Ituen Basi? Jewel By Lisa? Georgie Badiel Imprints Afro for ‘io donna’ Magazine.

Written by . Posted in Blog, Editorials.

Burkina Faso-born model Georgie Badiel features in the “Imprinting Afro” editorial in the March issue of IO Donna magazine.  Georgie is seen sporting pieces  that appear to have been African Inspired, she also dons an Afro in this shoot. Stunning looks aside, the pieces couldn’t help but take our hearts back some of Africa’s finest designers and the similarities in the pieces Georgie was donning, see a couple of our reminisces below:

Georgie Badiel [Left] is styled in Printed Skirt very reminiscent of the choice of fabric African Designer Ituen Basi would use.

The cropped trousers and warm earth tones from the piece Georgie is sporting took our mind back to Jewel by Lisa’s SS 11 Global Minimalism Collection.
