2011 is surely the year of the African model. African models including Ajak Deng, Aminata Niaria, Georgie Badiel, Flaviana Matata & Ataui Deng have graced the pages of Vogue, i-D, Uptown and other high profile publications.
Some have nabbed coveted campaigns such as Kenzo which features Ataui Deng in their Kenzo Spring 2011 campaign.
We have had our eyes on Flaviana Matata for a while and things keep getting better.
Flaviana is featured alongside Ling Ling in an editorial titled “Passing Fancy” in the February 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused.
The editorial was shot by photographer Mel Bles with styling by Katie Shillingford.
