What's up? I'm back with some more pictures right off the runway. The ELLE magazine x Mercedes Benz show is one of the more special shows on the schedule each season, always highlighting the works of a young talent. This year's talent: Xavi Reyes.
Xavi Reyes is a designer from Spain who founded his label with the same name only in 2013. His designs are largely gender-free (note the blush and make up on both male and female models during this show) playing with new silhouettes inspired by "youth, future and melancholy".
Fun fact: the guy in the first picture is a friend of mine, Simon Dube Paul, and I accompanied him and Phillip to the casting just a few days prior to the show. Trust me castings are not as easy and fun as they may seem on Germany's next Topmodel (You might have followed my day on Snapchat! LoisOpoku). We left the casting go watch Dube's little brother's basketball game and came back as the designer + team were packing up. The boys hushed in for a quick minute. Good thing Dube tried his luck.
He booked the show!
Enjoy the pictures of the runway. As usual shot by my boy Phillip and edited by me.
