Ugandan model Kiara Kabukuru in an editorial for Elle (US) in June 1994 titled ‘Field Of Dreams’ and photographed by Gilles Bensimon in Marrakech, Morocco.

This is one of my most favourite fashion editorials as rarely do we see these carefree ‘shoots involving dark-skinned black women, and whenever Western magazines shoot in foreign locations involving local subjects in the ‘shoot, they are often merely used as agent-less props which is not the case in this spread.

There’s also the inclusion of Africans of different hues in an African location, which I love. 

However, I’m yet to discover the name of Kabukuru’s photoshoot partner.
