Kendall Jenner Talks About Biases In Fashion Industry
Reality TV star Kendall Jenner says she faced obstacles and bias from people in the fashion industry when she first started modelling.
The 19-year-old model has posed for the latest issue of V magazine in a black and white shot wearing slinky top, reported E!Online.
"You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back," Kendall Jenner said.
"It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees, trying my best to break into this business as a teenager. I am so grateful to Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Katie Grand, who took a chance on me that first season and gave me an opportunity. My parents taught me that work ethic is one of the most important keys in life, and I believe it," Kendall added.
