Kenyan first black model for Prada
02 July 2013, 12:47
Kenyan-born, U.K. raised model, Malaika Firth becomes the first black model cast for a Prada campaign for the first time since 1994, The Standard.
19 year old Firth will feature in their fall/winter 13 as one of seven in the new ad campaign, starring alongside the likes of industry heavyweight Christy Turlington and Chinese model Fei Fei Sun.
Prada rarely hires Asian and black models so the 19-year-old's inclusion in the campaign is something of a milestone.
