New York- The stepdaughter of US Vice President Kamala Harris, Ella Emhoff, took her first steps as a model this Thursday, in the show of the New York brand Proenza Schouler at New York Fashion Week (NYFW).
A senior at New York’s Parsons School of Design, Emhoff was one of the models who appeared in the film presented by Proenza Schouler on Thursday, which replaced the traditional parade due to the pandemic.
The 21-year-old wore a black leather trench-coat, a long gray coat and a black pantsuit, examples of an autumn-winter collection where comfort and spaciousness dominate.
“It was my first fashion experience,” Emhoff said later in a conversation with the two creators of Proenza Schouler, Lázaro Hernández and Jack McCollough, posted on the official NYFW website. “I must say I was a little nervous.”
Hernández said that the film was shot outdoors several weeks ago in New York, when the thermometers read -10 ° C.
Emhoff is the daughter of attorney Doug Emhoff, husband of Kamala Harris, and Kerstin Mackin. The couple divorced in 2009 and Doug Emhoff married Harris in 2014.
Ella Emhoff attracted the attention of the press and public opinion during the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on January 20, where she wore a Miu Miu coat that caused a sensation.
A week later she was hired by the modeling agency IMG.
Taking advantage of the momentum and her appearance at Proenza Schouler, Ella Emhoff, who has long sold fabrics and clothes made by herself on her website, put a mini crochet five-piece collection for sale online that sold in just hours . (AFP)
