Fabrice Gayakpa, the German MGE2014 delegate made a stunning performance during this year’s Grand Finale in Austria in a way that did not impressed only the audience. 

His modeling and stage-talent caught the eye of Austria’s sensational fashion designer Markus Spatzier and his label Manufaktur Herzblut.

Convinced and inspired by Fabrice the Tyrolian designer offered the German delegate to be part of his team during the Vienna Fashion Week 2014 in September and to present his couture.

Fabrice who won the German title «Mr Gay Model of the Year Germany” in spring 2014, is more than happy about this opportunity.

– Being part of Mr Gay Europe was a great experience and working with Markus Spatzier is a dream come true. The invitation to be working at the Vienna Fashionweek is overwhelming. I’m the happiest man in the world!

Nouba Events, the producer of the German delegate, is very proud of Fabrice and the chance offered to him.

– We are very happy that Mr Gay Model of the Year and Mr Gay Europe could open such an important door into the model-business. Fabrice is very talented and we are sure that he will do great on the catwalk in Vienna” says Dieter Sapper from Nouba Events.

– Fabrice stood out from the rest from day one, says Tore Aasheim, president of Mr Gay Europe.

– I remember that we commented on the fact that even if he was a little shy in the beginning he must have been born on a catwalk. And I am happy that a designer like Markus Spatzier also saw Fabrice’ talent. We will for sure be watching his progress in the fashion industry.
