While the annual Lagos Fashion Calendar is heralded by announcement of the dates for the African Fashion Week Nigeria annual showcase, fashion week officially begins with the Elite Model Look Nigeria competition. In it’s 7th year, the Elohor Aisien run Nigerian franchise of the insanely popular modelling competition has become the official kickstarter of the Summer season cycle, picking up after Africa Fashion Week Nigeria ends the fall cycle and gathering steam till the Lagos Fashion and Design Week.
Through E.L.M.N’s social media channels, it has announced that open castings for this year’s competition will begin on the 30th of July 2016, approximately 60 days from now.
This would be the perfect time to audition for Elite Model Look Nigeria.
Never has there been as much media attention on the Nigerian modelling industry and finding new talent from the country. The winners of the competition in 2014, Mayowa Nicholas and Victor Ndigwe went on to sign with international modelling agencies while booking some of the most coveted runway and editorial gigs of the season, drawing the attention of Vogue itself.
The 2015 winners haven’t done too bad for themselves either, Funmi Akinjiola just signed with Fusion Models Capetown and Damilola was the face of the 2015 Lagos Fashion and Design Week campaign.
