BRITAIN- Nyasha Matonhodze, a Zimbabwean-born, British-raised 16-year-old model, has been chosen as one of the new faces of Louis Vuitton.
Maronhodze was discovered 2 years ago on the street of Northamptonshire by a modeling agency, who encouraged her to compete in the UK Elite Model Look competition, which she coincidently won.
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.
