Model Deddeh Howard recreated iconic ad campaigns with the Black Mirror Project to call attention to fashion’s diversity problem. “I would walk into various fashion model agencies and I would immediately be compared to that one or two black model that they had on the roster,” she writes on her website. “Even though I was told by those agencies that I have an amazing look and wish they could represent me, they already have a black model. Besides having an abundance of white models. It seemed as if one or two black models on the roster are enough to represent us all.

“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.”
