By Sewe Ishola,
Angolan-born top model, Maria Borges wowed in a custom made Tiffany Amber Culture Torera Basket Weave dress and Imani belt on the red carpet last night at the Victoria’s Secret pink fashion show afterparty.
The 2013 Forbes African top model was welcomed with applause from her co-supermodels, Bella Hadid and Karlie Kloss as she stepped on the red carpet at the fashion event, which held in Shanghai.
The belt is from the newest Tiffany Amber collection, which she showed at the recently held Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design week.
Known for many firsts; Maria Borges made history in November 2015 by being the first black model to ever walk in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show whilst wearing her natural afro hair and in 2017, she was the first African woman to feature on the cover of the American version of ELLE, 20 years after Sudanese model, Alek Wek in 1997, and yesterday she racked in another first, wearing an African brand on the pink carpet.
Tiffany Amber becomes the first African brand to grace Victoria’s Secret pink carpet.
With an “African Queen” brief, the Tiffany Amber Culture team created a youthful strapless basil green dress in their signature torera hand-woven fabric which was styled with a gold turban and the highly coveted Imani belt .
