Naomi Campbell models at Nigerian designer’s debut

The Lagos-born fashion designer's collection in the French capital is inspired by his childhood memories.

British supermodel Naomi Campbell closed the debut show of Nigerian designer Kenneth Ize at the Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

The Lagos-born fashion designer’s collection in the French capital is inspired by his childhood memories of going to church with his mother, the state-owned France 24 reports.

Vogue magazine reports that the sight of Campbell striding down Ize’s runway in a traditional Nigerian fabric, known as Asoke, caused a media frenzy.

The show’s organisers shared a video on Twitter of the moment:
