The ex-Amish model was excited to find out she booked a job for Fashion Week, but when fellow "Breaking Amish" castmate Abe's mom and sister came to visit, they both broke a strict Amish rule.

"It was just like a million people taking pictures," Abe's mom Mary explained. "Back home it was like against God to have your picture [taken]. I had my picture taken left and right and it made me feel so good."

The two may have broken an Amish rule, but they didn't seem to concerned about it. It seems that Kate's decision to move to New York City has inspired a new way of thinking.

Fans on Twitter were excited for Kate and her big showing at Fashion Week, and others were calling Abe's family sweet for paying Kate a visit in the city, despite Kate leaving the Amish community.
