Michael Kors‘ New York Fashion Week show started 25 minutes later than scheduled – and sadly it wasn’t just to be fashionably late.

According to WWD, a model named Ondria Hardin who was set to walk in the show became ill before it began. Paramedics were called to the scene, and took her away in a stretcher.

Hardin was treated outside the Spring Studios venue with an oxygen mask for 15 minutes, says the report.

“She was unwell and cognizant,” a spokeswoman from Michael Kors told WWD. “She got treatment immediately, and that’s why we didn’t start the show. The paramedics came. There was no point in taking a chance. She was with her agent. It’s a lot for these girls to endure.”

An eyewitness backstage told Page Six that “it looked like she had a seizure, but she’s going to be okay. She’s totally fine now.

A representative for Hardin could not immediately be reached for comment.
