Agnes Storm Holch Povlsen’s Bio
Agnes was born in 2000, in Denmark. However, her exact date and month of birth are not known as she and her family prefer to keep the private details of their life away from the public. She was one of the four children born to the billionaire CEO of Bestsellers Anders Holch Povlsen and his wife, Anne Storm Povlsen. Her father is a fashion business guru, who inherited his family’s successful clothing line, and he is also the biggest shareholder of the urban clothing brand ASOS. Her siblings are named Alma, Astrid, and Alfred. The Povlsen clan are a private lot, and despite how wealthy they were, they do their best to protect their personal information and keep it away from the public. She and her siblings attended Skovvangskolen, an exclusive private school located in Denmark.
Agnes developed an interest in fashion from an early age and was planning to study fashion designing before things took a rough turn, and her life ended abruptly. The Povlsen family were taking a vacation in Sri Lanka, when the hotel they were staying at, the Shangri-La, was attacked by two terrorists. Although the hotel is one of the finest and safest establishments in the country, the attackers decide to make it their target since wealthy foreign tourists were bound to be there. This senseless violent attack took the lives of Agnes and two of her siblings.
The attack which took place on Easter Sunday claimed the lives of 253 people including Agnes, Alma, and Alfred Povlsen. Her family received numerous condolences from thousands of people all over the world such as dignitaries, prime ministers, as well as friends and business partners. Her school flew the Danish flag at half mast in order to honor and mourn the Povlsen children.
