The Vogue team trav­elled to Ade­laide for this month’s cover shoot, invit­ing our­selves into model Adut Akech Bior’s fam­ily home and com­mu­nity. The shoot, which saw the en­tire Akech Bior fam­ily con­gre­gate to cel­e­brate their model rel­a­tive, was one of the most ex­trav­a­gant and lo­gis­ti­cally chal­leng­ing in Vogue his­tory – getting cou­ture from Paris to South Aus­tralia is no mean feat! Adut’s older sis­ter, Akima Akech (also known as Kim), has seen the model trans­form from a novice into one of the most fa­mous names in fash­ion. But de­spite her sis­ter’s celebrity, es­pe­cially in Ade­laide, Akima main­tains she’s the same girl she al­ways was. “I’m very proud that she’s made her dreams come to life,” she says. As for the cover shoot, Akima states that al­though the clothes, make-up and glam­our were fun, it was the fam­ily com­ing to­gether that made it spe­cial. “The most im­por­tant thing for me was be­ing able to share that ex­pe­ri­ence with my sib­lings and my fam­ily.”
