Ella Emhoff, stepdaughter of the US Vice President, Kamala Harris, debuted this Thursday as a model at New York Fashion Week participating in the digital presentation of the new Proenza Schoulder collection and in a talk with its designers.
She, the 21-year-old daughter of Harris’s husband Doug Emhoff, caused a sensation in the fashion world last month for the extravagant coat she wore at the U.S. presidential inauguration event, and shortly after the ceremony achieved a contract at the IMG modeling agency.

New York Fashion Week has held for the second time a virtual edition in which many veteran names have been missing and most have published videos and catalogs of their garments on the internet, so the organization has enlivened the event with some talks .
