Fashion model Malaika Firth has been making major moves in her industry as of late. The 19-year old bi-racial supermodel in the making was the second black model to star in a Prada campaign in twenty years, and is now making waves in the UK. Malaika covers the November 2013 shopping supplement to British Vogue magazine, making it her first Vogue cover months after having walked in Prada’s fall 2013 runway show.
On her work with Prada:
I’m proud that I’m the second black [Prada] model, but I’m also biracial. It’s a positive that I’m not white and I’m not black.
The November 2013 issue of British Vogue is on sale now.
