Watch this face: Malaika Firth
There are about 12 womenswear looks in the recent Prada Spring/Summer 2014 menswear show in Milan (all super gorgeous and Spring 2005-y), and the casting for the female models are pretty selective. ONLY one veteran known face (Cameron Russell) and the rest are to-watch-out for newbies. One girl that stood out is Malaika Firth, for a brand that doesn’t really cast black models she must have that certain X factor to have caught the eyes of Miuccia and team. Malaika is Kenya-British, and only around 19 years old. She has been signed to Premier for a few years but looks like she’s going full steam ahead right now. It also doesn’t hurt that the British are very supportive of their own homegrown designers and models. Hope to see more of Malaika in the upcoming Spring show season!
