Top model, a refugee dream

For their catwalk shows, many luxury brands recruit South Sudanese models from the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya. A dream come true for some that ends as a nightmare for others. After modelling for high-end magazines or catwalks, a certain number face a return to poverty and misery.
Report by Lucile Chaussoy, Kilian Le Bouquin and Marion Cantor for "Envoyé Spécial", the France 2 magazine programme.

Guests: Lucile Chaussoy, journalist for Caravelle Productions; Ekaterina Ozhiganova, president of the association Model Law.

Presented by: Dominique Laresche.
