Yesterday evening-29th of September 2013, at the Eko Hotel & Suites on Adetokunbo Ademola Street in Victoria Island Lagos, we witnessed the grand finale of the AQUAFINA sponsored ELITE Model Look Nigeria 2013.
18 year old Nneoma Anosike has emerged the winner this year. Nneoma beat 13 other finalists who all went through rigorous selection processes.
Elite, a glamorous fashion event and model competition has become a yearly staple in the Nigerian fashion industry and has been going on for six years now. It gathers the crème de le creame of Lagos fashion enthusiasts, celebrities and socialites together for an evening of entertainment, fashion and fun as young girls hoping to build a professional career in international modelling compete for a chance to represent Nigeria in the Elite Model Look international competition and win an international modelling contract with the prestigious modelling agency.
In 2007, Beth Model Management owned by ElohorAisien clinched the franchise rights to be the representative of Elite Modelling Agency and the yearly Elite Model Look Competition in Nigeria. Elite is one of the prestigious agencies in the world that does a yearly scout for models in over 50 countries with the help of 37 scouting agencies worldwide.
Elite Model Look Nigeria through Elohor, has discovered some of Nigeria’s most natural and talented models- Tracy Onyekachukwu (2008), Annette Begg (2009), Chika Emmanuella (2010), Chinwe Ejere (2011), Moyinoluwa Arowoshola and Alvin Dayaffin (2012), all of which have regularly graced catwalks, magazine editorials and advertising campaigns both within and outside the African continent.
