This is Cole's first all black issue and  goes by the theme “Black is Beautiful”.

COLE is owned by a Black Woman, Dana Cole and she is constantly advocating the use of black models in her work. She understands that All Black Everythang is the magazine that this industry needs right now. As she said, "giving black models the audience they deserve".

Black People are awesome and come in many different skin tones and from many different cultures, and COLE, is dedicating this issue solely to them.

Stories of industry racism are now so well known it's easy to become blasé about them, and many come from the few successful black models in the business. Jordan Dunn - a popular black model - has spoken out repeatedly and bravely about how she is often turned away because the client "doesn't want any more black girls" and is rejected for being "colored".

Obviously black as a clothing color is de rigueur – so slimming! – But as a skin color it has, shall we say, struggled to be accepted by the fashion mainstream. Black models are still too often relegated to token status, even though one of the most successful models in the world now.

WHAT IS COLE MAGAZINE?

COLE MAGAZINE is a bi-annual Fashion, Art and Nude magazine based out of Oslo, Norway. Started by Black Female Beauty Photographer Dana Cole, in 2014. The winter issues , are about all that is alive, fresh and ‘in’ in the fashion world. While the summer issue, focuses on classy, classic and vibrant nude photography in a very fashion forward way. Dana has a passion for both aspects of the fashion world and could not envision doing this without one or the other. From lovely bold color to soft and sensual black & whites, all is loved!
