Vogue Website Features Shiona Turini

June 18, 2020

Bermudian fashion consultant Shiona Turini has been featured in an article on Vogue.com entitled “11 Black Women in Fashion on What Brings Them Joy.”

In the article, Ms. Turini says, “Being away from my family in Bermuda has been the hardest thing for me.

“I am sure many others feel this way as well, and hopefully it’s making everyone value their family time more. We get together for a Zoom dinner every Sunday night, which has really become the highlight and most joyful moments of my weeks. It’s almost as beautiful as the chaotic, energetic, boisterous, loving, fun mess as our in-person dinners.

“Over Zoom, about eight households [my parents, sister, aunts, cousins, and nephews] still have found a way to gang up on me about my attempts at cooking.

“I’ve been making donations to almost every organization that comes my way, honestly. There are so many excellent causes, and even small amounts can make a big difference. Recently I’ve been volunteering weekly with the organization Watts Community Core. They distribute approximately 300 bags of groceries and hot meals directly to residents in Nickerson Gardens in Watts in Los Angeles.

“Access to nutritious food has historically been a racial issue – Black and brown communities have often been deprived. I’ve seen firsthand how important it is to support smaller organizations that are focused on fixing things directly within their own communities.”
