On March 1st, 2014 The R’ajwa Company flew to Los Angeles to Catherine Asanov’s Studio for the African Inspired Promotional Photo shoot with Eva Marcille.
(It is interesting to see them draw from specific countries in Africa including Nigeria where the “gele” (headgear worn mostly by the women of the Yoruba tribe) is found.)
African designers such as OYATO designs, 84Gem and Barkers Woode provided outfits and jewelry for the shoot. Nathanael Alessandroni of Fenty P Barker was on site and created an outfit specially for the photo shoot.
Check it out and share your thoughts. Do you think they nailed it?
