Now, let’s point out that Elizabeth is just 5ft 8inches. In the modeling industry that height rarely makes it through the struggle. One notable exception is Kate Moss, who is 5’7, was discovered at 14, worked for major brands like Louis Vuitton, Vogue, and Alexander McQueen, and grew into a cultural icon.
For Elizabeth, the journey to her big break started last year at the modeling school run by FEW Model Management. Since it’s launch in 2014, the scouting agency, FEW has had tremendous impact in Nigeria’s modeling industry through its focus on discovering and training models to world class standard.
In just 2 months, Elizabeth has walked exclusively for three major luxury brands; Fendi, Saint Laurent, and Mui Mui, which showed at New York and Paris respectively, and got signed to IMG Worldwide -an agency based in NYC, London, Paris, Sydney and Milan.
Earlier this month, she also got signed to Boss Models in Cape Town, and just last week, Models.com named her as one of the top new comers of the season.
With Nigerian models being described as the “Industry’s next wave” by vogue.com, Elizabeth can expect that this is only the beginning of her reign.
After her last show, rounding off Paris Fashion Week, she instagrammed a photo with the caption:
“It’s the end of fashion week!! If this wasn’t God then I don’t know what else you can call it. Thank you @miumiu @bitton for having me on this amazing show in such gorgeous outfit . Thank you @imgmodels @fewmodels.”
