Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin 2011

Tags , ,

Despite the damned hot weather, I went to Berlin last weekend to hurl myself into the fairly large crowd of crazy fashion people at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. To sum up, I can say that it was definitely worth it! Most of all, the Starstyling show at Bebelplatz stood out. The show really put a spell on me! Under the name of “Anti Avanti“, the designers Kai and Katja presented their wonderful Spring/Summer collection 2011. The collection “Anti Avanti“ is inspired by a gemstone called Achat, which is seen in the prints and the accessories of the collection. “Anti Avanti“ is a series of t-shirt variations, which were designed in a variety of ways. All styles were combined with manifold pieces made of jeans pieces like jackets, skirts, bags, hand and foot decorations. I am totally crazy about all the flashy pieces, the holographic foil, the colourful fringes and all the bright, loud colours that were used!

As an extra accessory, the models wore reshaped G-Shock watches. In cooperation with G-Shock, Starstyling designed their own watch edition composed of 20 designs with individual arranged Starstyling watchstraps. So, it was really worth it dropping by the Bebelplatz to watch the show in spite of the unbearable heat!

Besides the Starstyling show, the projektGALERIE really impressed me. This year, I was pleasantly surprised by performances, which were realized in a black box theatre. There were designers such as Nils Dunkel, superated and van reimersdahl who presented their spring/summer collections 2011 as performances in a black box with two stages.
