Danish designer sends naked models down the catwalk
If you’re attending a fashion show, you could be forgiven for thinking that the models would be showing off the designer’s latest fashions.
But Danish couture designer Nicholas Nybro made the bizarre decision to send some of his models down the catwalk completely naked during the Copenhagen Fashion Week.
The designer said the show was a ‘tribute to the human body’, and there was certainly nothing left to the imagination.
Both men and women strutted down the catwalk completely naked, while one model went topless wearing a frothy tutu style skirt.
According to the designer the sight of naked skin was not intended to be provocative, but was meant to be a reminder that everyone is beautiful before they put their clothes on – a fact sometimes forgotten by the fashion industry.
In another departure from tradition, Nybo chose normal people who were not the epitome of physical perfection usually seen on the catwalk to bravely bare all.
After graduating from the Kolding design school in 2009, Nicholas Nybro set up his own label in 2011 and started producing regular biannual collections in 2014.
He shot to prominence in 2016 when Danish actress Ghita Nørby, 82, attended a ball thrown by Queen Margrethe of Denmark in one of his creations.
