Models and real-life best friends Anok Yai and Alton Mason are on the cover of Vogue Brasil August 2019 issue.
Both models, so far have walked for some of the biggest runway shows in the major fashion capitals around the world. Anok Yai made headlines last year when she became the first black model to open at Prada since 1997 and has continued to be a trailblazer. Alton Mason also made history as the first black man to walk for Chanel. The dancer cum model was also in Nigeria earlier in the year for Arise Fashion Week 2019.
In the full feature, the editor wrote:
Considered fresh blood in the industry – they have been around for just over three years – they already have a powerful resume out there that includes this title, of course.
They would not have better names to present to you, in a cool and energetic way, the supersuming of the European 2019/20 winter parades.
