Cold and winter during Berlin Fashion Week were no reason to avoid the popular fashion shows and fashion events in Berlin. Time for a review of the Fashion Week in Berlin. Numerous guests, celebrities, journalists, models, photographers and bloggers met again in winter 2016 in Berlin to admire the latest trends and creations of fashion designers at the #MBFWB. This year, the white fashion tent was again in its usual place, directly behind or in front of the Brandenburg Gate.
Already at the big kick-off show of Maybelline #mnymakeithappen the most important influencers of the beauty and fashion industry met. With eye-catching makeups by Maybelline and hairstyles by L’Oréal, the models walked the runway to live music by Graham Candy Music. Overall a great Berlin Fashion Week show with interesting video clips on different curtains.
A show for the people who work backstage all the time and do it a few days before the official Fashion Week to rehearse. If you were interested in the details of the makeups, you could have a close look at the models in the foyer after the show.
Berlin Fashion Week – From Maybelline to Rebekka Ruétz
Alternating between the various Berlin Fashion Week locations Runway, Kronprinzenpalais, Stage and various trade fairs, the many fashion insiders could once again admire the latest creations and fashion highlights in 2016. One by one, different designers showed their fashion. Designers such as. Lena Hoschek, René Storck, Sportalm, Isabell de Hillerin, Marc Cain, Marcel Ostertag, Dawid Tomaszewski, Riani, Lala Berlin, Ester Perbandt, Dorothee Schumacher, Anja Gockel, Laurèl, Kilian Kerner, Guido Maria Kretschmer, Marina Hoermanseder, Dimitri, Ewa Herzog, Holy Ghost, William Fan, Anne Gorke, Irene Luft, Minx by Eva Lutz and Rebekka Ruétz.
Since I was allowed to be among other things at the fashion show and the backstage happenings at Minx by Eva Lutz up close, there are already two separate blogposts about my personal impressions and experiences before and during the fashion show, Front Row included.
There were some Berlin Fashion Week fashion shows that really impressed me as a blogger again. While I was still quite spellbound waiting for the first fashion look with “fringe” to see my own cliché fulfilled, so I saw some looks and styles that I myself would love to wear, but also trends that will pass me by.
Overall, you saw a lot of warm hues in orange. The cuts quite straight and many styles of the 70s. Looking around at the visitors, one had the impression that very few guests had really thought about their look and wanted to stay as warm as possible and look comfortable. At the coat check, you would have had a problem if you described your jacket as “…the one with the (faux) fur collar”. Almost everyone came in their faux fur jackets and warm shoes.
Berlin is nevertheless, as also Sophia Thomalla already noticed, with the Fashionweek still completely different than Paris – while also the guests in Paris or NewYork were accordingly well dressed, there was in Berlin frequently the Jeanslook with bomber jacket – pity Berlin! There is still some style missing… 🙂
This year, by the way, there were bag checks at the Berlin Fashion Week and suitcases were not even allowed into the tent. While one was still worried about how dangerous it could actually be due to the tense situation before the Fashion Week, one forgot this thought as soon as one was in the middle of the action.
In the foyer of the Berlin Fashion Week tent (as soon as one had left the red carpet behind) the car advertisement of Mercedes Benz appealed to me personally beside the other sponsors this year most. Surely this was mostly due to the picture of Natasha Poly in a blue latex dress by Atsuko Kudo.
Also for bloggers there were again the usual side events, like the Fashion Blogger Cafe, the HashMag Bloggerlounge or the Beauty Lounge. If you don’t want to be recognized as a blogger right away, then you shouldn’t take these goodie bags to the next event or fashion show. There was with some bloggers apparently again the famous “hunter & gatherer mentality”. 🙂
Who wants to take time off already to be on site at the next Berlin Fashion Week itself, which can mark the days of 28.06.-01.07.2016 for the summer Fashionweek already in the calendar. My tips for the Fashion Week in Berlin as a blogger I have already summarized for you.
Also the winter has again offered some great shows – I personally particularly liked the shows of Minx by Eva Lutz,Marina Hoermanseder, as well as Dimitri, Marcel Ostertag, Dawid Tomaszewski, Sportalm and Lena Hoschek.
I am already looking forward to the next Fashionweek in Berlin – then fortunately again with warmer temperatures.
