On the first day of London Fashion Week, Yasmin and Amber appeared in the spring/summer 2015 show for Gyunel. Taking inspiration from the nomadic scorpion, Azerbajan-born Gyunel Rustamova’s latest collection evoked a desert theme with hairstyles and prints reflecting its spirit of adventure and wanderlust.
This appearance marks Yasmin’s first turn on the catwalk since Stéphane Rolland’s spring/summer 2012 haute couture show in January 2012 and over 30 years on the runway, with her earliest shows for Katharine Hamnett and Roland Klein during the spring/summer 1985 season.
On September 6th, Yasmin and daughter Amber joined Jade Jagger to appear in a special catwalk show at Westfield London in celebration of Fashion’s Night Out London. While this is not the first time that mother and daughter have shared the catwalk (most recently for Chanel last December), Yasmin admitted that she still found it rather strange: “I mean, it’s wonderful, it’s fantastic to come here together but it is quite odd,” she told Getty after the event. “I see her walking down and I think, ‘I’m sure I’m not really meant to be here…’ (laughs) ‘…not sure I’m still meant to do shows with my daughter.’ But it’s cool, you know… it’s fantastic. I’m very happy I still can.”
While she may modestly wonder if she is too old for the catwalk, Yasmin’s poise and confident bearing as well as her serene beauty and affable demeanor will hopefully continue to leave her in demand for years to come.
