Vogue Italia To Do An Africa Themed Issue?

At the Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2012 show, L’Uomo Vogue’s Franca Sozzani revealed that she is working on another Africa-themed issue for the spring to hit newsstands in May or June. Sozzani stated the issue would be “about people who are from Africa in a positive way.” Since these one-off issues have proven to be lucrative and there is documented interest for them, why can’t there be an entire magazine devoted to fashion in the African diaspora? Mario Epanya famously pitched Vogue Africa to Conde Nast and was rejected (his photography above). If Vogue Italia is planning yet another one-off issue, why reject Epanya’s idea? And has there been an increase in diversity in Vogue’s pages in general?

What do you think of the politics surrounding Vogue Italia’s upcoming Africa issue?
