Africa seems to constantly leave her imprints internationally. With the great deal of work that goes into sourcing for global recognition, this Africa rising photo shoot by models.com is definitely more than a few steps in the right direction.
The shoot inspired by the just concluded 2015 Lagos Fashion & Design week, where models.com were present to view the showcase of 70 African designers interpret their vision for Spring Summer 2016, it is believed that they were beyond impressed with the continent’s showcase and for that reason a few designers were chosen to be spotlighted upon.
The Africa Rising shoot starred South Sudanese model, Ajak Deng and Angolan model Maria Borges who were believed to project the African heritage. Styled by Solange Franklin and through the lense of Ed Singleton, the exclusive shoot featured outfits from the following designers, Almasika, Bridget Awosika, Brother Vellies, Grey, Kenneth Ize, Loza Maleombho, Meena, Needle & Thread, Nkwo, Nomad Vintage NYC, Omer Asim, Omodi, Orange Culture, Osei Duro, Post Imperial, Re Bahia, Richard Braqo, Third Crown, Tree Fairfax, Tsemaye Binite, Sophie Zinga, & Washington Roberts.
