According to Glamour, Valeria Garcia walked in the Marta Jakubowski spring 2019 show wearing an unbuttoned suit jacket.
Her open top revealed what appeared to be a black and white lace bra, but the white inserts were actually parts of a device known as the Elvie breast pump. It's cleverly designed to sit under bra cups, and moms can use an app to control milk flow "silently and discreetly," no matter where they might be. It's definitely an advancement when it comes to breast pumps, as lots of new moms still deal with clunky, noisy pumping equipment.
The Independent reports that Valeria had her second child, Anton, in June 2017.
The Elvie pump bills itself as silent and hassle-free, and, as Valeria has shown, it’s hands-free too. Sadly, for non-models who want to purchase the pump, it’s currently only available through a wait list until its October release.
This comes just two months after a model walked July’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit fashion show while breastfeeding her baby and a few days after two pregnant women, including Slick Woods who went into labour during the show, were included in the Savage x Fenty lingerie show at NYFW.
So it looks like fashion is finally remembering that the women they clothe may also be mothers and have important stories to tell too.
