Prints and The Revolution-Malick Sidibe & Andreas Kokkino

Fashion editor Andrea Kokkino recent had the pleasure of going to West Africa (Mali), to collaborate on a photo shoot with one of the dopest Photographer out of West African; Mailan Photographer Malick Sidibe. The shoot was featured in NY Times Magazine's Sunday style section. The Concept of the shoot was to dress the models in a mix of the printed and often African-inspired clothes from the spring collections. But the best part of the shoot was the fact they actually used Sidibe's extended family for the shoot. This included 17 of his sons and daughters.
