Fashion Forward Seminar – Black Models Matter

The modeling industry is getting crowded with up and coming models, aspiring models, regular models, established models, popular models, and world-class models. As a model, walking the walk can be an issue for some, talking the talk for some, and probably model conducts and traits can be the issue for others. Models, it’s time to mark your calendars for the “must-not-miss” modeling seminar organised by the (FCDA) Fashion for Change and Development in Africa in conjuction with (IBCNL) International Business Consortium Nigeria Limited, and JACOBS.
