I am just happy to see the new faces cropping up on the catwalk aside from the usual Jourdan Dunn and hope the next big one will come from here so that they can give Naomi Campbell a run for her money okay maybe in a few years to come and carve a name for themselves. They may have not featured in big shows such as Burberry Prosurm or but I am happy that designers like Vivienne Westwood ( she always has black models and even fought for more inclusion of them) used them.
Here are the lovely ladies,

Models do make the clothes they allow the clothes to speak volumes, designers usually say a model can either make or break a show and its true so give all models equal representation you could make a splash as the way i loved lanvin's collection of black beauties in their last shot of spring summer collection 2011 featuring Ajak Deng, Jeneill Williams, Ataui Deng, Jourdan Dunn and Melodie Monrose. Amazing!!
In 1973 when black models took to the runway the first time in France they received a standing ovation and it made such history to the point of in january this same event was commemorated. Click Here to see the article.
