PRADA x Fall/Winter 2013 (campaign)

Malaika's First


So, of course, it goes without saying... that this is L-O-N-G OVERDUE... but, I just had to say it anyway, lol...
After just one season of being on the international, fashion scene, Kenyan born (UK raised), African model, Malaika Firth scored MAJOR points with her first advertising campaign, for Miuccia Prada's eponymous label.

Not only is this major for a model's first ad campaign, it's also ground-breaking because the house of Prada has not utilized a brown-skinned (read: Black) model in their advertisements in almost 10 years; Naomi Campbell -naturally- was the first, dark-skinned girl to pose for them (back in the early 1990's), for their Fall/Winter 1994 campaign. See the love, below...
