In The Fashion Industry

 

YBF chic Leomie Anderson has penned an open letter to the Sunday Times in the UK about what it feels like to be a black model in the fashion industry and the overt and passive racism she experiences.  Read the eye-opening letter inside.....

We've all heard fashion experts and industry insiders talk about racism in the industry whether its on the runways or in the magazines.  But now a true insider, 19-yr-old Leomie Anderson, is speaking about her own experience.  In an open letter published in the UK's Sunday Times, Leomie says that racism is very much a part of her everyday struggle, forcing minority models to work twice as hard as their white counterparts.

Leomie adds that until the fashion houses begin to embrace a wider range of "beauty" and cater to a more diverse demographic of fashion consumers, the issue will persist.  But Leomie also says that she knows things MUST change and she uses the racism factor as motivation to work harder.  And she says the struggle makes her journey mean so much more.Read the entire letter here:

"I have been working as a model for more than three years. I’ve been photographed for Italian Vogue, Dazed & Confused and ID. I’ve modelled at Paris, New York and London Fashion Weeks, but I haven’t done Milan Fashion Week. I’ve heard from other black models that it’s much harder to get work in Milan. The successful black girls don’t even bother travelling there for castings, because they know they won’t do as well, even if they’ve walked for great designers in all the other cities. Even people from Milan will say that the fashion market there is very behind. They’d rather stick with what they know.

I’ve only had one racist comment made directly at me. I’d gone to a casting for a London fashion designer, I can’t say who. They just said: “We only want pale-skinned girls to be in our show.” To be honest, I didn’t feel emotional about it. I just thought: “Well, it’s not my fault. That’s their opinion. They are out of date, and in time, they’ll have to change; they can’t continue with that perspective.”

When I started at Premier Models, Carole [White, the founder] warned me that some designers would have outdated views, and that it’s not personal. Annie [Wil­shaw, her booker at Premier] is bored with it: she says black girls have to work twice as hard to get picked up. Actually, it made me feel better that they raised the issue with me, that they weren’t awkward about it. And Annie is right: it is a lot harder for us. If a show uses 20 girls, there’ll only be space for two ethnic minorities — if that. There’s nothing to stop a fashion designer using only white girls in a show. There’s no union representation for models, and a designer can do whatever works for them.

Even though it may not be right, fashion portrays what people want to be; it reflects society, it’s the world we live in The preference for white skin seems to happen especially if a designer has been in the industry for a long time. But it’s a generalised mentality among fashion houses — they used to have mostly white customers, so it made sense to have white models, but now there are many more eastern Europeans, Asians and women from the Middle East buying fashion. The houses are struggling to adjust to the new market. It’s also possibly recession-related. In any time of rapid social change, people stick to what they know, and in fashion that’s the white girl.

“Shadeism” definitely exists: there are different attitudes to different shades of black. Lighter-skinned models are used more than darker-skinned ones, and if darker models are used, it tends to be for a traditional African look.

When designers create an African or tribal print, they’ll get a black girl to model it. I’d say I was in the middle of the spectrum — I’m dark-skinned, but I don’t have traditional African features, so I tend not to be stereotyped. There can also be problems with hair and make-up. Hair stylists never pack black hair products, because they don’t expect to see black girls. They can be scared to work with our hair. I wouldn’t call it racism; it’s just that finding real black hair is rare. Make-up is improving — girls such as Jourdan Dunn and Ajak doing well has helped — but sometimes, when my make-up is finished, it doesn’t look as nice as it does on white skin. They don’t know how to adjust to our skin tone.

You’ll find bitchy models, but it’s not because of race, it’s just their personality. I’ve never had any comments that have made me feel uncomfortable. Once you’ve got the job, everyone just behaves normally. I read about James Brown’s comments. [He repeatedly called the black presenter Ben Douglas a nigger and his female companion a nigger’s bitch, following the Baftas ceremony.] Maybe he was trying to be funny, but using that word is not cool, and it’s pretty out of date to find it funny. I’ve actually met James Brown — he was nice and asked me about my mother. He didn’t seem racist to me. When people are drunk, they say things they don’t mean. Things always go wrong when people aren’t in their right mind. Especially if you’re in the public eye, you’ll always get caught out. And if you’re in the public eye, you have a responsibility not to offend.

