Yogaleggs Featured in British Vogue
We are so pleased to have been selected to feature in British Vogue’s Wellness showcase.
The February 2022 Issue:
Of our February Issue cover, Editor-In-Chief Edward Enninful says: “Fashion Now: that’s what this month’s two covers proclaim. Their stars? Models Adut Akech, Anok Yai, Majesty Amare, Amar Akway, Janet Jumbo, Maty Fall, Nyagua Ruea, Abény Nhial and Akon Changkou: a powerful cohort of reigning and emerging superstars who have not only come to rule catwalks and dominate campaigns, but have shifted the lens through which fashion is seen the world over. They may all be global citizens these days, but every one of these brilliant models is of African descent. As is tradition, the February issue brings readers Vogue’s first distillation of the new collections, and as any fashion watcher will have seen at the season’s shows, the rise of the African model felt, at last, like a permanent revolution. No longer just one or two dark-skinned girls mingled backstage, but a host of top models took a meaningful, substantial and equal place among the most successful women working in fashion today. It means so much to me to see it. Of course, there is a question of race here. It would be inconceivable for me, as a British Ghanaian, to feel anything but personal joy at that. But the rise of African representation in modelling is not only about symbolism, nor even simple beauty standards. It is about the elevation of a continent. It is about economics, access, culture, perspective, difference and wonder. And it is here to stay.”
