Home away from home. She was in Ghana a while back where she met President Akufo-Addo and the first lady. She visited the West African country where she met her patrilineal relatives. She collaborated and directed a Burberry project which saw its first-ever version of Kaba and Slit – a popular Ghanaian traditional dressing. She was photographed with her family, all wearing the custom made dresses.
In an Instagram post by the model, she said:
“The world knowing nothing about the magic that Ghana is, the beauty and chaos.
Where my father was born, the other half of my British blood, Accra. Home away from home with the church and the swing and grandma and grandad, aunties, Kente cloth, fufu and buckets for washing. Memories, so many memories of 6 hour journeys to visit my other half. …”
