Lekki Astoria Events Centre, Lagos welcomed models from African countries like Ghana, Togo, Coté D’Ivoire, Benin, Cameroon, Mali and of course, Nigeria on the 25th of June, 2017 for the African Models Exhibition organized by the Afrik Diary.

The organization is all about showcasing beauty, culture, fashion and everything African creativity related.
The exhibition was set to acknowledge the beauty of the African culture and also give a platform to new modelling acts to become global brand ambassadors. Prior to D-day, some models and designers had a good time getting together at the Citilodge Hotel pool and relaxing after a long journey to Lagos.

The venue had lots of fashion lovers and enthusiasts as well as spectacular fashion pieces for exhibition. The models took turns to walk on the runway in pieces by African designers- F2K (Togo), Experienza (Cameroon), VUVU (Cameroon), DOF (Nigeria), Mia by Naomi (Nigeria), Bettos Terrain (Nigeria), Avant Garde (Nigeria) and Brutes Clothing (Nigeria).
