On her way back from church in Lagos and most likely not thinking about Louis Vuitton at the time, 16-year-old Janet Jumbo who hails from Rivers State was reportedly scouted by Mr Raphael of RAW Model Management Nigeria.
Now also signed to IMG Models Worldwide and Francina Models Spain, Janet Jumbo is already changing the records. She officially made history as the first Nigerian to ever walk for Louis Vuitton Exclusive at the just concluded Paris Fashion Week.
Janet took to her Instagram page to share her joy and excitement while thanking everyone who made this phase of her life happen.
