It comes as no surprise as Agbani Darego, a former world beauty queen and international super model has been headlined as the host of the 2013 Port Harcourt International Fashion Week tagged, Native & Vogue. Agbani won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria pageant and Miss World pageant respectively in 2001. She said her nomination as the hostess of the maiden edition of the Port Harcourt International Fashion Week was a privilege and an honour. “It was on the platform of Rivers State that I came to win the MBGN title and thereafter the Miss World pageant in 2001. So, an initiative of the state government that seeks to promote, encourage young and aspiring designers and models into the professional world is one that I would gladly support and, in fact, I see it as an honour to have been considered for the role,” she said.

It would also be a wonderful opportunity for upcoming designers to undergo tutelage under the mentorship of professionals. Young designers would showcase their works in a competition that would have the winner go home with a cash prize of N500, 000 and an all-expenses paid six months scholarship to the reputable Capecon Fashion School, South Africa.
