British supermodel Naomi Campbell closed the debut show of Nigerian designer Kenneth Ize at the Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

The Lagos-born fashion designer’s collection in the French capital is inspired by his childhood memories of going to church with his mother, the state-owned France 24 reports.

Vogue magazine reports that the sight of Campbell striding down Ize’s runway in a traditional Nigerian fabric, known as Asoke, caused a media frenzy.

The show’s organisers shared a video on Twitter of the moment:
