Africa Fashion Week London, as Europe’s largest catwalk and exhibition showcase featuring African and African-inspired designs.
We are holding an open casting call for all models based in the UK and Europe.
Attending the casting will be our Official Casting Director, AFWL veteran male model, Hassan ReeSe. Hassan now heads his own agency, Dam Model Management. He will be on the lookout for male models to join his stable as well as some incredible girls he knows will be an asset to the AFWL catwalk.
Head Stylist, Samson Soboye, will be looking for poise, elegance, and the ability to show designs to the fullest on the catwalk. He also has an eye for new faces for his own campaigns under his own brand Soboye.
We will mentor you on how to walk for us. Be prepared to show your walk over and over again, and most importantly, do not be shy!
