From Aina Fadina, a Nigerian born/American raised fashion model comes “I of Africa” — a web series celebrating all things African from a global perspective. So far, she’s produced two seasons of one-on-one interviews with entrepreneurial creatives.
She says the series celebrates trailblazing individuals by focusing on inspirational, global African stories. “I cover topics that influence the image of what African is, ‘African beauty,’ what African cultures are, influences the continent has on the world from a global perspective, and the evolution of these things.”
Fadina — who has worked with luxury labels including Oscar De La Renta and Alexander McQueen, as well as fashion changemakers Duro Olowu and Mimi Plange — is a force du jour for this storytelling outlet. Juggling the many hats of financier, host and producer, she says the ultimate goal is to one day be picked up for TV. She is currently in the process of securing partners and sponsorship to begin filming Season Three.
