She is Korean ethical background from her mother and black ethnicity from her father.
Chanel Iman has previously shared how she has faced racism related to her ethnicity in the fashion industry. Many times designers and casting agents have turned her down just because they already “Have one black girl”. And it’s just not Chanel or her black ethnicity that feel this suppression in the modeling world.
Each and every major brands and company have a majority of white ethnicity models at their disposal and only feature a couple of different ethnic models.
