Model Crush Monday: Victor Ndigwe

victor_ndigwe19-year-old Victor Ndigwe is taking the fashion scene by storm.

Ndigwe was just like any other aspiring model in Nigeria, as pulse.ng reports, until his story changed in 2014 after he won the Aquafina Elite Model Look competition in Nigeria.

He was named by Vogue as one of seven male models making moves at men’s shows.

Ndigwe can be described as nothing less than elegant.

His second debut was walking in the Hermes show.

From then he has modeled in Milan, walking for Ermenegildo Zegna and Missoni, as the first ever Nigerian male model to do so. After that he went on to Paris, where he walked for brands including Hermès, Balmain, Kenzo and Haider Ackermann.

In speaking to Vogue, Victor said, “I want to inspire other models that have dreams the same way I had them. I just want to be a good example.”

The supermodel in training has been featured as the new face of fashion brand – Missoni‘s Spring/Summer 2016 campaign, and rocked the runway at London Collection Men for Fall 2016.

With little information about his background in Nigeria pre-modeling, the mysterious Ndigwe is making waves. He is signed to Elite Models Paris.
