Fun Fact: The model in the main photograph is Kaone Kario from Botswana. She was 2005 Nokia Face of Africa winner…….as part of her prize, she was given a modelling contract with Storm Models South Africa worth US $125000…..well, Storm SA went bust this year!! So her contract was cancelled, she is now signed with Zero Models, Cape Town and is doing really well in SA……Just goes to show that all is not what it seems……we really have to give Oluchi props because she is about the only Face of Africa winner that has done really well internationally……Anyway, I think Kaone is gorgeous!

I usually don’t like monochromatic collections but I think this one has a classic flavour so it makes up for the lack of colour.
Hot or Not? Classic or Boring? Striking or washed-out? What do u guys think?
