Harris’s stepdaughter, artist and designer Ella Emhoff, 21, walked the runway for the New York City-based Proenza Schouler label at New York Fashion Week.
The parade was filmed a few weeks ago but the coronavirus pandemic ruled out a traditional show.
Emhoff wore three different looks for Proenza Schouler — a long grey jacket with matching slashed trousers, a black trench coat and a dark pantsuit. She also shared one of the outfits on her Instagram feed.
Ella Emhoff’s first runway experience
“That was my first ever fashion experience,” Emhoff said during a talk with two of Proenza Schouler’s designers on the New York Fashion Week website.
“I have to say I was a little nervous. I definitely lost a little sleep the night before.”
Ella Emhoff is the daughter of Harris’s husband, American lawyer Doug Emhoff, and his first wife, Kerstin Mackin. As the first-ever husband of a US Vice President, Doug Emhoff is the first “Second Gentleman” in American history.
Ella Emhoff signs with IMG Models
The prestigious modeling agency IMG Models signed Emhoff in late January after she wore a Miu Miu coat to Joe Biden’s and Harris’s swearing-in ceremony at the US Capitol. Her outfit for the presidential inauguration went viral and she quickly became a social media sensation.
The final-year student at the Parsons School of Design in New York is also a knitwear designer. On Thursday, Ella Emhoff released a collection of five items that included two sweater vests and a long striped dress.
Only one of each item was made and they quickly sold out on the website Mall, which is an online marketplace for emerging designers.
