    I am thoroughly confused as to why a significant portion of Nigerian poster-ads do not look like they target the population.

    Nigeria is not yet so diverse as to explain as to why posters use caucasian models.
    Is this an inferiority complex of believing that more people would take notice if it were a caucasian model OR is this action simply feeding into the dodgy view that white skin sells. I have nothing against any persons or models of other races/ethnicities btw.

    Just plain ridiculous, in my view.

    @Rolex, I don’t think it is because white skin sells. If you don’t have anything again skin color, why then did U bother commenting? Do you know if she is one of the models and if her pose was the best for the poster? Why did you not complain about the name Mode Demarrage since it is French? You should have said they should say Fashion ti de, or translated it to Igbo or your language perhaps. Rolex, Packaging attracts but content commits and this poster fortunately speaks both! please focus on the content and appreciate not criticize unless you have done something better.
    @Kimberly, I hear the first show rocked and the second promises to be better.

    There are at least 5o million women in Nigeria. The show is in Nigeria. The attendees are Nigerian. Whats wrong with using a nigerian model? The pretentiousness of our society never ceases to amaze me.

    Why must ticket be free? Make free thing no kill una for Nigeria. For sndra and the other one, if you have a problem with the white girl being the cover for the poster, close your eyes and don’t look at it. why did you even comment sef? as for the one who thinks it is ridiculous to shop in London, na poor man dey say beer dey bitter. mshwwwww

    the issue of whether its a nigerian or not in all fairness is not necessary.people should not be biased and voice out thoughtless words…
    1st of all-A white girl is on the cover, you wear marc jacobs, atmosphere,gucci and lets not go too far h/m. y dnt u just tie iro and buba everywhere u go or wear kente as cloth.Be Logical and not bitter that you can’t appreciate what you can’t achieve(obviously).
    2ndly-She is white, so wat???the show is about talented designers in Nigeria and right now i believe we have white people living amongst us except ure far from civilization my dear susan.
    3rdly-Focus on the show and what it’s selling, if one of the designer’s were cast would you be stupid enough to say because she is not 100% african she shouldn’t participate?
    And lastly, correct me if am wrong, travelling out is no more an issue of harvesting to cultivate i believe right now it can be done faster…so instead of lashing at the poor lady who wants to shop for the event…dig harder and find ur gold so u’d attend d show…it’s just a freaking fashion show!!!

    to the lady who wants free ticket…buhahahahahahahahahaahahaaa….na edegbe line the artists go enter ba?or na shelter then wan perform?abi d designer’s go showcase nylon as ankara?which one…..
