In an interview with the Daily Mail, Carole White, a UK-based agent who has worked with some of the world’s top models including Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington, discussed the racism that permeates the fashion industry:
“Carole says the problem stems from the influential fashion capitals of Milan and Paris.
‘There, they absolutely don’t want black girls. A black model has to be a real star before you can take her there. They only take a black girl when the biz is buzzing about her.’”
