After months of anticipation and preparation, Few Model Management and IMG Models concluded their model scouting competition on September 2, 2018, at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos with Ethiopian model Dotain Asfawosen emerging as Few’s Next Face Africa 2018.
Patrons and supporters of the fashion, advertising and modelling industries gathered at the venue to watch the finale of the competition which kicked off in July 2018.
There were performances by Aramide and Skales with DJ Sose manning the wheels of steel during the course of the evening.
As part of the competition, the finalists walked the runway in pieces by Otumemine, Angella Phillips, Sokoto by Fawenzo, Samuel Noon, Style Infidel Studios and Larry O. The models looked stunning in the pieces as they strutted down the runway with hair styled by L’Oreal and makeup by Blk/Opl. However, a decision had to be made as to who would emerge the winner.
At the end of the night, after much deliberation by judges Bolajo Fawehinmi, Director of Few Model Management; Luis Domingo, Scouting and Development, IMG Models; and Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Creative Director of Orange Culture, Dotain Asfawosen was declared the winner of Few’s Next Face Africa 2018.