Even though it may not be right, fashion portrays what people want to be; it reflects society, it’s the world we live in. The idea of fashion looking better on white skin is associated with an old sense of elitism, yet society has become much more diverse. In time, I think fashion will change.

Fashion is always outrageous, though, and famously politically incorrect. The bitchiness is part of that outrageousness. If fashion stuck to the rules, it wouldn’t be such a big industry. Even if racism went away completely, they would find something else to be outrageous about. I would like to see fashion be more open and less prejudiced to different ethnicities, but it is the way it is because it’s such an exclusive world. Its exclusivity is why people want to be in it. If fashion had a broader perspective of beauty, would there be such a thing as a supermodel?

As it is now, if a black girl does well, it’s seen as more of an achievement. That’s what drives me to succeed. I don’t think talking about racism in fashion will change anything. Even if fashion changes, it’s not going to change the world. I’d rather just have a positive attitude. If I were feeling discriminated against, I might go into a casting thinking I’m not going to get this job. It’s negativity that will disadvantage me."

 

So what do you think?  What will it take for the fashion industry to see the world has so much more to offer in terms of beauty outside of the "white" look?

I agree with a previous

I agree with a previous poster who said the model contradicts herself. She also seems to be making excuses for poor behavior and foul treatment. It's as if she didn't want to hurt feelings. I think she's holding back due to fear of being shut out completely.

I was really into reading her letter until I got to the part where she says: "I’d say I was in the middle of the spectrum — I’m dark-skinned, but I don’t have traditional African features, so I tend not to be stereotyped." Wtf does "traditional African features" mean? Why is it that black people who aren't direct Africans always want to talk about or portray Africans ngatively? Because clearly there was nothing positive about what she said in that bit. She talks about society being stuck with this idea of white idealism, well she's a part of that. And by the way she DOES have black AFRICAN features. completely. So, she needs to stop fronting.

'BLACK IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL

'BLACK IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RACE IN THIS PLANET'. Replace the 'BLACK' with 'White' and there would be no difference between you and the racist designers. Irony? What we need is a change of mindset, which refuses to discriminate based on skin-color and which does not take any pride in belonging to a certain group. When physical beauty is in question (pretty shallow to begin with in the first place), skin-color or tone should be the least concern - black or white or purple or green. Unfortunately, the people yelling 'racist!' are sometimes a part of that group too.

I am an up and coming black designer and I would only book dark skinned black girls even if they werent considered high fashion, I am sick and tired of rappers like little wayne making silly songs like " Long hair thick red bone" Beautiful black women but I bet that she looks better red" It makes me sick and I'm not even dark skinned and it bothers me. Yes darker skin black models are marketable and I would only book beautiful dark skinned black models along with blondes and brunttes. Business is business and the reason why fashion houses doesn't use as many black models is due to black people not buying their product!! Its not personal, its business!!

ok i just want to say a few

ok i just want to say a few things. i'm a model as well and i can feel where she's coming from. when she says an african looking model those are the exact words that comes from the clients or our bookers mouths.they feel if they want a black girl she must be "black." it's messed up but it's true. and the comment about black girls not being skinny is bullshit. i'm talking legit black models with good agencies. i know tons of beautiful, girls who are 120 pounds at 5'10'' or better with a banging book and amazing walk and still have hard time finding jobs because of the racist industry. black girls have to have their book, body, hair, skin, clothes, personality, height, and weight 100 times better than the white girls to even be noticed.and not to be funny but the white girls aren't even on point most of the time and they book the jobs. the reason i think it's like this is like Leomie said, when there is a show or a shoot they will have 1 maybe 2 girls who aren't white. i've been modeling for 8 years in august. been to ny,milan,london, and paris countless times, and i have yet to be in a show with more than 2 black girls, unless it was a black designer. and at shoots i'm definitely the only black girl there. the point is it's hard for all models who are of color and it needs to change. at the end of the day it's a job like any other job, it's just racist as hell! i do get pissed of sometimes but i thank God that i've always been happy with what i do. the moment that changes.....i'm out! oh and the comment about the hair, all models will eventually have bad hair. all the years of damage, it takes a toll....and that's for girls of all colors!

