The Africans invaded New York Fashion Week and brought a whole lot of attitude with them, thanks to ThisDay/Arise Magazine! We take you backstage with some exclusive photos from the event. More coverage to come both in pictures, words and Ladybrille TV.
Oh, you don’t know me? Me! Allow me to introduce myself. I am one of the most sought after, fiercest model in South Africa. I go by the name Milen Magese.
“Yeah, yeah. I am in New York. Gurl you need to hurry because I am at the African Fashion Collective and I’m about to walk.
“How you like me now?!”
“Hello people! AFRIKA in the house! We are so holding it down for South Africa also.”
Nana [far right says] “I told you it was not a solo thing. Now me and my African SISTAS will RIP the runway. Ha ha ha ha!”
“Yes I am Nyasha Zimucha winner of Miss Africa USA and I had to come through to show support.”
“But of course we had to show support. This is truly beautiful”
Yes, yes, yes. We needed to be here to make sure it is a blessed event.
