Africa Rising by Model.Com

February 7th, 2016

The rise of African fashion has been slow but steady. And this latest photoshoot by Model.Com has gone a long way to making people aware of the amazing things African fashion designers are doing. Model.Com was represented in LFDW, and their experience inspired this shoot, Africa Rising.

Photographer, Ed Singleton, teams up with stylist, Solange Franklin, to feature African designers in this shoot. We love that models Ajak Deng and Maria Borges were involved as well. See the beautiful shoot below.
