S. Sudanese, and Australian Supermodel Ajak Deng’s Quits Modelling

One of Australia's most successful international runway models, Ajak Deng, today announced she has quit modeling because of 'fakes and lies' in the fashion industry.'  Supermodel Ajak Deng’s manager says the Australian fashion industry prefers to spend big budgets on “caucasian girls” rather than “dark skinned” models.

Deng has modelled for a number of high profile designers including Dior, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Marc Jacobs, Chloe and Jean Paul Gaultier, and starred in campaigns for Topshop, Barneys, MAC and Levis.

In an Instagram post uploaded early Wednesday morning, Deng said that she was happy to announce that she was 'officially done with the fashion industry.'
The Melbourne model also said she was 'thankful and grateful for every sweet souls [sic] that I have crossed paths with.'
Stephen Bucknall, of FRM Model Management, said he struggles to book Australian jobs for Deng, who has starred overseas for Louis Vuitton, Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino, and will feature in 2016 campaigns for Givenchy and Marc Jacobs.
