Ajak Deng

First black d dummy run for Chlo since Liya Kebede, the Sudanese Ajak Deng d fie since a little more than 4 seasons the frilosit of fashion sphere against the beauties of b don’t…

Outside the norm, the fate of Ajak Deng assur is lying. When in December 1989, Ajak – of its true name Ang alcoholic pr – emerges, it is indeed a country torn by interminable fratricidal conflicts which serves as its homeland. 12 years later, the civil war becoming more and more bruised re, the Deng family is forced to migrate to the Kenya’s refugees camp.

That said, it was written that nothing would be saved Ajak: a few months after their arrival, her mother died of malaria, leaving the teenager the t you in a family of seven children, including the youngest is six months.

After four years especially particularly difficult, things finally seem to settle in 2005, when she manages to fly to Australia with his brothers and sisters. Ajak r turns out then follow a tuition almost normal, all while dealing with his own. But she does not forget his dream: put its not in those of his idol, the Sudanese model Alek Wek.

To do this, the 16 year old girl tried his luck every fashion contest the Australia organizes, which one of “Miss South Sudan Australia”, o she attracts the attention of the talent scouts.

Unfortunately, for the svelte Ajak lucky isn’t always at the rendezvous: between a generous v agent (which doesn’t h sitera not defraud him) and many denials that she wipes (in Australia, the majority majority of casting directors d clare “do not work with black models”), Ajak Deng must fight to succeed his place within the modeling.

PR f rant to focus on its goal, the young woman quickly takes the party to ignore the behavior sometimes tr s borderline of the different actors of the Australian fashion, these photographers of fashion week in Melbourne backstage like merely shooter mod white…

His patience will also pay: in 2009, she d tick the Grail by integrating the New York agency IMG. It must be said that in the world of fashion, things are so gently trying to evolve, starting casting directors receive guidelines to expand their vision of the beauty…

In September 2009, Ajak d so go for a few New York creators cr, before asking for a Benetton campaign. It was however only in March 2010 that she starts truly make the expounds: she then walked the catwalks most prominent, Lanvin Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chlo.

Continuing his ascension, she poses for Interview magazine in may, then d go for Lanvin and Louis Vuitton among others during the last years res fashion week. Taking more and more insurance, the young woman polishing her look in to dyeing hair platinum blonde…

Today, if the career of Ajak starts look like that of the young promising models, things are still a little different for the ex – refugees and Sudanese. Out of the question for it once its cachet re u follow her work colleagues when their vir are shopping: the priority of Deng remains education and the well-being of his many brothers and sisters, which it has load.

However, Ajak could soon no more be the only meet the needs of his family, his younger sister of 18, Zahara, both about to kiss a model career…
