As part of the prize for the winner of Face of Sleek Nigeria 2009, Sleek is sponsoring two of their best models Makida Moka & Ujunwa Nwobodoh to the upcoming Fashion Diversity 2010 scheduled to take place during London Fashion Week.
Makida Moka is the Face of Sleek Nigeria 2009 and current brand ambassador. A model on the rise, she is well versed in public speaking and appearances having represented Sleek at many events. Ujunwa Nwobodoh is a Sleek Super Model, uniquely gifted in her chosen field and renowned for her professionalism. She rules on the catwalk and has worked with top fashion designers and labels; well versed in haute couture and commercial modeling, she has featured on the covers and pages of various magazines. Both Makida & Ujunwa are managed by Sleek Models part of the Sleek Nigeria Group comprising Sleek Make-up, Sleek Hair, Sleek Skincare and Sleek Models.
Makida and Ujunwa will be carrying the baton for Nigerian- based models this year as most of their counterparts reside in the UK and other western countries. Having modeled designs on the catwalk for over 100 fashion designers between them and posed for numerous publications, their participation in London Fashion Week is the next level. Here's hoping that they are able to bring their considerable experience to the stage at the Fashion Diversity event during London Fashion Week and in turn, do both Sleek and Nigeria proud.
Fashion Diversity was established in September 2008 in answer to the call for diversity on the catwalks at London Fashion Week and created to support London's fashion designers and models by raising their profile. Designers showcasing their designs this year includes Toyosi Mobereola – a Nigerian export although, this won't be the 1st time a Nigerian showcases at the Fashion Diversity event – world renowned Deola Sagoe showcased spectacular designs at the first ever Fashion Diversity event during London Fashion Week in September 2008.
The decision to include Sleek Nigeria's Makida Moka & Ujunwa Nwobodoh in this year's event is informed by the relationship with the founders of Mahogany Model Management
