We know at FashionGHANA that we could be heading for trouble writing this article, and there probably will be some old aged models running shows, and photographers in Africa who would like to disagree with the thought of this young lady as Africa’s best model. But we believe in the future, concise judgement and the possibilities that might derive from it.
So, with the experience of the 6/7 years I worked as a model scout I am going to say Favour Lucky has to be one of Africa’s best fashion models.
About half a year ago, a beautiful young lady, as young as 14 years old, won Nigeria’s Next Super Model (Read Here). It holds as the most popular model competition in Africa. and after seeing the images and footage, the organizer Joan (CEO of Isis Models) has received alot of credit for discovering a good model based upon her age, physique and beauty.
Some people have been a bit reserved because you can only really judge the potential of a model once they have developed a portfolio and executed a number of outfits on a runway. The latter was seen when she blew the crowd away at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (See Pics) a month and a few weeks ago. Journalists that attended MBFW spoke enthusiastically about her when giving us a review of the shows.
Now there are more and more modelling images and lookbooks featuring Favour popping up on blogs there is no denying Isis Models has a great diamond on their hands. What makes Favour Lucky the best African model is that, not only does she possess amazing features, but those that also reflect African beauty, with princess like eyes, great skin tone and complexion, and beautiful full lips. And over all, she has international appeal.
Her physical structure is intact, and most of all she has so much future ahead of her at the age of 15. With very focused management, a few more amazing editorials, and the rise of African fashion, we can honestly say we have a star on our hands.
FashionGHANA.com wishes her the very best and will keep you up to date on Favour Lucky’s progress.
