Edward Enninful, Fashion and Style Director at W Magazine, has been brought on to Prada’s 'The Iconoclasts' project as a breath of fresh air to the artistic vision of the brand. Prada has hired many top stylists to work with 'The Iconoclasts' campaign since the original launch in 2009, but the direction Enninful is taking it in is uncharted and exciting.
The Harlem Renaissance is an important part of the development of the African-American identity; it allowed for a new type of artistic and educational advancement to be made in disenfranchised communities that was nonexistent before. During this time, the minds and the talents of black people were nurtured and celebrated in a way that was unique, and has since changed music, literature, and fashion indefinitely. It is exciting to see such a crucial part of African-American culture being represented by an iconic brand such as Prada. Being familiar with Mr. Enninful's work as an avid reader of W, I am absolutely sure it is going to be fantastic. Bravo!
