“Guten Tag” from Germany! Berlin Fashion Week started on Tuesday, January 15th and lasted till this weekend. It was great being a part of it and now we’d love to share with you some pictures of the fashion presentations we went to.
Have a look at some of the latest collections from Berlin Fashion Week:
Franziska Michael Fall/Winter 2013
The young German designer Franziska Michael from Kreuzberg was inspired by the topic “contrast” in her latest Fall/Winter 2013/14 collection. Contrasts such as “liquid” to “hard”, “colorful” to “plain” was her emphasis. After studying fashion design in Berlin, Michael founded her namesake fashion label in 2009 and is mostly inspired by the extrem of art, architecture and nature in her designs.
BARRE NOIRE Fall/Winter 2013
What started as a young design duo’s dream come true, the label BARRE NOIRE has now as of 2012 only Timm Süssbrich at the helm of the brand. His collections are now more mature and the combination of his relaxed and elegant styles are not only seen in sophisticated business looks but also on the streets of Berlin. His motto: everyday-casual-chic!
1913 Berlin Fall/Winter 2013
It’s all about cashmere when it comes to Yujia Zhai-Petrow, founder and creative designer of the fashion label 1913 Berlin by Yujia. As a native German but located in London, she successfully combined youthful sportiness with sophisticated elegance for edgy and luxurious women’s and men’s clothes.
We’ve decided to feature these 3 German fashion designers since we really liked their presentation the most. While Berlin might not be one of the “four” famoust fashion metropoles, it is absolutely rising in the ranks and media. You will find a lot of unusual and avant garde fashion designs from even more creative designers. It is definitely so interesting to watch how the city is becoming more and more important to the industry.
