Sudanese model, Ajak Deng and Angola's Maria Borges bring all the Black Girl Magic fab in 'Africa Rising' shoot for Models.com.
The exclusive shoot was photographed by Ed Singleton and styled by Solange Franklin, who as described by Models.com, was on the mission to feature designers that have ties to Africa- whether overtly or covertly.
Models.com expressed that the inspiration/idea behind the shoot was sparked when they traveled to Lagos last year for the Lagos Fashion and Design Week. They saw a selection of the best that the continent had to offer in design talent. 70 designers displayed their latest vision for Spring/Summer 2016 shows in the busy commercial capital and provided an eclectic range of inspiration and expertise. Coming back newly energized by the lush colors and surprising details, Models.com set on to connect the dots between the established and the new generation, giving a spotlight to a chosen few.
