Model Moment: Alek Wek

She is fierce and her features are magnetic and unforgettable with her signature TWA. Alek Wek was discovered in London in 1995 after fleeing her birthplace of Sudan in 1991 as civil war erupted. She has been modeling since the age of eighteen and is still as fierce as when she first started. She has modeled and has done campaigns with Issay Miyake, Moschino, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Ann Taylor, Ermanno Scervino, Saks Fifth Avenue, Victoria Secret, Nars and Clinique to name a few.
She is a humanitarian, fashion designer in her own right with her collection of luxury bags and an inspiration to all people. You can check out her designers bags, Wek1933 here.
