Africa Fashion Week London have announced model Victoria Michaels as their brand ambassador for 2015.

Victoria is an enthusiastic social change advocate and her passion for Women and Children's Education led to the establishment of the Victoria Michaels Foundation – a non-profit organization seeking to empower women and less privileged children across Ghana.   

It is a vehicle to drive various philanthropic and charity projects in Ghana, including support for various children's homes, orphanages, destitute women and anti-poverty campaigns; and she hopes to make the Foundation's work a pan-African project by 2017.

Groomed by the late legendary statesman designer, Kofi Ansah, Victoria Michaels' international modelling career has seen her participating as a runway model at the AU Summit GOLD Show, BBC Fashion Show, Dubai Fashion Week, FIMA International Fashion Show and Dark & Lovely Fashion Show.

Victoria has also been invited as a guest to some of the most prestigious fashion shows in the globe including the London and New York fashion weeks. She has also been featured in major publications like Vogue Italia.

She is one of the most sought-after models to be brand ambassador and lead commercial model for leading businesses in Africa.  

She has played major roles in commercials for Hertz Rent-a-Car, Vodafone, MTN, Nescafe, Da-Viva, and Bela-Aqua mineral water. Charitable institutions also see Victoria as a powerful brand ambassador; she was chosen by the British Council as one of two representatives from Ghana at the All African Youth Summit in Johannesburg,SA.

Victoria has won many awards for her work, in 2014 alone; she came out with four outstanding awards including being honoured by Ovation International as its first Angel of Hope Award recipient.

This award recognises celebrities in Africa whose image and positive contribution continues to inspire hope across the continent. She was honoured that evening alongside Ghanaian former leader – President Jerry Rawlings and her late mentor, Kofi Ansah who was awarded post-humorously.

The founder of Africa Fashion Week London, Ronke Ademiluyi said "We are excited to have Victoria on board as our brand Ambassador for Africa Fashion Week London 2015.

"We see her as someone who represents our brand in many ways, and  we believe she can use  her knowledge to encourage the young & upcoming  models.

"We look forward to working with her and to creating a fantastic event  this year."

Victoria said, "It feels really great to be chosen as the Brand Ambassador for a globally acclaimed proudly African event like the African Fashion Week London.

"I am particularly excited to be part of this grand platform that showcases the original African creativity, style and talent.

"We have a very rich fashion culture and I look forward to working with inspiring African designers from both within the continent and the Diaspora as we thrill and dazzle the world with authentic mind blowing designs that speaks only of our incredible creativeness."
