In May 2017, Joan Okorodudu and Amina Mohamed – United Nations Deputy Secretary-General – were the only two Nigerian women given prestigious prizes by New African Woman Magazine in Dakar, Senegal. Joan was awarded the ‘The New African Woman in Arts & Culture’ for her service in raising the profile of African models and fashion on the continet while Mrs. Mohammed was awarded the ‘The New African Woman in Politics’.
Joan Okorodudu was listed also on New African Woman as NEW AFRICAN WOMAN MAGAZINE’S GROUNDBREAKING WOMEN CHANGING THE STATUS QUO.
Joan Okorodudu’s journey in Fashion dated as far back as 2007 when she created the Nigeria’s Next Super Model competition in search of Nigerian modelling talents with potentials to match up with the global market. In the initial stage, the winner would be promised a contract with an international modelling agency but wouldn’t get any response from the agencies after the event. This became an issue stressing the growth of her winners and other selected girls and this led to the establishment of ISIS Modeling Agency. Painstakinly growning the agency which today boasts some of the most sought-after faces in the African modelling business. Her 2008 debut as a modelling agent didn’t go unnoticed; flying ten of her models into South Africa for castings at the Johannesburg Fashion Week, she has not looked back since then. Today, her models are working on the world stage, modelling for big names like Gucci and Prada. In an interview with Allure Vanguard Magazine, she shares her ten-year journey with NNSM and adds her voice to the call for a fashion council in Nigeria.
Well so today, Joan is going to catch all the fun she can get to mark her birthday and we wish her more years of impact and accomplishments.
