NYFW: See The 5 Nigerian Models Taking Over The Big Apple

These 5 models are living their best life strutting down the runways of the biggest fashion shows in the world at NYFW!

This year’s NYFW is major for Nigerians. Why? This is because NYFW is seeing new collections from rising artisanal brands; Kenneth Ize, Zashadu and Shekudo. In addition to that, we are well represented at shows as stylists, makeup artists, bloggers, and influencers from the motherland aren’t holding back. Name it and you’ll find us there!

The background story is super inspiring and all but let’s now shed light on the ladies who make it all happen – the models. Amazingly, quite a number of Nigerians, both male and female are doing it big over there!

Mayowa Nicholas

Undoubtedly, Mayowa is one of the biggest fashion model export from Nigeria. Ever since winning the Elite Model Look in 2014, she has been unstoppable working with brands like W Magazine, Mango, Dolce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein amongst many others. Currently at NYFW, she already graced the runways for Ralph Lauren and Jeremy Scott. She also just announced her being scheduled to walk at Victoria’s Secret 2018 show. Amazing right?
