Fashions latest up-and-comer Northamptonian and Zimbabwe-born Nyasha Matonhodze has recently been announced as the new face of Louis Vuitton's A/W11 Campaign. I first noticed her when she walked in Topshop's Unique runway show and it was at that moment I knew this girl was made for something bigger. Her look is fresh, unique and transcends many seasons in fashion with her long neck and lips being two of her best features along with the fact that she boasts an amazing 5'11 inch height; you could almost say she's like the young and modern Naomi Campbell and all the big industry names just want a piece of her.
Nyasha's career really kicked-off when she won the Elite Model Look in 2009. She has since gone on to work with the likes of Louise Gray, Clements Ribeiro, Jonathan Saunders during London Fashion Week SS11 as-well-as Loewe, Emanuel Ungaro, Louis Vuitton, Calla and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac in Paris. She is currently being represented by Elite Model Management in London and I am rooting for her all the way not only because I carry Zimbabwean roots myself, but because I see a talented young girl who holds so much beauty and potential.
Nyasha features in:
