ALEK WEK+GRACE BOL Viviane Sassen for Dazed

“If we are talking about celebrating women, we have to celebrate (diversity) as well’’ – says model Alek Wek, who fled her native South Sudan to spread messages of peace, positivity and progress to the rest of the world.

In a special fashion collaboration shot by Viviane Sassen, she’s joined by fellow South Sudanese Grace Bol who speaks of the injustices she witnessed there as a child. “The country is going in (the right) direction, we just have to be patient” she says. “We’ll get there.”
