70 MODELS SELECTED TO WALK THE AFRICAN FASHION WEEK NIGERIA 2017 RUNWAY

 

    Hundreds of aspiring models gathered at the venue of the casting which lasted the entire day for screening by the AFWN casting team which had on board, multiple award winning model talent scout and makeup artist, Bayo Hasstrup, AFWN Chief Operating Officer, Aiki Odiawa, Eke EKE Group Merchandising Officer Daviva, Mr Jide Adedeji the head stylist, Mr Zuby Enoma AFWN hair director and Mr Barrectt Akpokabayen the official photographer.  The talented team went through several screening sessions to reach the final 70 models who will walk the AFWN runway in June. 



       The model casting is part of build up towards the AFWN 2017 that will be held on the  3rd & 4th June 2017 at the National Arts Theatre, Lagos. The organizers had two iconic pre -event shows in April: The first held at the National Theater and the second at the Tinubu Square, Lagos. The iconic shows held at historic venues in order to blend the creativity of designers with the richness of our cultural heritage of Lagos and Africa.



The Founder of Africa Fashion Week, Ronke Ademiluyi said she was overwhelmed by the large turn out of models who aspire to join the fashion week every year. “The platform keeps growing every year with remarkable shows. We are not going to relent. That is why government and multinationals should support us. AFWN is more than entertainment. We add economic value to African designers on our platform with our creativity every year.” she says.
