Angolan Model Maria Borges On Shopping & Style

While we’re getting ready for Africa’s top Fashion Weeks,  one famous model from the continent who’s walked the ramps for the world’s top designers, Mariah Borges has been dishing on her personal style, shopping habits and the things she’d like to have stolen fro the SPring/Summer’16 showcases she starred in.

Talking to Vogue in a recent Q&A, the Angolan beauty said of her taste;

“I would say [my style] is about being simply fresh and cool.”

On where she shops for said ‘cool’ and ‘simple’ styles, the 22-year-old said;

“I don’t have a preference about stores. When I like something, I buy it. It doesn’t matter which store or brand or how much it costs. That said, I really love vintage stores or going to pop-ups.”

Lastly, the beauty told Vogue that following her appearance on most of the runways at last month’s international Fashion Weeks, all she really wants from the runway is, well – she;

“…Can’t choose just one thing!”

Same here Mariah Borges, same here – though we’d happily shop style from your personal wardrobe while we wait for more things to tempt us from Africa’s upcoming Fashion Weeks.
