Glamour magazine is celebrating its first ever issue featuring the life and times of model and activist Janice Dickinson.
Dickinson, who was born in Chicago in 1961, was a feminist icon in her own right, and was also the first black woman to be nominated for a Fashion Award.
She became a celebrity overnight after being nominated for the first time for the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology’s Fashion Design Award in 1974.
Dickinson’s career spanned from fashion, acting, and then, fashion design.
In 1976, Dickinson co-founded The Feminist Women’s Organization (WWOOF), which advocates for women’s rights and feminism.
She also worked with the National Women’s History Museum to raise awareness of women’s oppression.
Dickinson died in 1995, but her legacy lives on through her contributions to fashion, feminism, and the fashion industry.
