De grootste angst voor designer, publiek en model is vallen op de catwalk. Vallen is verboden en gênant. De te vermijden situatie is ditmaal je grootste goed: het is elegant, wekt sympathie, ontlaad en is aanstekelijk.

''The VALL Collection displayed beautiful choreography and a story behind each character that emerged onto the catwalk. The concept was fear; the fear of falling or suffering severe embarrassment in front of a group of people. To dig a little deeper; VALL explores the inner human, our emotions and how they influence our decisions. Fashion is presented in a theatrical way - rather than something that is astonishing to look upon, it moves. The show begins as one model walks the runway and then falls. Instantly the show begins and an energy throughout the room is created. Sophie Mantel directs a performance that makes one think and feel rather than just look.'' - Darrell Larkin - Idol Magazine UK
