Kudos to Vogue Italia for giving children a voice to express themselves. 

The world famous fashion magazine started a new campaign for its June covers titled "OurNewWorld". 

On several Instagram posts where various covers designed by children were shared, Vogue Italia said that the issue is entirely dedicated to children, featuring eight covers drawn by eight very young authors, aged between two and 10.

“This issue has been created for and together with children from different countries. Kids have been the most overlooked and least obvious victims of the pandemic; we’re starting from them to imagine a new world," said Emanuele Farneti, Chief Editor of Vogue Italia.  

With this campaign, the glossy aims to give children a voice in the new world that we're all trying to adjust to due to the pandemic. 

These are the eight covers that were designed by children from different countries.

Violetta T. (5) from Milan didn't want to do the drawing until she found out it was for a magazine that you buy at the newsstand, she put a lot of effort into it.
