History is being made and in our time!
Every year, the Chanel Couture show ends by a model in an unconventional wedding gown on the runway. This model is hand selected by the creative director himself and she walks alongside the resident kid model, Hudson Kroenig.
Black models all over the globe had reasons to celebrate recently as one of our own, Adut Akech Bior, an exquisite South Sudanese Model closed the 2018 Chanel Haute Couture Show held in Paris. She has made history as the second black model after fellow Sudanese Alek Wek in 2004, to close out the Chanel couture show joining the Chanel Brides alumni like Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Luna Bijl among others.
The 19-year-old Sudanese first made headlines earlier this year at the MET gala night where she slayed in a beautiful dusty pink gown.
“Wow where do I even begin? After opening the last Chanel cruise show, I honestly didn’t think it could get any better but I was wrong because I just closed this one,” she enthused on Instagram. “There is no amount of words that can express what this moment means to me. The beauty of having a dream, is watching it come to life.”
Adut was dressed in a mint green two-piece tweed suit featuring a foliage pattern, embellished with sequins on the front of the jacket and along the sides of the skirt.
