Buckle up, there are belts on the runway

Last updated on: July 11, 2017 09:52 IST

Buckle up! This collections is an ode to the good old belt. 

Designer Marina Hoermanseder made sure that the belt was the highlight of her show during the Berliner Mode Salon Spring/Summer 2018.

With skirts, bags, shoes, trousers and cropped tops held together by leather straps, Marina gave the accessory a new leash of life.

It's time you fasten your beats!
