Nigerian Top Rising Model, Kore Thando, Opens Up On The Recently Concluded Arise Fashion Week, Narrates His Memorable Experience, More

Post-Nigeria: How did you hear of Arise Fashion Week, and what is the Fashion Week about?

Kore Thando: The last time Arise Fashion Week held in Nigeria, was in 2012, if am not mistaking. When I heard rumors last year that the Fashion Week was coming back in 2018, I immediately went on instagram to search for their account, so I could follow up, to keep myself updated on their model casting date.

Arise Fashion Week to my knowledge, is one of the biggest fashion shows not just in Nigeria, but in Africa as a continent. The shows bring about different Fashion Designers from around the globe, to help promote the Nigerian and African Fashion business.

Post-Nigeria: Was this your first time walking in the shows?

Kore Thando: Yes! It is my first time walking in the shows.

Post-Nigeria: What Designers did you walk for?

Kore Thando: I walked for the likes of Taylor Gabriel, Kimono Collection, Tokyo James, Tzar, and Mai Atafo.

Post-Nigeria: International Supermodel, Naomi Campbell, was a guest star at the Fashion Week, how did it feel walking the runway with such a force in the international fashion industry?

Kore Thando: Naomi Campbell is a fashion queen. It was indeed a great pleasure walking on the same runway with her.

Post-Nigeria: What did you learn from being around Naomi Campbell, if any, that you believe would affect your career positively?

Kore Thando: She is a celebrity. I felt the same way any entertainment lover will feel seeing a celebrity standing or working with him/her. Sincerely, there was nothing special. If it was to be Tyson Beckford, or some other super male model, it would have been more interesting to me.

Post-Nigeria: What was your favourite part of the entire Arise Fashion Week?

Kore Thando: My favorite part of the entire Arise Fashion Week, was when we walked the final walk for Mai Atafo. The feeling was maaad!!!

Post-Nigeria: Tell us 3 interesting things that happened at the Fashion Week, that the outside world was not privy to?

Kore Thando: Three interesting things? Uhmmm, lol. I will skip that abeg.

Post-Nigeria: What did you do immediately after the Fashion Week and why?

Kore Thando: Immediately after the Fashion Week, I was really exhausted, so I travelled back to my home.

Post-Nigeria: What is next for Kore Thando, after Arise Fashion Week?

Kore Thando: The next thing for me now, is to concentrate on my next fashion show happening in May. After that only God knows what is next.

Thanks for session
