welcome

Tobi Olamide Alabi popularly known as Thecatwalkcoach started his career back in 2014 as a model in Accra, Ghana. He has walked on reputable fashion shows in and outside Nigeria such as glitz Africa fashion week,  Ghana fashion and design week etc.  On the 9th day of March 2017, he launched his career to becoming a catwalk instructor to help groom/mould and educate aspiring models and beauty Queens on the importance of catwalk, etiquette, poise, posture, styling and charisma etc as he believes proper catwalk gives a model more appraisal on the runway than height and skin color. To list a few of his achievements, he became the first catwalk instructor from Nigeria and Africa as a whole to be listed on Walk Magazine Top 100 creatives in New York, he received the Zikel International Award for his amazing contribution in the pageant industry, he was the first instructor for a model competition in lagos, Nigeria and has since then judged so many big and well known pageants across the globe. He has trained, groomed and moulded the careers of Beauty Queens such as MBGN Ecowas’19, The Nigerian Queen(1st runner up 2019, The Nigerian Queen 2020, Face of Zikel 2020 amongst many other queens. He is the first catwalk instructor to sign a partnership deal with Zikel Cosmetics for the face of Zikel beauty pageant and was pronounced as the “King of pageantry” he is the head scout for the top modeling agencies in Nigeria such gngmodelsafrica, newfame models etc. He recently just sealed a partnership with the girl power foundation to give aspiring young girls who cannot afford proper training an opportunity to take a step into their pageant journey by training them at no cost. In the nearest future, he hopes to start his own pageant academy, own a pageant franchise and also be the very first Nigerian born Catwalk Instructor to walk the Miss Universe stage.

Catwalk 3p’s (poise, posture and poses).

  • Catwalk is not only about walking, you need to put into consideration the keys elements of your catwalk which will help you stand out from other contestants on the stage.

Styling

  • Your physical appearance matters a lot, the organization are not looking at crowning a girl without a good fashion sense.
