I was recently approached by Fashion4Africa to styled their upcoming campaign. Fashion4Africa is a project that supports emerging models and Fashion designers of African origin in the UK and Africa through mentoring, training and development projects funded by fundraising events.

For this particular photo shoot, Most statement pieces used as ornaments, headpieces are all Nzingah pieces of jewelry, by the talented Bev Quintal who is an incredible designer. I will elaborate more on her accessories in another post. But for now, all I can say is: her pieces are probably some of the best I have seen. So I really got creative with them here.Styling one as a hat, headpiece, and even a visor. I really appreciate how Anna( the director ) let me get creative but not too much because I can go slighy overboard if left unattended, lol.

Also, while styling for Fashion4Africa, I found out, they advocate for change in the perception ‘African Fashion & Beauty’ with the help of various African Fashion media houses. that contributes to elevating the hopes and aspiration of the young, emerging models and designers of African Origin in the UK and Africa who will also be our future entrepreneurs.

For this shoot, it was all about showcasing the best of these 3 models who won the face of Fashion4Africa competition. I then used a modern and yet traditional take on the Afro-Chic to style them.

Like in the first picture, they scream warrior, feminity, unapologetically powerful and proud of who and what they represent which I always try to portrait in my work. Nonetheless, this wouldn’t have been possible without the great hairstylist and makeup artist and Anna, the director. Shot in a South London photography studio by FemelleStudio.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts and which one your favorite picture.xoxo
