Australian top model, Ajak Deng, says she has quit modelling because of 'fakes and lies' in the fashion industry after a successful career.


The 26-year-old 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.
