Arise Magazine Launches - Naomi, Liya and Alek Cover Premiere Issue
The new monthly magazine, published by Nigerian newspaper ThisDay, will be launched this Friday alongside a African Fashion Collective Show at Bryant Park at New York Fashion Week.
Says ThisDay CEO Nduka Obaigbena,“I think it’s about an opportunity.…Africa has been under-reported and under-recognized. Meanwhile, so many big talents have African origins. We think it’s time Africa gets the rightful recognition in the global cultural landscape, and its fashion contribution is one of them.”
According to WWD, the magazine "is dedicated to African accomplishments in business, politics, fashion, music and overall culture" and will be sold in cities such as New York, Paris and London.
