Another Sudanese-Australian model to take over the fashion world by storm. At only 19, Adut Akech has graced the cover of British Vogue, was nominated as Model Of The Year at The British Fashion Awards 2018 (while she didn’t bag the trophy, Adut did win the Industry Vote for Model Of The Year – Women for Models.com), and made her runway debut as a Saint Laurent exclusive.
