Back to the Future - Malaika Firth

Prada unveils its Fall/Winter 2013 campaign today featuring a magnificent cast of promising newcomers, established faces, and iconic supers. Photographer Steven Meisel captures the essence of Prada with a simple paired back grey background, wooden floors, and steel legged chairs contrasting with the rich opulence of the Italian label's Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Casting director Ashley Brokaw takes a leap of faith with red hot newcomers Malaika Firth, Kristine Frøset, Amanda Murphy, and Sophia Ahrens who are joined by comeback kid Catherine McNeil, Meisel favourite Fei Fei Sun, and the elusive Freja Beha Erichsen. Rounding out the cast are industry veterans Christy Turlington, Rachel Williams, Cameron Russell, and the enigmatic French model-turned-music producer Caroline de Maigret.

Inoubliable Model Army is particularly excited about the debut appearance of Kenyan British newcomer Malaika Firth, who first popped up on IMA's radar over a year ago. Firth owes her exotic hard to place looks to a unique blend of Kenyan, Ugandan, Seychellois, Swiss and British heritage, and was brought to Premier Model Management's attention thanks to Firth's mother who called the agency after having viewed the agency's "The Model Agency" television series. Firth's appearance in Prada's Fall/Winter 2013 campaign marks the first time a black model has been featured in a Prada campaign line-up since Naomi Campbell's Fall/Winter 1994 appearance.
