For its May 2023 issue, called “Reframing Fashion,” British Vogue is collaborating with Tilting the Lens, writer Sinéad Burke’s accessibility consulting agency to recognise and celebrate the disabled community in the fashion industry.

With five covers, the issue spotlights five disabled changemakers, including actress Selma Blair, model Ellie Goldstein, American Sign Language performer Justina Miles and model Aaron Rose Philip and Burke herself. The content of the magazine was created with an eye to equity on photoshoot sets and in reporting. The British Vogue team also participated in a digital accessibility workshop.

For the first time, this edition of British Vogue and all issues for the next year will be available in audio format and for Braille readers in physical and digital formats this is in collaboration with the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
