Sophia Uzor On Set Modeling For IUF COUTURE
It was less than three weeks ago when I put out the first editorial on her referencing how she continues to ascend in the modeling industry. But within that time and now, Sophia Uzor has covered more grounds than most expected. After her recent shoot modeling for IUF COUTURE, we had a conversation about the project.
“The shoot is for a designer with the brand name IUF COUTURE (@iuf_couture on Instagram ). Those images are created to drive conversation towards her show next year. The photos will be used as backdrop to call for models and designers. It will also be part of the narrative to appeal to prospective sponsors and advertisers.
For me, this particular shoot provided opportunities to work with other models and strike great poses in front of the camera. It’s another opening to grow as a model, learn to love myself and being comfortable with who I am. Modeling for me isn’t about being beautiful but creating something interesting for people to look at and think about. Despite the competition in the industry, I aim to carve a niche” – Uzor Chigozie Sophia
