We wrapped up part three of the series for the Women of the African Diaspora coffee table book this past September in Paris, France. Diaraye Barry, the current face of Fulaba directed the shoot, which took place at the Louis Vuitton Foundation museum, Jardin d’Acclimatation, quartier Passy and the pont de Bir-Hakeim.
This shoot featured a modern twist of the traditional African bazin and indigo fabrics. Models, Erika and Maguy wore tailored outfits and looks from designers, DBN BAZIN and L’artisane Shop. Erika has origins from Spain and Martinique. Maguy, though born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, grew up in the Central African Republic.
The Paris series began earlier this year with model, Hadja who wore looks from Alphadi at the passage Alexandrine, quartier Charonne, and the François Mitterrand library. Hadja is from Guinea and immigrated to France at the age of 20.
In the video clip, Erika is wearing a tailored dress made of indigo fabric from Guinea, Fulaba’s silver Fulani earrings paired with our silver Fulani inspired cuff bracelet.
We had Guinea representing all around with makeup artist, Aissatou (IG: @missmakeupholikk), photographer, Lamine Diallo, model, Hadja and director, Diaraye. Stay tuned for more details on the book, which is set to come out next year by following us on IG (@fulaba) or subscribing to our newsletter.
