Debonair Afrik, a Ghanaian-based digital media magazine has released its new cover after putting it on hold for the last two years due to the pandemic. The publication launched its latest issue featuring the popular Guinean model, Sira Kante.
The publication establishes that diversity and inclusivity are two words that run deep through the fashion industry. The projection of the standard of beauty to be Eurocentric has been deeply rooted, from beauty brands not making foundation shades suitable for people with darker skin tone, to light skin models being mainly featured on runways and on covers, until quite recently. Even though there is yet more way to go, the industry’s committed effort to ensure increased representation of various races in the fashion industry is an improvement of the situation.
Making a break in the modeling industry is no easy task and it is even a more difficult task to do as a person of black descent. But major strides to break this status quo have been made, and are being made, and one such person striding the runways in elegance to break this status quo is the model and founder of a skincare brand, Sira Kante.
