Since last year, 19-year-old Kenyan actress, Elsa Majimbo, has gone from dating world-famous celebrities to making huge business deals. On Sunday, Twitter went into a storm after Kenyans learned that Elsa had landed a collaboration with Italian fashion mogul, Maison Valentino.
Kenyan actress Elsa Majimbo (19), continues her meteoric rise in the arts and culture world in a big way. The internet sensation has revealed that she is collaborating with Italian fashion giant, Maison Valentino, to represent the first edition of her first book. « I’m finally sharing my collaboration with Maison Valentino! I have teamed up with them to present the first edition of my first book, ‘The Alphabet for Kids and Adults’. This adorable book for children and adults was created and written by Mokheirs and myself, and presented by the House, » said Elsa.
« For her first foray into the world of luxury, Elsa knows exactly how she wants to look. Under soft light and with the wind in her hair, Elsa reveals ‘The Alphabet for Children and Adults’, her very first book, produced in collaboration with Maison, » wrote Maison in a post on Twitter. Elsa Majimbo, for her part, said the campaign was her entry into the world of high-end fashion.
In a promotional video, the teenager says her book will feature the Valentino logo and her name. « … I’m going to talk about my collaboration with Valentino next. I’m going to talk about the fact that it’s not a clothing collaboration like everyone expects, it’s a children’s book …. « I will then look at the camera and say, ‘The Alphabet for Kids and Adults’, a collaboration of Valentino and me … Then I will bring up the Valentino logo and my name, » she says.
The book collaboration is not the first between Elsa and Valentino. Previously, Majimbo signed a deal with Valentino that saw her wearing the fashion line on the cover of Teen Vogue on February 19. « On Tuesday, I wore Valentino on the cover of Teen Vogue. On Friday, I announced that I was working with Valentino. That’s how we do it, » said the actress.
It’s worth noting that late last year, Majimbo also inked a deal with Rihanna’s Fenty, an incredible piece of news she shared via her social media channels. With the way things are going for Majimbo, it is safe to say that she is no longer a star in the making, but is already a star.
