Christopher John Rogers on racism in the fashion industry 
"
I always wanted to make clothes that performed polish," Christopher John Rogers tells Marjon Carlos in the September issue of Vanity Fair. The designer is speaking about making clothes that don't shy away from color and celebrate the act of dressing up — something that many of his white professors wrote off as tacky in a luxury world that praises the minimalism of The Row. Rogers, who notes he's one of the most visible Black faces in fashion now, goes on to say that Black excellence will come when we "no longer accept white mediocrity." {Vanity Fair
