Sayra Jatto is a model’s model

Signed to Few Models, Sayra Jatto has come from relative obscurity to become one of the few high profile working Nigerian models from Northern Nigeria today. She has fronted campaigns, walked at the country’s major fashion shows, and worked with magazines like Mania and This Day Style. And she does all this with a preternatural sense of self and a humility that disarms everyone she works with it. This Friday, Miss Jatto is our inspiration.

We’ve scoured through her social media and found our favorite images of her on and off the runway. Take a look at Sayra Jatto and see what we see.
