Grand comeback for this 67 yr old model

March 14, 2017 16:51 IST

The designer chose an older model because she has several clients who are over 70.

Brazilian designer Raquel Davidowicz of UMA made headlines at the ongoing Sao Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil by roping in a 67 year old model to walk for her.

Dressed in a red tailored suit, Suzana Kertzer strode the ramp amidst loud cheer from the audience.

The collection itself featured minimalist, monochrome looks.

The emphasis was on a sophisticated and streamlined collection, ideal for a cosmopolitan woman.

Some pics from the fashion show.
