BN Style Bytes: “La Mia Africa” – African Fashion showcased in Vanity Fair Italia



With the 2012 International Herald Tribune Luxury Conference focusing on “The Promise Of Africa And The Power Of The Mediterranean” this week, it’s timely that we get our first look at the “La Mia Africa” fashion editorial from the November 2012 issue of Vanity Fair Italia which was shot in Lagos, Nigeria after the MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week.

We spotted pieces by Anita Quansah, Bridget Awosika, Tiffany Amber, Odio Mimonet, Jewel by Lisa, Iconic Invanity, Kinabuti and Jess Stephanie; this is a definitely an Africa luxe spread!

Styling by Veronica Odeka, Makeup by Bimpe Onakoya and I’m sure fashion watchers recognize Beth Models – Moyin Arowosola and Chika Emmanuel!
