MY FASHION DIARIES

Remember Malaika Firth? I did a post on her a couple of years back. She was the face of major fashion label PRADA in their Fall, 2013 campaign. Most people may not know her but she is putting Kenya up high in the global fashion scenes.
Malaika was born in the Kenyan Coast and raised in the UK where she made history as the first black model to represent Prada in over 19 years after Naomi Campbell.
As mentioned in my PREVIOUS POST Malaika has also worked with Burberry and Asos fashion brands. She has also appeared on Roller Coaster, Tank and i-D magazines.

2015 seems to be looking up for this young model. She has been featured on Observer Magazine and Vogue Japan.

Check out the photos below.
