Supermodel Oluchi Orlandi can easily be described as the model that opened the fashion world to Africa. Oluchi covers the October/November 2014 issue of Forbes Woman Africa and the magazine rightly tags her “The Supermodel Taking African Fashion to the World”.
We shared the cover picture a few days ago (Read it up here) and now BN has got more inside pages to share with our readers, as well as a video interview of Oluchi as she chats with Forbes Africa.
For the editorial spread Oluchi wears lovely pieces from Nigerian brands like Deola Sagoe, Mai Atafo, Ituen Basi, Re Bahia and more.
Oluchi talks to Forbes Africa about what it takes to be much more than a supermodel. From the streets of Lagos, playing ping- pong with boys as a child, to the cut-throat world of fashion in New York, this six-foot supermodel-entrepreneur has come a long way – and has returned on a mission to give back to the industry she got so much from.
