It was a great pleasure and achievement in getting Charli this opportunity to MODEL with Tata Naka at the official ON schedule London Fashion week at ICA Gallery.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) is an artistic and cultural centre on The Mall in London, just off Trafalgar Square. It is located within Nash House, part of Carlton House Terrace, near the Duke of York Steps and Admiralty Arch. It contains galleries, a theatre, two cinemas, a bookshop and a bar.

 

This is a feedback that Wari LACE get back from Charli:

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Wari Lace. She displays such a professional and yet compassionate attitude towards us models. Whenever I am represented by Wari Lace, I feel immensely comfortable, as I know that I am in good hands. Not only does she attend the jobs booked to over see things, but she also attends castings. I recommend the services of Wari Lace to all models that are serious about their craft. I feel so elated that Wari Lace assisted me in getting booked for the Tata Naka presentation show. It is my first on schedule show that I have done for London Fashion Week. The show went extremely well and I have received so much exposure all over social media and in publications such as BFC, Vogue, Noctis and Hello! India just to name a few.” Charli

Working with Natural Hair Models

Models needed for upcoming projects.

We have been questioned on one particular area, Hair! We wish to clarify to why this area of HAIR is very significant. We at LACE request and require all models to have their own hair out on show to any castings and for any event shows that LACE is involved with.

The reasons for this is that Wari LACE / London Africa Cultural Event is from back in the days when models were requested and required to have their own hair out and also back than it was not the norm to have weaved hair as a model.

The ethics of LACE is that we work with enormous talented celebrities’ and upcoming hairstylists, hair award salons and leading hair products. By having your own hair out makes the model casting go smooth which enable the hairstylists to quickly see the condition of your hair to determine into what hair treatments, products and styles which would be best for your hair and one of the important factor is that they need to feel the condition of your hair, so it very important to understand why we have implement this strategy for all activities within LACE models. www.warilace.com

So models, you can now see that this is all for your own best interest!

1st path in fashion

My first introduction to the fashion world come when I was looking for an employment as a Junior Secretary. While looking through the newspaper for a position that was suitable for me I had come across a vacancy at Zandra Rhodes studio off Goldhawk Road back in 90’s.   I decided to applied for the position and I was interviewed by Zandra herself.

Fashion of 80'sWhat a shock what I saw as I did not really know much about fashion world back then and of her! When I saw her! all that I would see was multi coloured hair colours (Cyndi Lauper, Toyah Willcox) that got me from this mature lady.

You see the fashion in the 80’s, were mostly of young people with the multi coloured hair as we had a lot of punk culture going on that it was a delight to see a very culture influential lady but sadly it was not to be for me to work for her!

How did I start to model and why?

Waricopyright

I started late in modelling as this was something that I did not think that I would be interested or be allowed to engage with, simply because I am from a Nigerian background where your parent expected you to study to become a lawyer or doctor back in 80’s!

Nigerian Family

After a short time in working in an office environment, I repeatedly kept on getting stopped in the street and asked if I would consider modelling! I just laughed but when the first recession hit in the early 90’s when I was 21, I say why not and gave it a try out!

It was time to make sure I was going to the gym to achieve in looking great!

Boy it worked but it was hard work in making sure that you look great, specially because it was a hard time for black girls at that time to model.

Sorry healthy eating is not my motto as I love my African food!

But I guess my body structure was different as it was having a different affect on me as I was losing weight instead of putting the weight with the starch!
