I saw this image on a friend (who is a midwife)'s Instagram last night. I thought:  "yes, this is exactly what they should be doing right now."

The publication, which continued printing during two world wars, can be a document of our creativity and society at a moment in time. Vogue's July 2020 cover story does just that. Through telling the story of three individuals, it celebrates the millions of key workers in the UK who put on their uniforms in the face of danger each day due to the ongoing pandemic. 

I feel as though this edition is particularly significant because it represents a shift in who we admire and who we give celebrity status to. 

In three posts, I'll introduce you to the train driver, the midwife, and the supermarket assistant who feature in the three covers.
