At this year’s Berlin Fashion Week Lena Hoschek really showed us her edgy side! Her much loved flower prints and petticoats were paired with heavy boots and broke tights. This way, she emphazied both the soft and the tough side of women. The Frida-Kahlo-hairdos of the models were just enchanting. A feast for the eyes was also the great variety of the material such as brocade, lace, satin and velvet. Additionally, the collection showed a Russian influence; the traditional folkloristic patterns were mixed with the sexy, glamourous cuts that the designer is known for. My favourite pieces were a red velvet dress, the evening gowns with deep necklines showing the back and the embroidered blouses. Some of the looks after the jump.
If fashion week is war, runway is the battlefield. And I did a good portion of fights last week to go to each event and make sure that everybody noticed that I was there. Is this egomanic? I do’t think so. To see all my adventures at Berlin Fashion Week and to see the shows I visited and enjoyed the most (Patrick Mohr, Moga e Mago, The Shit, Lena Hoschek, Mark Stone and the best of them all Charlie Le Mindu) please have a look at the third episode called Runway after the jump.
Dont Shoot The Messengers
While putting together the new event guide for the upcoming week I sort of got an overdose of Christmas markets and sales. There are once again plenty! Well I have all my presents together already, but have you? Luckily this week gets mixed up with some fashion related events. Phew! More events after the break.

Berlin Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2010 – Review Part 1
The shows of Lena Hoschek und Smeilinener were a mixture of exactly my taste and style, that’s why they were so much fun for me during the Berlin Fashion Week.
At Smeilinener’s show Vive la fete I saw so many colorful shades, it was a pleasure! The music of the band by the same name played live for the show, the blonde singer barely sang, but rather made funny noises to the beat. I especially loved the necklaces (or tops?) made of ribbons, in all the colors of the rainbow. More impressions after the jump.
