Hello beautiful humans, how much did you miss us?
Christopher Kane and FACE have come to a consensus
That the voices of black and brown people are not elevated enough.
Together we witnessed the horrifying scenes from around a year ago
Where racism, discrimination and brutality were all on show
Since then we’ve seen awareness, protests and hashtags grow.
With this blossoming movement we proved the extent of our resilience
The beauty of our pride, the strength of our brilliance
We will no longer be hushed. We will no longer be silenced.
In the fashion industry our faces are rare, often tokenised
While our cultures are appropriated, tarnished and demonised
But here’s your chance to see the world through our eyes.
There’s a huge variety of entries coming your way
Films, photography and even some poetry on display
Because our skin and our lives deserve respect, night and day.
Thank you Christopher Kane & thank you FACE for this opportunity
This is bigger than a magazine it represents you and me
You are invited, cordially, to PLATFORM Edition 3!
