Last Thursday was reality of a nightmare for half-Sudanese, half-Egyptian model, Amal Contran, who lives in Lagos. She opening her eyes wide and throwing her right hand in the air and left hand to the ground to brace for her inevitable fall while walking the runway for Kinabuti, a Nigerian fashion house run by Italian designer Caterina Bortolussi. Bortolussi, according to the label’s website, “celebrates women with innovative and eclectic designs.” Although Contran was wearing a sleeveless dress with a bold, geometric print from the line’s 2013 collection, it was her nude heels, in this case, that proved too eclectic for her to keep her balance.

She also suffered no injuries, apart from very sore knees, according to Bortolussi. “Amal came backstage and she was sooo sorry and apologetic,” the designer said. Bortolussi’s 2013 collection for Kinabuti, titled “Vlisco Carnival in the Desert,” earned rave reviews, but it was Contran’s fall, naturally, that stole the shows as photographs of her fall were printed across the world. “When we saw the articles today we called her, and she was laughing and happy that she didn’t ruin the show,” Bortolussi said. “She actually made it special and relevant,” Bortolussi added. “God’s ways are incredible, and it all turned out to be a wonderful blessing.” Source: abcnews.com african fabricsafrican fashionKinabutimodel fallmodel fall on runwaynigeria fashion Share FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinWhatsappTelegramEmail Abigail Oluwakemi I'm a fashion stylist turned blogger, I hope you love my work.