SKIN COLOR continuous to be a huge factor in every aspect of black life from politics, President Obama being the 1st seated pres to have to produce a birth certificate after taking office) to the constant belittle of black men and women in the media. Yes Tracy organ told an off colored joke but to compare him to Mel Gibson and Micheal ??? (Sienfeld's Krammar) who both went on unprovoked racial tirades is ridiculous. And once agian the blacks come falling out of the woodwork to take massa's side! I feel for this young lady and all who constantly suffer due to skin color not lack of ability.

First of all, This model should be lucky to find any work, although I know that models dont have to be beauty queens...she does nothing for any of the outfits shes wearing...Naomi is another ugly dark skin model with that bald head and tacky ass contacts, She alway climbed to the top because she is a bitch....point blank...

Leomie needs to protect her

Leomie needs to protect her real hair by wearing wigs when she goes out on shoots. She seems to have a good set of thick hair that might become damaged from all that junk that they put in her hair. Then on off days needs to let her real hair breathe because if not she could end up having a bald head like Naomi or very thin hair Tyra!

First, re the "n****r"

First, re the "n****r" comment from James Brown. I'm so disappointed he says he was drunk but we all know that's when your true uninhibited self comes out so somehow he meant what he says. He issued a public and personal apology saying he wanted to highlight the widespread use of the N word and somewhat he is right and I blame Hip Hip. Hip Hop is now a widespread genre of music, even mostly listened to by Whites and Asians so from repeating the lyrics, it becomes second nature I guess and some may not realise it is actually offensive, whether said by another Black or a White or whatever. So rappers need to stop... look at Kreyshawn... she thinks cos she has a mixed child she can shout the word, offensive. Let's STOP using it altogether, there is NOTHING empowering about using that word. If someone had called an Asian celebrity a "P...y", their whole community would have stood... "N....a"? No one says anything and when they do, they get death threats..... We're outrageous

No sweetheart, clearly none

No sweetheart, clearly none of you have been to Africa, or have had the pleasure of meeting people from all over Africa. I am Nigerian and I hate when people say: "O wow, you're African. You don't look African. Are you sure you're Nigerian? Say something for me in Nigerian".....Or another ignorant comment: "You're one of the prettiest Africans I've ever seen." I'm sorry...Are you kidding me??? African people come in all shades and sizes. For anyone to say that there is a specific 'look' to an African...well that's just plain pitiful. Yes there are certain features that people have been conditioned into associating with African people or black people even. But to say that anyone who doesn't fit into that stereotype doesn't LOOK African. Well that's just ludicrous and completely ignorant. And remember, whether a person is black, African, white, Asian, Korean, Indian, purple, green, red or blue....EVERYONE is unique and beautiful and no race or shade of color should be made to feel inferior or superior to others. Thank you.

What can be said? Black

What can be said? Black people are as ignorant as white. And many still believe Africa is a country not a continent of 52 distinct countries. Same thing with the Caribbean, but it's a whole lot different. m In no way am I , can I compare the two. Just making the point that when people think of the Caribbean, they exclusively think Jamaica. And don't consider Latin countries Caribbean. But that's an whole other post, book, dissertation...what. Ignorance is deadly!

What Inaccuracies????? It

What Inaccuracies????? It sounds to me that your the one that's unexposed and ignorant. Since you're West African and have other African friends you are an aficionado on all things black.... That's what kills me about some Africans... I am 100% African American (as far as my mother and father are black and grandparents too) and I am light skinned and my hair is to damn there to my ass and every woman in my family is too.... Do you know why that is???? It's from the rape and pillaging of my ancestors!!!! All African Americans are basically "watered down" or "diluted" versions of Africans.... Period. If you have ever picked up a book or even read a little bit about our plight then you would know that white slave owner's intentionally raped African women to lighten their "stock" because at the time that's all we were, stock (what do you think the first commodities traded on Wall Street were? African slaves)... You should read the Willie Lynch letter and you will see how this was a common practice... http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Perspectives_1/Willie_Lynch_lett... If you were a slave owner and you wanted to have "whiter" looking slaves then you bred them with white people, thus giving you the modern day African American. I'm sure the same thing went down in England as it did in Brazil and other Western nations. It's not her who thinks all Africans are dark with saved heads, its the fashion industry that does.... So get it right.... Can you name one African who looks like Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Gabby Union, Jennifer Hudson, Tyra Banks or even Naomi Campbell???? Probably not, because your ancestors weren't raped for centuries.... We are the product of that and you are not... You can't tell me that you can't tell the difference between a Nigerian and an Ethiopian or Somalian.. Please, if you can't, we can... Basically she's saying that no matter what type of black person you are it's not an equal playing field in the fashion world... If you have 35 girls in a fashion show and only 4 or 5 are women of color that's the problem... So to you honey, the world is bigger than Africa so maybe you should read up on other cultures before you make such, as you so ineloquently put it, ignorant comments your damn self.... #justsaying

