Madrid - A Spanish fashion designer surprised the public by including four 'grandmothers' among his models at one of the country's top fashion shows, media reported Tuesday.
Designer Juan Duyos participated in the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week, which runs from September 17 to 22.
'I am fed up with seeing 20-year-old models advertise anti-wrinkle creams for women aged 60,' said Duyos, whose used four elderly models to present his delicate and pastel-coloured designs at the fashion show on Monday.
'Beauty does not end (at the age of) 40 or 50,' Duyos said, describing elderly women as being 'as beautiful as 20-year-olds.'
