Monday Muse: Adwoa Aboah
Our Monday Muse of the week is model, west Londoner and overall bad-ass babe Adwoa Aboah
. We've had our eye on her on Instagram for a while (aka stalking her feed) and its been great seeing her star rise within the industry. With over 140k followers on IG, she shares pictures of the day to day life of a (very) in demand model including backstage snaps and shots of her equally cool friends. Also, her boyfriend is photographer
, so they're pretty much the ultimate power couple.
She's been crazy busy this fashion month having just recently walked for Dior Fall17 in the most amazing blue dress (just one of the gorgeous pieces in the collection, see picture below!).
We very inspired by her work off the catwalk too, being a spokesperson for mental illness within the fashion and modelling community Adwoa has been very vocal about her own struggles with depression and addiction. She spoke about her experiences in an interview
with Vogue last year and then went all our and founded Gurls Talk
in 2015, an empowering platform, space and community for women and girls to share issues and subjects important to them.
As if that wasn't enough to make her one of BOAW's muses, she has the most amazing sense of style, being a pro at mixing prints, colours and always adding her own unique touch of "cool" to every outfit she puts together. She goes from tough girl with a touch of punk to feminine feline in a blink of an eye and she looks amazing in both. She absolutely rocks her buzz cut hair and her skin (and freckles!) are flawless.