WOW, I am quite shocked by

WOW, I am quite shocked by this comment. Africans come in ever color, shape, and size, and you can have two sisters in Africa look like night and day because of the extreme genetic diversity that exists. I was born in Nigeria, but I have Portuguese and German in me as well. What you may not realize is that Europeans have been in Africa for centuries, and interacted and had children with the African women there as well. Some of it was rape, and some of it was not. So to say that we do not understand your plight is a horrible injustice. Africa lost entire cultures and languages because of the slave trade, and Africans feel it too. The difference is that we do not let past injustices keep us from holding our heads high, staring in the face of any white person, and beating them at their own game. I really wish Africans and African Americans would come together and help each other become a stronger Black America, but that will never happen as long as bitter and unfriendly African Americans continue to think negatively of Africans.

All I can say is this. If we

All I can say is this. If we stop buying their clothes and start demanding to see black women in more magazines perhaps they will take notice and listen. You have to hit companies in their pockets. Stop buying their products! No more designer clothes. But, some of us are designer/fashion victims and will only buy top name designers regardless of how we are represented. Many AA's ( I am an AA) perpetuate that light-skin/dark skin thing. I cannot believe it still goes on. It is really sad how our own people discriminate against our own people. It still happens today. So, unless we embrace that all of our women are beautiful with different beautiful shades, there will always be this problem. White americans know this and down play our beauty. When they really know the real deal that they emulate our big butts, pay top dollars to tan and get butt implants, darken their skin by going to tanning salons, get breast implants, etc. About the modelling thing. Stay the Eff out of Milan! period. They dont want us there, Eff them and dont buy any of the effing clothes. WE have to make these companies recognize us. So, if you do not see us being represented propertly, dont buy the product. It worked during the civil rights movement when the buses were boycotted and our people walked everywhere. We did not ride the bus because they made us ride in the back of the bus. If a person refused to move to the back of the bus, they were arrested. We are living in very turbulent and sad times now. Our young people will perish because of lack of knowledge. Stop buying these products that do not represent us! Boycott!!

I personally agree with

I personally agree with nearly everything she said. The WORLD we live in wants to see white skin. Black, Asian, Middle Eastern, Indian people, etc., want to see white skin. That is the standard of beauty in the WORLD. Thank imperialism for that, but until EVERYONE stops beileving that White people are more beautiful (and thus the furthest away from White characteristics is most ugly, i.e., Black people), then all this complaining of racism is FUTILE.

I completely agree with you.

I completely agree with you. The world indeed has been conditioned to believe White people to be the more superior race. They have been said to be "pure" and the most beautiful. This ignorance has to end. It has led to so many unfortunate things such as colorism within the same race in which light skinned black people feel that they are better than darker skinned black people and vice-versa. Furthermore, it has also lead to other forms of self-hate, such as bleaching one's skin. People should be happy with the skin God gave them. People need to start loving themselves because only then can they find true happiness.

And this brings up that dark

And this brings up that dark skin girl documentary. All that documentary did was make non-dark skin people be thankful they weren't dark-skin and pity those women. That documentary isn't changing people's perceptions. People have know about the light/white preference for centuries. All it does is make people want to shield their offspring from the negative treatment and thus perpetuates the whole thing, b/c people want their kids to be light skin. It's like vicious cycle that I see no end to.
