Few of us may have recognized Aamito Lagum as she walked Bottega Veneta, Giles, Paul Smith, J.Mendel, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, Lacoste, The Row this Fashion Month. She is the winner of the first cycle of Africa's Next Top Model, the limited viewership of which has been a boon to Aamito - unlike her American counterparts suffering from the "Top Model curse."
As TBM wrote in 2013 as the show premiered,
Being cast on a Top Model show is almost always a death sentence to a modelling career. But with a limited audience outside of Africa, perhaps this won't mean instant overexposure for the contestants.
