Bethann Hardison and W‘s Edward Enninful are some of the most prominent voices in fashion pushing for more diversity on the runway, in advertising and on the pages of industry magazines. Together and separately, activist and stylist, they have been tireless promoters of models of color, and so, on Friday, they hosted a casual dinner at the Edition hotel in New York to celebrate precisely some of the women they’ve championed, like Maria Borges, Aamito Lagum, and Dilone.
