The Shit: Lena, Bonnie & Laura
You’ve already had a look behind the scenes of Bonnie Strange‘s first big The Shit fashion show. And now I’m finally giving you the photos of the big party and the show. It was the most fun event during Berlin Fashion Week, thanks to Bonnie’s cheeky Fuck You! attitude. I guess all pseudo-serious and boring fashion journalists who laid eyes on the daring collection that was dominated by lycra, plush, pleather and the colors neon pink, green and yellow must have died inside a little, haha! To me this was exactly what a show must be like: Lots of fun! And I love it when a designer actually has a sense of humor – you never get to see this in Berlin. If you want to see the looks of the show head over to Glamcanyon. To see the party head over the jump and enjoy!
On Saturday multi-talent Bonnie Strange invited me over to the preparation of her very first self-organized fashion show for her brand new label The Shit to take some photos in the backstage area before the show. I must say, I am deeply impressed by how great she and her team put such a big event together in such a short time. Cudos, Bonnie! After the jump you’ll find many colorfull impressions and animations from the production as part of our Behind the scenes of Fashion Week series. Enjoy the fun on 3 pages and stay tuned for the photos of the show and the party that will be released tomorrow.

Last night was a very exciting night for my friend Gina and me. Our 9th Designer Scouts event took place in the oversized studio of our friend Julia from JULIAANDBEN. When I first stepped into this space it instantly gave me a feeling of excitement: Apart from it’s perfect size and build-up it had such an amazingly positive and creative vibe (probably some left-over Karma from the gallery that was in here before Julia moved in) that I instantly thought: We have to do a runway show in here. We haven’t actually done any runway since the good old days when we started the Designer Scouts project at HBC about two years ago. What a long journey we’ve had since then: installations, fashion presentations, exhibitions, fashion films, swap markets and what not. But in the end it was clear: The ultimate ritual of fashion is the runway show. My recap and the impressions after the jump.
This Thursday at 21h the young and wild accessory label AN!MAL will present their new collection with a fashion presentation and fashion film screening at the projektGalerie Pop-Up Shop at Gormannstr. 25 in Mitte. Last week director Emilio El-Lauren invited me to the set of the film to take a look behind the scenes and make some impressions of the filming process. I got to see a lot of hot girls in skimpy leather outfits playing kittens and crawling on the floor. The one dominant impression of the set apart from the kittens was smoke – and I can’t tell you if it was from the fact almost everyone on set was smoking or if it was just the smoke machine. Have a look behind the curtain of this production for the Berlin Fashion Week. More to come…

I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WEAR!!! Seriously, I have no idea what I am gonna wear next week. Not a single outfit. Somehow I have neglected to go shopping in the past few months. My wallet is grateful, but I am in horror of those moments I need to get dressed to leave the house for the coming week.
My mundane problems aside, once again we have selected the most interesting – and most importantly: public – events, shows and parties of the upcoming Berlin Fashion Week. We also added a couple of events that are closed, but that we are raffling off tickets for in our big Berlin Fashion Week Ticket Packages. Have a look at the best of Berlin Fashion Week after the jump. And don’t forget to get your outfits sorted…
All the fashion blogs, magazines and PR agencies are abuzz with the upcoming Berlin Fashion Week that will kick of next Tuesday.

Thanks to our friends at Louis Vuitton we are once again able to stream their upcoming Paris Fashion Show live here on iHeartBerlin. This time it’s the womenswear collection we’re showing and it starts today at 10h in the morning. So don’t miss it!
For those of you who are in Paris right now we recommend the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs Exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs that will open on Friday March 9th, 2012. Find out more about the exhibition here. The live stream of the fashion show is right after the jump.
We really want to say thanks to Who’s Next Paris to let us experience these amazing 5 days in Paris. We finally had the chance to check out Paris Fashion Week, see the shows of our fav Bernhard Willhelm as well as Walter van Beirendonck and Damir Doma, dance at the fabulous Flash Cocotte party, meet some great young designers at the Who’s Next fair and browse through giant vintage mountains. All things we just loved. We also had some really weird and funny experience. We saw a crazy and very entertaining catwalk fashion musical at Who’s Next, we met some giant vampire drag queens at Place de la Concorde and found a little hotel with an antique harp in the attic. So beautiful and strange! See all impressions of our lovely trip after the jump.
It was a little bit the highlight of our trip to Paris: the Autumn Winter 2012/13 fashion show of Bernhard Willhelm who happens to be one of my favorite designers since I saw his great installation presentation in Berlin in 2009. We also saw the shows of Walter van Beirendonck, that we also liked a lot, as well as Damir Doma who gave a very impressive runway show. But the Willhelm show made me particularily happy because it was also the most enjoyable collection in recent saisons and I’m looking forward to see it in the shops. Enjoy my partly animated runway photos after the jump.
Saturday is the perfect day for flea markets. But with today’s rainy weather the Toast & Jam was the perfect alternative. The Vintage Fashion Fair took place for the first time ever in these last three days. Fashion, furniture and accessories from various decades are for sale and finest Vintage Couture pieces are on offer next to no-name knitted jumpers. Exberliner magazine and Nowkoelln Flowmarkt initiated the Vintage Fashion Market and promise: „Bygone trends will be rediscovered.“ Anne Poprausch, winner of the Vintage Smackdown, was one of the 30 selected sellers „I am thrilled“ she told us „ I didn’t think the Bread & Butter crowd would come to see us, but the two worlds actually mixed. I’d definitely do it again, if I’m invited!“
And we´ll certainly come back. Because instead of wasting the day going from one place to the other, we loved having more time to browse! Check all info about the sellers, party and of course all our photos after the Jump.
