Beautiful Peace 

"Human Evolution" Mengly Hernandez Photo By Delphine Diaw diallo The three panels of the piece feature model Mengly Hernandez in shifting patterns of face paint — “Yoruba ‘body painting,’ Chinese ‘yin-yang,’ and Japanese ‘geisha.’” Diallo explained to us, “The concept behind the tryptic was to show the conscious history of a human being through ritual experience (body painting). The relationship between the different cultures & traditions, and their fusion, projects an idea and vision for a new millennium. It’s time for us to be more reactive and engage ourselves to propose an alternative beauty in fashion. We won’t just fight for having more black people in the fashion industry but fight for opening our culture to others and realize they all need each other.”
