This is called a promising start. At 21, Ella Emhoff walked for the very first time the catwalks of New York Fashion Week by parading for the brand Proenza Schouler this Thursday, February 18. A remarkable appearance for the one who is none other than the daughter-in-law of the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris. The textile design student at Parsons school had already been noticed on January 20 during the nomination of Joe Biden. Still unknown, the daughter of Douglas Emhoff (the husband of Kamala Harris), had caused a sensation by appearing dressed in an embroidered coat of the house of Miu Miu. Enough to reveal its more than important attraction for fashion, which has not escaped the informed eyes of professionals in the field. A few days later, the young woman was offered a contract in one of the most famous modeling agencies in the world, IMG models.
She already has everything of a pro
We must believe that Ella Emhoff wasted no time before setting foot in the stirrup, since here she is already making her debut in modeling at one of the most anticipated fashion events. In a video published on the official website of New York Fashion Week, the apprentice top model reconsidered this first successful experience for the Proenza Schouler label: “I really slept little the day before. because I was afraid of not waking up on time. The meeting time was really very early. And then, yes these are my first steps in a professional environment like this, I meet you for the first times. The expectation was very high, ”she said.
Yet the mission seems successful for Ella Emhoff who already has everything a pro. First dressed in a pantsuit and gray coat set for her first visit, she came back a second time with a femme fatale look made up of a long black leather trench coat and a tight turtleneck with vibrant patterns. No doubt, she must have made Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough proud, the stylist duo behind these creations, but also his father and his famous mother-in-law.
