Ella Emhoff step-daughter of Kamala Harris signs a remarkable entry into the world of fashion by participating in her very first show, this Thursday, February 18, on the occasion of the New York Fashion Week.
This is what we call promising beginnings. At 21 years old, Ella Emhoff walked for the very first time on the catwalks of the New York Fashion Week by showing for the brand Proenza Schouler this Thursday, February 18th.
A remarkable appearance for her 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 was already noticed on January 20 during the inauguration of Joe Biden. The daughter of Douglas Emhoff (Kamala Harris’s husband), still unknown, caused a sensation by appearing wearing an embroidered coat from the house of Miu Miu. This was enough to reveal her more than important fashion appeal, which did not escape the watchful eyes of professionals in the field. A few days later, the young woman was offered a contract in one of the world’s most renowned modeling agencies, IMG models.
She already looks like a professional model.
Ella Emhoff wasted no time in getting her foot in the door, as she’s already making her modeling debut at one of the most eagerly awaited fashion events. In a video published on the official website of New York Fashion Week, the apprentice model looked back on her first successful experience for Proenza Schouler: “I didn’t sleep much the night before. Firstly because I was afraid I wouldn’t wake up in time. The appointment was really early. And then, yes these are my first steps in a professional environment like this, I’m meeting you for the first time. The expectation was very high,” she confided.
Yet the mission seems to have been a success for Ella Emhoff, who already has all the makings of a pro. Initially dressed in a grey trouser and coat suit for her first visit, she came back a second time with a femme fatale look consisting 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, the designer duo behind these creations, as well as her father and her famous stepmother, proud.
