The Berlin Fashion Week July 2013 begins tomorrow. Will it be full of surprises like at the Michalsky show last year?
To present his summer collection 2013 at the Berlin Fashion Week, Michael Michalsky sent former Miss Austria and heavily pregnant Patricia Kaiser, down the catwalk. The 27-year-old was expecting her first child in just six weeks. A young woman right before giving birth to her first child was chosen to embody the collection’s theme, “Personal Sunshine”. The designer said he always makes sure his models aren’t too thin.
Celebrity guests attending the Michalsky show were delighted by the pregnant model’s runway performance. “I think it’s great,” said Tatort actress Sibel Kekilli at the show in Berlin’s Tempodrom. “He also had a model with a prosthetic leg walk for him once and that was amazing too.”
Top model Franziska Knuppe explained that she also continued to work while she was pregnant and shot for a catalog just a week before her daughter was born. “I think it’s great when a woman can show her pregnancy as something beautiful and not something to be ashamed of,” said the 37-year-old.
We can hardy wait to see what the designers will come up with this season!
