Re-Look: Model Nyane Lebajoa
We first met the very talented Nyane, back in 2009 when she was just turned 16. We knew instantly that she was one to watch out for. Being a petit model, the industry tends to stay away from girls less than 5'7 but we just loved Nyane's perfectly shaped bone structure in her face and her proportions. Being a petit model, Nyane shot tall...not just that, but we couldn't get enough of her striking beauty.
Now 2 years later, we were right, Nyane's modelling career has sky rocketed with her being agency represented, and featuring on the front cover of many, many magazines all over the world!
Nyane not only lives fashion she breathes it. Studying textiles in University, she not only models clothing, but she makes the clothes she wears as well. She understands fashion, and she understands garment construction which, in this industry, to understand the dynamics of clothing gives you an edge over the competition.
Embracing her African roots, Nyane both embraces her culture which shines effortlessly through in some of the concept shoots she has appeared in. She is highly diverse in every aspect she models in and out shines (in our eyes) other models she us up against.
As a brand, we are so proud to have worked with Nyane before the success of her career kicked off. We have always backed her as a model and are just so glad to see how far she has to come!
We predict even bigger things for Nyane....Vogue UK take notice...petit models are biting back with a vengeance!
