SOCIAL Star Elsa Majimbo has secured another “bag”, this time with top Italian brand Valentino.
Valentino announced on Twitter that they were to collaborate on a ‘special project’ with Majimbo and that the details on the collection would be released soon.
“Valentino is proud to announce a special project with writer, actor and comedian Elsa Majimbo (@ElsaAngel19), culminating into a soon-to-be-released collaboration,” the fashion house announced on its social pages.
The 19 year-old comedian took to her own social pages to announce the news.
“I am SO proud and excited to announce my entry into high fashion with an upcoming collaboration with @maisonvalentino!!!!! my team has worked so hard on this and I can’t wait to share more details!”, she wrote.
The collaboration announcement came after Majimbo revealed her first ever cover for the March ‘Young Hollywood’ issue of American magazine Teen Vogue, where she posed wearing a print trench coat, striking eye makeup and her signature cornrows in front of a green psychedelic background.
After Valentino’s announcement, Majimbo posted her own tweet writing: “On Tuesday I was wearing Valentino on the cover of Teen Vogue. On Friday I announced I am working with Valentino. That is how we do baby.”
Elsa Majimbo’s popularity has continued to soar since she went viral, having been featured on Forbes, Netflix, CNN, and receiving merchandise from Rihanna’s (now defunct) Fenty luxury brand and Beyonce’s Ivy Park athleisure collection.
