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.


She made the official announcement today, February 24, 2016 on Instagram which reads:

An hour later Deng posted a photo on Instagram of herself smiling and looking up to the sky with the caption 'Thank you for your blessings God.'

Deng moved to Melbourne, Australia, in 2005, after her family fled Sudan as refugees. Her mother died of malaria in a refugee camp in Kenya whilst they were waiting to be resettled.
