It is a wrap with the 2010 Fall Fashion Week in New York City! But we are still recapping some of the highlights!

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the 2010 winner of Face of Africa model, Lukundo of Zambia last week in New York City during Fashion Week! And what a doll she is! Fresh off the runway under the Bryant Park tents, Lukundo was still ecstatic and bubbling with energy…a true supermodel in the making!

I caught up with her backstage right after the ARISE African Collective Part III showing at the tent called “The Tent“, the largest space at Bryant Park (the previous showings have been at the tent called “The Promenade” which is the second largest. “The Salon” is the smallest tent.) There you have it, New York City Fashion Week’s inner sanctum: the Bryant Park tents!….

Ok, I digress! Since her win in Lagos, Nigeria, a week earlier, Lukundo jetted to New York City to participate in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010 Arise show. She walked for Tanzanian-born Loin Cloth & Ashes designer, Anisa Mpungwe

That grey coat is straight BANANAS!

She told me that she was loving her experience as the new Face of Africa…who wouldn’t?!? And she said “it doesn’t get any better than this!” Check her out having lunch the supermodel Iman & friends!

Interview with Arise Magazine’s Editor Helen Jennings

We wish her the absolute best in her modeling career! Great gal, awesome energy, striking features & height for days! *just wished someone could have given her some Visine for the redness in her eyes. Hard work & long hours that industry!*…but nonetheless, Lukundo is still uber fab!

Do you think that Lukundo will make it big IMAN-esque style or….? Holla back & drop your comments below!

Muah & muchas gracias amigos!
