Cherifa Naffeti is our new Cover Model. Before you jump to the video interview and to the photo gallery, allow me to introduce her to the readers of Adversus. Let’s start by saying that working with Cherifa was like shooting in the middle of a storm. Cherifa is like a tornado, she laughs, she talks, she tells stories and has strong opinions on everything and everybody. And she is not afraid to express them.
Cherifa is represented in Milano, where we shot and filmed her, by Major Model Management http://www.majormodels.it/ and during the shoot she was wearing some beautiful lingerie outfits from Christies.
We organized the cover model shoot with Cherifa in Milan, where she is currently based. Cherifa is 100% Tunisian, a really beautiful model, very tall, and – personal opinion of course – very much in line with the model look we saw on the catwalks in Milan and in Paris (yes, also models have their trends).

Milano is beautiful, I love to work in Milano, even if in Milano they have mostly fashion weeks and fashion magazines, and not so many commercial jobs.
