Sister Gigi and Bella Hadid who have been in the media spotlight a lot lately were also featured in this runway show. They both looked absolutely stunning modelling various pieces from this collection.

That is the best part, being able to express yourself. “Fashion to me was just one of those things that came naturally,” she said. “I enjoy discovering it — all the different styles, finishes, fabrics, silhouettes. It’s not easy, but it doesn’t feel like work. It’s one of the things that doesn’t feel like work.”
