Toronto, ON – World-renowned supermodel, Nini Amerlise, is pleased to announce she has been invited as judge for the 8th annual Student designer competition for the African Fashion week Toronto — along side industry professionals ; published stylist, image consultant and creative director Brenda Foreman and Award winning fashion designer Kyle Gervacy.

Nini Amerlise is a eccentric International Supermodel, nine-time award-winning motivational speaker, author, and CEO/Founder of the non-profit organization, We Are Royals. Carrying a powerful message of resilience and positive esteem for the young generation of achievers –  key attributes that have launched her into stardom. 

In 2014, Amerlise decided to enroll for the face of African fashion week Toronto and was selected to complete. Although without any winnings, a new drive was birthed through a brief interchange of encouragement from an audience member who witnessed her potenial while she competed. 

Amerlise reached out to the AFWT platform on many attempts that same year, in hopes to walk the runway for their annual showcase yet to no avail. In 2015, she returned with determination and was selected during her audition, with a  great celebration from the judges, barely recognizing her due to the immense transformation. That year she walked in over 8 showcases and modeled for international couture designer “Adebayo Jones”. In 2016 she was nominated and won the category “Rising star model of the year” at the closely affiliated platform  African fashion industry awards. In 2018, Nini was invited to judge at the Face of African fashion week, the very event in which began her modeling venture four years prior. 

Since March, COVID-19 has launched varying virtual avenues, African Fashion Week Toronto will be having their virtual presentation for the 8th annual student designer competition. The Virtual viewing party will be Saturday, October 10th, 2020. 1pm – 2pm. Viewers are welcome to join the live, support the designer, enjoy a great production, and cast votes.
