British Vogue editor Edward Enninful has said working on May’s issue, which has five disabled cover stars, was “one of the proudest moments of my career”.
Titled Reframing Fashion, the edition focuses on 19 disabled people in total from fashion, sport and the arts.
The magazine’s cover stars include actress Selma Blair, who has multiple sclerosis, and model Ellie Goldstein, who has Down’s syndrome.
Enninful, 51, said he had “learned so much” from producing the issue.
“My tenure here at Vogue has always been about inclusivity and diversity, and people forget how hard it is for the disabled community,” Enninful told the BBC.
He revealed last year in his memoir that he had visual and hearing impairments and a blood disorder, which he said present “challenges” in his role as editor-in-chief at British Vogue.
“It was so important I could relate – I felt real pride that people can actually speak up about disabilities and not have to hide it and how it impacts them.
“I think this is one of the most incredible issues I’ve had the privilege of editing in my tenure.”
