Veteran Talent Series: A Conversation With Giannie Couji

Years in advance of the 2020 racial reckoning  in fashion, Giannie Couji was an already established and consistent voice in anti-racism advocacy in fashion on social media. 

Model, long time iD Magazine stylist, and editor of Ubikwist Magazine, Couji cut her teeth in Europe working on editorials and campaigns with the likes of Jean Baptiste Mondino and Jean Paul Goude, but it’s her move stateside over a decade ago that has shaped her current profile as activist - spotlighting racist practices and generally intolerable behavior across the fashion industry. Couji is an outlier whose view on the industry has placed her squarely at the intersection of the tired old school practices and the deafening demand for change. In this episode Couji details her journey from Martinique to Paris, London and New York chronicling the discovery of the world of styling as career, Judy Blame as collaborator and mentor and her amplified voice in the age of Covid.
