Adut Rose From The Ashes
Adut, who was a refugee before moving to Australia has always cherished her experience and before the age of 20 she even bought her mum a house. Most will recall she recently got married to Nigerian singer RunTown.
It seems the marriage is what climax the media and news coverage of the superstar for 2020 in a very drastic year. Well, 2021 holds more brightness and positivity and it seems like Italian brand Versace just got lucky and struck a deal with Adut.
Adut Akech Polishes Up Italia’s Versace
Versace is an Italian luxury fashion company and trade name founded by Gianni Versace in 1978. The main collection of the brand is Versace, which produces upmarket Italian-made ready-to-wear and leather accessories.
Although it seems with the cultural dynamic and changes what would once be seen as luxury is technically the urban youths with style.
Versace has not wasted any second to capture this market by modifying it’s marketing campaigns to be more exclusive of black models, being a tad bit smarter than its odd racist peers.
Adut took to instagram to share her appearance and made it clear it was her first campaign of 2021. She by far turned it into a very astonishing and appealing campaign. Just watch her strike the poses in the slide of images below straight of her instagram.
