In true top model style, the models from the 2010 edition of Elite Model Look Nigeria have already featured in their first fashion photoshoot.
The spread was shot by fashion photographer – Toni Tones and features pieces from Nigerian designers Bridget Awosika and Lanre DaSilva-Ajayi as well as Ghanaian design label Christie Brown.
This shoot is special because we get to see these budding models in action and also get to view exclusive pieces from the designer’s collections. The pieces from Bridget Awosika provide an exclusive peek into her forthcoming collection – her first since her move back to Nigeria, from LDA – we see new pieces including jackets and a special independence tribute dress and from Christie Brown, we get to view pieces from the collection which she debuted at the Africa Fashion Week which took place in Johannesburg earlier in the year.
EMLN 2010 Chika Emmanuel looked fierce and ready to take on the world in her LDA jacket paired with opaque leggings. Chika is prepping for her trip to Shanghai where she will participate in the EML International competition.
