Fashion has a new queen! 18-year-old Imade Ogbewi has been announced winner at the 2011 Nigeria’s Next Super Model which took place, on Sunday, 20 November. The event held at the Grand Ball Room of the Oriental Hotel and was filled to capacity with the industry’s finest.
“I never believed I could come this far…”
Models, designers and fashion heads come out to watch the contestants strut their stuff on the runway. Miss Ogbewi went home with a brand new Geely car, a return ticket to London courtesy Virgin Atlantic, and also won a trip to Dubai, plus four days stay at the Hilton hotel, thanks to Studio 24.
Maybline UK chose the girls in the final five to represent the brand and they all wore couture designs by House of Farrah.
“I never believed I could come this far, I’m so overwhelmed with joy,” Ms. Ogbewi, who was one of the models at the just concluded Africa Fashion Week, said. “I want to thank Mrs Joan Okorodudu, and my family for the support they’ve given me.”
