My Berlin Fashion Week // A Personal Recap
With Berlin Fashion Week being a constant in my calender, I spent three days in Berlin to check out the latest trends, do interviews, meet influencer, pr-managers and editors as well as take a look at the current German fashion scene. Arriving into Berlin early Tuesday morning, I checked into my absolute favourite hotel in town: Soho House. As I had an appointment to attend, namely the Lascana Blogger Brunch, I quickly freshened up, grabbed my handbag and made my way to the café in which I was going to meet the Lascana team as well as their campaign’s new faces Ann-Kathrin Brömmel and Kenya Kinski Jones. Only to find that I was not only greeted by the lovely staff but a huge brunch buffet and the models themselves. We sat down and talked fashion tipps, bikini news and everything you may be interested in. In case you want to read what the girls had to say, simply stop by HERE.
After the interview I had to run back to the hotel and get ready for Marc Cain, one of the biggest fashion shows during Berlin Fashion Week, which was held outside the city centre. With celebrities such as Milla Jovovich and Alessandra Ambrosio, the Marc Cain Spring/Summer 2017 catwalk show promised a variety of summery, tropical and hugely colourful looks for the sunshine season to come. Couture model Antonia Wesseloh as well as Germany’s next topmodel winner Stefanie Giesinger strutted down the runway in stylish frocks and laissez-faire looks that we sure will be seeing on a lot of stylish people next season! After the show it was time to hit the Lascana swim- and underwear presentation in town. An editor friend of mine as well as myself and my baby bump hopped into a cab and made our way to Bikini Berlin, which was, judging by its name, the perfect location for that particular show. After shaking a lot of hands and meeting plenty of people and friends, it was time for baby girl and me to hit the cushion as a big and busy day was ahead of us tomorrow.
After waking up around 7am, I grabbed my bikini and did a couple of laps in the amazing pool of Soho house – which by the way is situated on the rooftop terrace! Enjoying a splendid view, it took me no time to finish 60 laps before getting some breakfast and making my way to the following event. Up next was a loft-visit, in which various brands had set up camp. I was able to try out and take a look at everything from shoes over eyebrow kits down to jewellery pieces. As time was running though, I soon made my way back to the hotel, got changed and went on to attend the EDITED the store event! A secret garden get-together, set up behind the stylish Berlin store in Mitte. A live model installation of the brand new EDITED Autumn/Winter 2016/17 collection, drinks, vegan ice cream and yummy kimchi tacos was all there was to see, drink and eat – simply perfect for an evening out during summer. After hours of chit chatting, I jumped, well, let’s rather say “fell” into bed around 11pm, got myself to write some articles, read a magazine and went to sleep.
As the last day of Berlin Fashion Week (well, at least for me) had arrived, it was time to hit the blogger brunch at Nhow Hotel, before making my way to the most anticipated show of the week! Dimitri, short for Dimitrios Panagiotopoulos has been an all time favourite of mine for years! The designs of the 39-year old Greek are mesmerizing to say the least! With an armada of white and gold must-have looks, the Dimitri Spring/Summer 2017 collection was nothing short of an “I must have at least one piece out of this collection-thought! Dimitri simply knows which dresses are most flattering on a woman’s body which is something not every designer likes to pinpoint! With this highlight in mind, I made my way back to the train station…
