Fashion Week Berlin

A Marvelous Mad-Rush

My week leading up to Berlin Fashion Week could best be described as quite simple a mad-rush. I decided to attend the occasion spontaneously and I was too late for, well basically everything. All hotels were fully booked and more importantly I had no idea what to wear. So, I started frantically packing: 10 outfits, 12 pairs of shoes and almost all my bags. Did I need them all? Of course not, but knowing it was all with me gave me peace of mind. Luckily there was always friendly people at hand to help me carry those heavy suitcases!

I arrived in Berlin, slightly heavyhearted, as I started missing my kids as soon as I left the house. Yet I was so excited to join the Fashion run everyone was talking about. knew Berlin Fashion Week was going to be excitingmy expectations were huge, and thankfully they were exceeded by far. 

The streets of Berlin were even busier than usual. You literally sprint from one show to another (in highheels mind you, and as a result hailing cabs has become second nature to me). In between you change outfits to make sure you’re dressed appropriately for the upcoming occasion. Each event is a new surprise. It’s marvelous, adventurous and inspiring!

The presentations I enjoyed the most were Dawid Tomaszewski’s and Hien Le’s Shows – both are emerging German designers whos creations carry their own recognizable signature yet trigger a moment of surprise with the addition of little unexpected twists. 

My absolute Fashion Week highlight was the literally dazzling “Vogue Salon Soirée – a great presentation platform and grand finale of a remarkable project that seeks to promote young and upcoming talent. Premium magazine VOGUE teamed up with the world-renowned crystal producer SWAROVSKI to support aspiring young designers. I had the honor to be invited and write an article about this sparkling show from a Fashion blogger’s point of view. It is published here on SWAROVSKI’s Crystal Blog.

Long story short: My time at Fashion Week Berlin was aextraordinarily unique experience. Was it crazy? Absolutely! But in the best sense of the word. I found tons of inspiration, better yet, I met the most amazing like-minded people whom I felt connected with immediately – and to be honest that’s the best part of my job!
