LONDON, November 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Acclaimed German fashion designer Michael Michalsky granted Zefyr Life Magazine a one hour interview at his Berlin headquarters and atelier on the eve of his now famous 'StyleNite'. The conversation touched upon the designer's childhood, his love for fashion and for the arts, and his new haute-couture collection. 

'Michael Michalsky is a beautiful human, and that's what impresses us most' said Florian David, Zefyr Life Magazine Editor in Chief and CEO of Zefyr Worldwide in London. 'He is not afraid to take risks, and his ability to spot trends and talents is uncanny.' 

Lina Daugirdaite, Zefyr's Creative Director, added: 'People like to talk a lot about racism without ever doing much against it, instead Michael prefers to walk the talk, and have three ravishing black models at his catwalk inside the prestigious Ritz-Carlton. This deserves respect.'
