born In Russia, in Germany, the school attended: This was not enough. Anna Sorokin wanted more, much more. A broken studying at the famous Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London (the graduates are not part of Gilbert & George or Stella McCartney): enough. An internship in Paris at "Purple," perhaps the most fashionable fashion magazine: not enough.
So you invented a new. Under the Pseudonym of Anna Delvey, she established an Instagram presence. Had your best times, 44'000 Followers. In 2016, barely 25 years old, she was one of the most famous faces of New York High Society. For weeks she stayed in a design hotel, she knew not only every cool place in the city, but also the waiter and Manager. The most exclusive parties in the city? Anna was invited to.
Anna Delvey was as a rich heiress from Germany; Cologne, her home town, she told. Where the money of the family came, remained vague: For a Financier it was "Delvey family, which is a big wheel in the German Antiques trade", for another well-Known her father was a manufacturer of solar systems.
And this family was apparently willing to Finance for Anna a giant project in New York. She wanted to open in a Prime location, a cultural center, the "Anna Delvey Foundation," she told two. three Restaurants, a Bar, a gallery with changing exhibitions of the best artists – Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin. They negotiated with banks, brokers, Silicon Valley sizes, luminaries of the art world. In a glossy brochure presented the project. It was about $ 22 million, maybe 44 million.
Meanwhile, nursed Anna Delvey rich the life style of the super: it was only in the best design pieces, even if it was Leggings, rented a private jet, organised parties in the coolest Restaurants. And had always have to pay for. A friend stayed on 3000 dollars of debt sitting, time you left a Hotel without having the bill paid. The account statements, which they presented to the banks were fake.
Up to 15 years in prison
in 2018 the whole of dizziness flew on. She had no money, no rich family, just a compelling personality, an exotic European accent, good relationships and an inexhaustible knowledge of the art and cultural world. No-one asked questions. Billion not be spent on works of art, the money comes rarely from Russia or China, questions as to the exact origin of the damage to the business.
Now Anna Sorokin in New York stands in front of the court. 275'000 of dollars they have looted. This week, the judgment is expected, it is up to 15 years in prison to threaten her. Of the accused, the judgment, however, seems less important than the Publicity. She has hired a stylist, not delayed the start of the trial because she was with her Outfit satisfied, even if the judge responded to plenty of irritated. Anna Sorkin, it seems, wants to be famous. This is the one. the Netflix is planning a series about her life.
