Elegantly adorned in the latest designs from Africa’s top established and emerging designers, the flawless faces and beautiful bodies set to grace the MBFWAfrica runway have been sourced from all over the continent and the world – including South Africa, Barbados, Nigeria, Rwanda, Angola, Mozambique, Uganda, Cameroon, the United States, Haiti, South Sudan, Australia, Nigeria, Holland, China, and Moldova.
Leading models set to grace the catwalk include New York Fashion Week regular, Ania Charlot from the USA; Nigeria’s Next Supermodel 2007 runner-up, Bunmi Ademokoya, who recently walked at New York and Berlin Fashion Weeks; Miss Cameroon 2013, Valérie Ayena; Adua Mornyang from Australia, who is a favourite of top Parisian designers such as Kenzo; Nigeria’s Next Supermodels 2011 and 2013, Favour Lucky and Imade Ogbewi; American Ero Esoimeme, fresh from London Fashion Week; and the face of Adidas’s latest campaign, Sanele Xaba from South Africa.
Fresh faces to be on the lookout for are Congolese beauty, Gaelle Kibikonda; ELITE Model Look South Africa 2013 finalists, Matachley Salmon and Bianca Raubenheimer; and male models, Arshad Dean, Benito van Leeuwen, Thomas Zalousmis, Marcus Karstens, and NK Mjweni.
“The model line-up for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2014 celebrates Africa’s rich history whilst also reflecting the global relevance of the continent as the cosmopolitan melting pot that it has become since the first MBFWAfrica five years ago,” adds Sizwe Nzimande, spokesperson of MBFWAfrica organisers African Fashion International (AFI).
These and other exceptional models will walk the runway in the latest collections from over 30 of Africa’s foremost established and emerging designers – including David Tlale, LaurenceAirline, MaXhosa by Laduma, Mai Atafo and Marianne Fassler – in 16 shows over four days at MBFWAfrica 2014, Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, 29 October-1 November.#
