Fashion merged with death at a catwalk show in Berlin, in which sultry models strutted alongside preserved animal and human corpses.
Controversial anatomist and plastinator Gunther von Hagens is showing some of his most famous works in the Body Worlds - A matter of the heart exhibition at the Postbahnhof until August.
The exhibition - featuring an inside look at more than 200 human specimans including full bodies, organs and body slices - proved a unique backdrop to the dark-themed fashion show of Armenian designer Edward Howhannisjan.
