Model of the Week: Nadia Giramata


Viva London & Viva Paris


179cm (5’10.5″)

Place of Origin:
Rubavu, Rwanda

Ethnic Origin:
I am Rwandese, I grew up in France and I live in England so I’m kind of from… everywhere!! :D


How discovered:
I was spotted at Picadilly Place in Manchester on my way home from college…

Favorite things:
Hanging out with my sisters, being an auntie, modelling, and practicing the six languages that I speak.

Favorite music, band:
I don’t really have any, I listen to every type of music. I can go from African music, to pop, rock and gospel but I have a weakness for 80s & 90s music – they really make me dance!

Playing basketball, travelling, and cooking.

Favorite piece of clothing:
Earrings, necklaces… actually jewellery in general, boots, shorts… Everything trendy and elegant :)

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Going to the supermarket not really dressed up, in pyjamas! I love it! :D

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Every job that I have done until now whether it was a “big” one or a “small” one, they all have an importance because they make me grow, gain experience, and you never know who you’re going to meet! My job is quite important for me, because I am passionate about it.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
In France I love the culture and the architecture, in England I love their fashion style and the fact that they’re really open minded, and in Rwanda I love the food and the African “familly culture” in general.

Favorite artist (any kind):
Mattafix, Ismael Lo

Place you would love to visit:
New York and the whole African continent!!

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I am easily obssessed about everything, because when I want something I’d do everything to get it.

    Titus,make-up or no make-up, fake hair or not, beauty should not be defined by that alone. Natural beauty comes in all different forms no matter what a person chooses to do on the outside.
