Naomi Campbell Makes Surprise Runway Walk to Celebrate African Designers in Paris

Curated via Twitter from W Magazine’s twitter account….

The winner of the LVMH Prize, South African designer Thebe Magugu, premiered a special presentation of his collection at Paris Fashion Week, and Imane Ayissi has reportedly become the first black African designer to show his work on a Paris haute couture runway. (Only a few luxury labels, such as Dior, Chanel, and Givenchy, are permitted to call their clothes "haute couture," so Ayissi’s entry into the elite club is truly an historic event.

While his calling card is the bespoke tailoring he does for menswear, much of the Fall 2020 collection he debuted at Paris Fashion Week was notably feminine, as the looks worn by Hammam, Campbell, and many others demonstrated.

Ize showed his collection for the first time at Paris Fashion Week and was supported by Imaan Hammam, who opened the show, and Campbell, who closed it out.
