September 20, 2016 — Art Director and Executive producer, Christopher Sollinger, cast various industry icons, veterans, and new faces for the historic cover series of the next edition of "Harper's Bazaar India". Nine versions of the magazine will be available, each featuring a different woman of color on the cover including Tyra Banks as well as Tracey Africa and Geena Rocero, who become the first transgender women to appear on the cover of the iconic "Harper's Bazaar." Sollinger produced the shoot over the course of a week in New York.

'The Nine Wonders of the World' cover series is a twist on the unofficial title sometimes given to those new buildings, structures, projects or even designs that are deemed to be comparable. The series interprets and showcases this "new" as diversity. The new being that diversity is acceptable and celebrated today.

"Diversity has always been the DNA of Harper's Bazaar. The Indian edition is delighted to follow in such illustrious steps", said Harper's Bazaar India Editor Nonita Kalra.

"Showcasing white woman after white woman on covers does not work anymore, we need to show the women of the world that is of now," said Sollinger. "The world is changing and with this story we want to be apart of that global revolution."

"This cover means the world to me and for me to represent my community, it is such a humbling experience for me, I can't thank Christopher and Harper's Bazaar for allowing me to be on the cover," said Tracey Norman.

"It is an honor to be on this historic cover series with the women that I've looked up to. Growing up in the Philippines I used to dream of being on the cover of Harper's Bazaar", said Rocero.

The Models:

* Tyra Banks is a veteran and icon to the runway and various leading advertising campaigns.

* Tracey Africa is the first trans model to have multiple beauty campaigns in the 1970s. Tracey was also shot by Irving Penn for Vogue Italia.

About the Cover:

We commissioned American Artist, Isaac Aden, to create one of a kind head pieces for each model. He is represented by the world renowned Ethan Cohen Gallery. We shot the women around art and paintings in the gallery, fusing international artistry with global beauty. KC Jones, the stylist, has contributed to top Italian publications. KC brought in designers Chanel & Roberto Cavalli who were extremely supportive of this project from start to finish. KC Jones mixed influences and designers from Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe tying them together with a cohesive Americana trend.
