Colombian designer had 'survivors club' of 20 people.

A Colombian designer is known for his garments that are not just chic, they could save your life.
Miguel Caballero he has a 'survivor's club' of 20 customers who owe their lives to wearing his garments.
But his creations come at a price. A bulletproof men's suit can cost between $6,000 and $8,000 and a blazer up to $3,500.
The Colombian fashion designer makes lightweight, bulletproof clothing for dignitaries including the King of Jordan.
"My greatest satisfaction is not earning business, it's saving lives," Caballero, who founded the company bearing his name 21 years ago, told Reuters following a fashion show on Friday with models strutting down the runway as at any other.
The designer's clothing company produces clothing for numerous heads of state and VIPs.
Caballero counts prime ministers and presidents in Latin America and further afield among his clients and typically makes his clothing, for both men and women, to order.
He can even offer his clients bulletproof underwear.
Several models presented the Caballero collection at the Chico Museum in Bogota, Colombia, during the fashion show.
"It's amazing, it is discrete, it is lightweight, the innovation is beautiful, you don't even know that anyone is wearing it," said Rasheda Walker, who sells Caballero's clothing in Nigeria and Kenya.
Caballero, who exports to 23 countries, also makes less glamorous garments, including de-mining suits and bulletproof vests for military and police forces.
