Isis was the daughter of the earth God Geb and the sky goddess Nut and the sister of the deities Osiris, Seth, and Nephthys. She was also a wife to Osiris and bore him a son, Horus. Whom many historians believe the story of Jesus was made up from.

Whilst finishing off the magical royal touch with African-orientated clothing and accessories. Most of the images were captured at the riverside by Ugandan photographer Pherd Suter, assembling a visual masterpiece that has served the internet with extraordinary beauty.
Before blessing you with the glorious images
Read the message couple with the images by Deriq….
“A few lucky ones of us have that one person who never lets them down. Who always comes through for them when they are down.No questions asked or judgments thrown around. They are like our guardian angels here on Earth and we understandably often think of them as “bulletproof”.
We forget they are just as human and probably going through their own issues and fighting their own battles while handling ours at the same time. I think it’s only fair that we grow to be the ones doing the saving sometimes.
You can simply give your guardian angel a call once in a while to just find out how they are really doing or how you can be of help. Not because you are in trouble and you need saving.”

It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
