Jim Iyke Makes His First Runway Debut At Lagos Fashion Week


We’ve told you before Jim Iyke is one of the dappest guys of his time and now, we can confirm he’s officially a runway model to watch. He’s been flaunting some clean-cut looks on Instagram, so it was only fair the creative director of Johnson Johnson tapped the actor to help jazz up his show on the Day 1 of Lagos Fashion Week.

The show, which took place at the Eko Hotel and Suites saw Jim modeling for Johnson Johnson, wearing men’s traditional white 2-piece accessorized with massive eyeglasses and a black beret:

The actor has been a long time fashion guy, having featured in some menswear campaigns but it was riveting to see him parade the runway — even the crowd couldn’t have enough of it as he glides through the catwalk in his white installation.

First catwalk or more like dogwalk for @johnsonjohnson_menswear. Premium bespoke at the Lagos fashion week( LFDW). Half way down the aisle I was like "Lawd! What did I get myself into?!" But like every fish out of water experience I indulge in, the humour is precedent. It was an exhilarating 20 mins of uncertainty! #LOL I probably won the dog walk model of the entire event. But where there's a lapse of skills, be sure to make up with an abundance of confidence and zeal. Thank you for the love guys! The applause and catcalls is deeply appreciated. 😂😎🤣🙌🏽💪🏾✊🏿 Now back to BIZ! #Harvpapa #Gladysboi #CatwalkHeroLOL #LiveLoveLaugh #JohnsonJohnson #StylePiper #DogWalkChronicles
