If you’ve opened up social media this week, you’re likely to have seen a slew of new Vogue “covers.” They might feature your neighbor, co-worker, or the art student next door. The DIY front pages stem from the #VogueChallenge, a viral endeavor that reimagines what the glossies they mimic could be.
The content offers a peek at photographers on the rise, aspiring models, and anyone willing to open up Photoshop and have a little fun. The faux-covers envision Vogues from countries yet to have an imprint, a range of cover subjects more diverse than anything fashion has attempted thus far, and a wealth of painting and illustration.
The Kenyan version of the challenge titled #VogueChallengeKE did not disappoint either. It was not only rich in color and beauty but also rich in diversity and the Kenyan creativity. We sieved through Twitter and Instagram to bring you some of the best of the photos posted by Kenyans on the hash tag. Tell us what you think about our picks.
