African Prints in Fashion - Exploring the Imprint of the African Diaspora on Fashion

by Ms. K

Malaika Firth was born in Kenya and is of British-Kenyan decent. Malaika was one of the first Black models to appear in a Prada advertising campaign in almost 20 years. I know – pretty lame of Prada but hey…

For Elle France photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino took these awesome and stunning shots of her. I love the clothing! There is everything here that I like and would wear instantly: striped dresses, burgundy & print skirts, print dresses and, and, and. It’s a mix of casual, boheme, Africa-inspired, 60’s inspired, print-infused looks.
