When you get an opportunity to speak with someone as like Adwoa Aboah, you take it. Obviously, I was excited—and a bit nervous—to meet with the British model who's been a name on everyone's lips this year following her historic British Vogue cover, standout street style moments, and a number of collaborations with iconic fashion houses from Burberry to Versace. To say that it's been Aboah's year is an understatement.
She arrived in Los Angeles fresh off the heels of a jam-packed fashion month—Aboah walked for Fendi, Marc Jacobs, and Chanel, just to name a few—to celebrate with Ugg for its 40th-anniversary collection. The California heritage brand tapped the model to be the face of its campaign alongside another industry disruptor, designer Heron Preston.
Ugg is no stranger to working with some of the most innovative talent in the fashion industry, as its track record of collaborations with everyone from Jeremy Scott to Y/Project shows. But to celebrate its 40th anniversary, the brand went back to its bread-and-butter styles and launched a limited edit of the most well-known styles like the short and mini boots in its classic sand colorway.
As for Aboah, well, one look into her closet reveals that she's one of the Ugg brand's biggest fans (her personal collection is vast). "I think they're definitely paving the way," she shared with me. Aside from her beloved boots, we also talked about the key to her next-level style ("more is more") and what she hopes for the fashion industry down the road.
