Andreja Pejic has made her first runway appearance since undergoing gender-transition surgery last year, walking for Giles Deacon’s Fall 2015 show at London Fashion Week. No words can express our excitement!
“It feels amazing to be making my runway debut for one of my favorite British designers #Giles Thank you to @kegrand and @guineapiggiles #thereturn #LFW,” Andreja wrote to Instagram. The Bosnian-born Australian model walked alongside the likes of Kendall Jenner, Jessica Stam and Lily Donaldson as part of her major comeback.
The 23-year-old made her public debut as a woman at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Melbourne exhibition in October last year, after taking a few months away from the modelling industry. At the time she told news.com.au that she was looking forward to getting back to business, this time as a woman.
“It’s time for me to be more chic and classic, to work as a woman and to prove my capabilities to do what the other big girls do,” she said. We never needed any proof that she would rise to modelling stardom as a woman, but, if anyone did, the proof is in Giles Deacon’s delicious runway pudding.
