This year’s annual Africa Fashion Week London is back again this august and they are on the lookout for models, who are based in the UK and Europe, to take part in the show.

The open casting call is open to both men and women who are over 18. If you are interested, but are not sure that you have the skills, don’t worry, as if you are chosen, you will be mentored and supported through the process. All they ask is that you are prepared to walk over and over again, and most importantly, do not be shy!

  1. Hi Joy,
    Thanks for your lovely features last week.
    It was good reading. I hope to see you again soon.

    Just wondered if you know any social media media managers to manage our platforms two days per week.?
