At 16 most girls who want to model are spending years trying out for castings that may only land them modeling in their local mall. Very few rise to doing commercials or print work and a very select few will be gracing ink for the luxury brand Louis Vuitton. Well not this young girl,.,.
Nyasha Maronhodze started modeling just two years ago after winning the UK Elite Model Look competition in London in 2009.
She was discovered by a fashion scout in the street in her Northamptonshire hometown and invited down to London to take part in the contest.
The schoolgirl, who arrived for her first casting wearing her school uniform – experienced a meteoric rise through the echelons of the fashion industry, with an impressive debut season that saw her walking for shows including Louise Gray, Clements Ribeiro, Jonathan Saunders during London Fashion Week SS11 as well as Loewe, Emanuel Ungaro, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Louis Vuitton in Paris.
And now, the industry newcomer models couture clothes from Louis Vuitton’s latest collection in a slick advertising campaign art directed by the label’s creative head, Marc Jacobs and shot by world-renowned fashion photographer Stephen Meisel.
