#CivilChik Anok Yai is out here killing the fashion and model game. The model who was discovered on social media after her picture went viral during Howard Homecoming is now Prada’s first black opener in 10 years!
This is huge and since her picture went viral she has become apart of NEXT models, was apart of PRADA’s S/S 2018 campaign, made her runway debut at PRADA’s menswear, and now she is making history!
Prada is sadly known for their lack of diversity on the runway but their Fall 2018 show in Milan opened up with a bang on Thursday night with our girl Anok Yai. Anok Yai is now following in the steps of the legendary Naomi Campbell who was the first black model to open a Prada show back in 1997. (It’s been over 20 years!)
Congrats Anok Yai and Happy Black History month folks!
