Katoucha Niane was one of the first well known African women to make it big in the modeling industry. But today her life took a tragic turn as she was found dead and pulled from the Seine River in Paris. Katoucha went by her first name in the fashion business and is best know for walking for Yves Saint Laurent. Katoucha was very vocal when it came to womens issues and spoke often about her experiences with FGM. Her book, “Katoucha, In My Flesh,” was published last year and dealt with her FGM experiences at age 9.  Before her death Katoucha had finished her first acting role but the film has not yet been release.

We will publish more details on the tragic  loss as they become available.
