Fashion Editor Extraordinaire – Dimeji Alara presents his First Cover for Elle South Africa



Nigerian stylist, journalist, and editor Dimeji Alara following his appointment as Fashion Editor of ELLE Magazine South Africa has produced his first cover for the magazine.

The cover features Brazilian model Deise and South African model Mieke both wearing Gucci Pre-fall 2017. The shoot took place at the newly opened Zeitz MOCCA; The Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa in Cape Town.

In 2018, the MOCCA is set to launch a costume institute, becoming the only major museum with a dedicated focus on the contemporary costume in Africa. The costume institute’s mission is to acquire a representative collection of the contemporary costume by designers from Africa and its Diaspora.

From these behind the scenes clips we cannot wait to see the full cover shoot, as you can tell, it’s going to be incredibly appealing!
