Four days to the kick off of the much publicised Native and Vogue Port Harcourt International Fashion Week, excitement greets the Nigerian fashion industry as British modelling sensation, Rob Evans, weekend, confirmed he was participating in the fashion festival.
The 26-year-old well sought-after model, by designers and photographers, have plied his trade from Paris to New York and has adorned works of great brands such as Givenchy and Trussardi boosting his profile with an impressive collection of magazine editorial works.
The boxer turned model, who stands at an enviable height of 6ft 3′, will lead the pack of international models expected to grace the Native and Vogue runway when the curtain raises on Friday at the Garden City, Port Harcourt.
Others expected at the show are Tanzanian born supermodel, Millen Magaese; Devyn Abdullah, winner of FACE and brand ambassador for Ultra and Nigerian born Adeola Ariyo who made history as the first African Brand Ambassador for Cosmetic giant, Elizabeth Arden.
They will be joined by other internationals and 80 home based models who will all bring their ‘A’ game to the show.
Organised by the Rivers State government in partnership with Neo Mantra, Allure and Bunor Creazioni, the annual event which enters its second season will create a platform for interactions for both local and international models as well as create an international platform for local models to express themselves and explore the possibilities that the Rivers State government is exploring with such platforms.
