Nyasha Matonhodze


Fashion model Nyasha Matonhodze is from Zimbabwe,Africa.  She was born July 31,1995. Discovered at age 15 in the 2010 Elite Model Look competition, Nyasha Matonhodze’s rise through modellings ranks may be described as nothing short of epic. Matonhodze debuted on the international show circuit during the Spring/Summer 2011 collections, sparking interest in Paris with appearances at Louis Vuitton, Loewe and Emanuel Ungaro. Over the ensuing year, Matonhodze’s modeling options kicked into overdrive with key industry support from stylist and Love editor-in-chief Katie Grand, culminating in a heart wrenchingly beautiful Mert & Marcus lensed cover for Love and a Fall/Winter 2011 Louis Vuitton campaign shot by Steven Meisel. A single glance at Matonhodze’s soulful melancholic gaze, luscious pillowy pout, and luxuriant caramel skin tone, is all it takes to fall under her magnificent spell.


With all eyes trained firmly on her 178 cm gazelle-like silhouette, Matonhodze logged a blistering trail through the Spring/Summer 2012 season appearing in 47 shows including Givenchy, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent. Editorial appearances in Teen Vogue, American Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, Russh, French Numéro, W, and the British and American editions of Vogue followed swiftly, heralding Matonhodze’s full blown star potential. Represented by Elite Model Management in Paris, Matonhodze recently skipped the Spring/Summer 2013 shows to focus on completing her high school education leaving the fashion industry wanting for more. With the Fall/Winter 2013 season fast approaching, Inoubliable Model Army caught up with Matonhodze to discuss her imminent return to the catwalk, those inevitable Naomi Campbell comparisons, and what it means to be truly “Super”.
