HI ACHENRIN! CAN YOU TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR FAMILY AND UPBRINGING?
I was born in Nashville, Tennessee, to South Sudanese parents. I am a second-generation immigrant, along with my siblings Yara and Madit, and grew up with a single mother in Nebraska. My knowledge of fashion was exactly like everyone else’s, and those were dark times for my closet. Despite that, I was always curious and yearning to learn and grow – so, naturally, art and fashion kind of fell into my lap.
WHAT HAVE SOME OF YOUR MOST MEMORABLE FASHION MOMENTS BEEN THUS FAR?
As cheesy as it may sound, my number one show experience was Stella McCartney Summer 2020. I couldn’t tell you exactly what was different about the environment of that show, but it literally changed everything. I still remember putting on that blue dress for the first time and walking for Stella and the team – the love all of those women made me feel in that moment was invaluable! Then to walk the show and have every one of my agents tell me something really special happened out there was unforgettable.
