Fashion month – this four week period dedicated to Spring / Summer 2018 was a great time for Kaia Gerber. She was the undisputed star of the fashion month in all the fashion shows she was part of. She opened many important shows. She made her first runway debut in Calvin Klein show.

Kaia Gerber is following in her famous mother’s footsteps. Cindy Crawford has had an incredible modeling and acting journey over the past five decades. Her daughter, Kaia, got everybody’s attention on Chanel’s fashion show 2018. Her mother did the same for Chanel in 1993. Also, Cindy modeled for Versace in 1992, whereas Kaia stared in Versace’s 2018 fashion show.

Like mother like daughter
The sixteen year old star is poised to become a fashion icon and she deserves to be. She is now the center of the fashion universe, leaving behind more experienced models such as Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
This is a sudden success, but certainly not a coincidence. Obviously, her mother has had a strong influence on her daughter’s passion for modeling. Kaia made her runway debut in the fashion industry when she was only ten years old, in the Young Versace fashion show.

We are absolutely convinced that this is only the beginning of Kaia Gerber’s long story…
One thing is for sure: someday we will definitely remember Kaia, as an important fashion icon who will be the inspiration of generations to come, just as we do now with her mother, Cindy Crawford.
