Supermodel Naomi Campbell has urged fashion industry bosses to rope in more black models to walk the ramp.

After collecting the Special Recognition Award in honour of her 25-year modelling career in the capital, the 40-year-old catwalk beauty used the platform to speak in favour of young black models who are being shunted in favour of white women, Evening Standard reported.

“We’re all aware that we need to introduce more women (of colour). But what I’ve seen recently is that it has gone backwards slightly. We need to raise awareness again and need to start using women of colour more.”

“When I look at the shows this season, there weren’t as many as a year-and-a-half ago. We’ve got to keep speaking out, so as boring as it may be, if you hear me saying it over and over again I have to stand up for my fellow comrades (sic),” said Campbell.

“It’s not for myself, but the younger girls who come up to me and say, ‘We didn’t get used this season, we didn’t do this, someone used 81 models and didn’t use one of us’. In that respect if they come up and talk to me, and I’m able to speak on their behalf, then I will,” she added.

Meanwhile, Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue supported Campbell for backing the issue of the black models and to embrace varied ethnicity in the fashion world.

“I really admire Naomi for lobbying about the use of models with a more varied ethnicity,” he said.
