Nigerians have been making remarkable strides in the global fashion scene both as models and designers and 16-year-old female model Janet Jumbo is no exception as she has become the first Nigerian to walk for renowned high fashion brand Louis Vuitton.

The budding model hails from Rivers state Nigeria and was born and brought up in Lagos state.
She took to social media to share exclusive photos from the show and thanked everyone that made it possible for her to achieve the milestone.
She said, “LOUIS VUITTON EXCLUSIVE Can’t believe I’m the first Nigerian model to walk for (@louisvuitton).
“I’m so grateful to everyone that made this happened (@raw_models) (@ashleybrokaw) (@nicolasghesquiere) (@imgmodels) I’m the happiest girl on the planet right now,” Jumbo said.

The Lagos-born was recruited on her way from church when a scout spotted her walking. She was then signed to Raw Models.

Celebrating the feat, Raw Models shared her story on their official Instagram page. They wrote, “History has been made again.
