Something unexpected happened at the Thomas Puttick show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia this morning.
No, a model didn’t fall over, Bella Hadid didn’t make a surprise appearance nor did we see Imogen Anthony walk the runway in a bikini made entirely of sand – although that has all happened in the past.
This time, we’re talking about the good kind of surprise.
The emerging luxury womenswear designer eschewed models for muses for his 2017 Resort show, presenting what may just be one of the most diverse runways we've seen.
There were people of all backgrounds, skin colours and ages, each with one thing in common - they had inspired Puttick in some way.
