First own fashion show – Fashion Week Finals Berlin

As a guest at a fashion show, theatre play, concert or similar, you hardly notice anything about the backstage area. Behind the scenes a lot happens in the last minutes before the event. In 2019 Cocaine Models in cooperation with FIV Magazin and Haubentaucher Berlin organized the last Berlin Fashion Week Show with the following Aftershow Party. Starting with the location and equipment, models and designers, up to music and catering, employees and invitations. A task you have to grow into first. We interviewed our team member Dilara after the exciting weeks and asked her to organize, plan and realize a fashion show.

Fashion Week Finals – Fashion Show Planning

CM: Dear Dilara, the exhausting weeks are over. Despite the rain the show was a great success and the invited guests were satisfied. Looking back, what was this experience like for you?

Dilara: As soon as I start to review everything, I first notice what we have achieved in the shortest time. It went differently and even better. I can’t thank the team enough for helping me so much in those stressful moments! For having planned everything in such a short time, it was a complete success. The next shows can only get better.

CM: How did it all work out? Who organized what?

Dilara: Well, if you ask me, we all worked through everything. It would be wrong to say that was my job and that was his job. I would even say, I was thrown into the cold water but it was a lot of fun! First of all we, the main organizers, made contact by phone and wrote down the general ToDo’s. These points were still relatively well distributed. In Berlin we worked together for two weeks on the spot every day with meetings and office time.

CM: The ToDo’s, how did you work them out? Or did you have a ready-made plan that you could simply work through?

Dilara: It would have been nice but no we didn’t. As a private person we simply asked ourselves: What do you need for a fashion show? Of course, we didn’t think of everything in the first moment. But many points simply build on each other.

CM: How did you come up with the location?

Dilara: I’ve been taking part in the Berlin Fashion Week for 2 years now and have always had fun. But I don’t find the E Werk as a FW location so exciting after the second or third day. With the Great Crested Grebe we simply got one of the most exclusive event locations in Berlin. The catwalk on the pool was simply perfect and fitted well to the designers of Nil & Mon and LinArt Project.

CM: What kind of fashion week planning is the A&O?

Dilara: You should be able to work spontaneously, creatively and organized. All three components work together in the end, of course, but everyone in the team is important and should be able to complete their tasks independently. And if there is a problem – then you get creative! Communication within the team is also incredibly important. If problems arise 2 hours before the start of the show, which could have been solved much earlier, everyone in the team is stressed. Just to avoid that, you can talk about everything and discuss little things at any time.

CM: So you’ve already worked in event management. There are also a lot of instructions on the Internet. But what distinguishes the Fashion Week Finals?

Dilara: Fashion Week is the event of the year for those interested in fashion. Everywhere designers, stylists, actors, models, magazines and the press travel to see what’s trendy this year and report. The pressure to present a good show is correspondingly high. I think you shouldn’t work completely according to instructions. Of course the structure is the most important thing, but you should get along with spontaneous ideas and changes in the last minutes.

CM: Can you list once – what did you mainly take care of?

Dilara: The accreditation and guest list with the seat coordination was definitely a lot of work. As a model agency we did an open casting for models before and were able to win some more boys and girls for the show. Since I was in daily contact with the designers, I took on extra sponsorships. For example, I organized accessories and make-up sponsors, all of course on WIN WIN situation. We are definitely looking forward to new projects, more fashion shows!

CM: It was a complete success and we wish you a lot of fun!

Chanel, Gucci & Versace – Fashion Shows of the Most Luxurious Designers

Chanel, Gucci, Versace and many more. The world knows these great designers and each time again they inspire at the Fashion Week and numerous other fashion events with their unique fashion shows. Sometimes with an impressive backdrop, other times with incredible outfits that steal the show from every backdrop. We’ve picked out the best shows that have left us speechless in the editorial department.

How do you plan a fashion show? Read more here: Fashion Show Agency.

Saint Laurent Fashion Show Autumn/Winter 2019

As expected, the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent, whose name is on everyone’s lips and his logo (YSL) is known worldwide, plunges us into a new world. With a giant mirror in which the models are mirrored and the lights shine up and down, he lets us dive into a kind of illusion. The colours of his clothes are black and grey. Long coats and fancy dresses with glowing elements remind us of diamonds.
The location changes and the music becomes more calming. Black light and neon glowing design run across the catwalk. It seems as if the dresses magically run over the carpet themselves.

A colourful fashion show with Jacquemus Spring 2020

The fashion show by Simon Porte Jacqemus, the French designer and founder of the fashion label Jacquemus, will thrill you with its flowery location. His models present his Spring collection on a catwalk that makes its way through a lavender field. The invited guests all sit on the edge of the front row of the show. The colours really describe the Spring theme, the colours blossom. You have the feeling of flower power in your head. He mixes a casual style with something chic and makes the clothes for it accessible to everyone.

Gucci Fall/Winter Fashion Show in Gold

The Italian fashion designer pulls out all the stops. Strikingly coloured garments and rivets, accessories such as golden ears, huge gold chains and long fur bowls magically attract the eyes of guests. The catwalk, which looks like luxurious marble and the golden lights, elevates the models on the runway into a royal sphere, as does the brand’s almost royal reputation among luxury brands. Gucci again shows that the size of his name is not unfounded. The colors of the fashion show don’t remind of Fall or Winter.

The Cruise – a time travel with Chanel

Chanel the luxury brand badly, invites the guests into a journey into the past. The location is reminiscent of a train station from the 80s. Get ready, Chanel will bring trousers back on the market with a long blow – only more elegant. The show is varied from grey to bright pink. Chanel also offers a wide and extensive range of accessories. From simple jewellery that hardly attracts attention to giant blue ribbons, the show offers a wide spectrum and many possible combinations. There is something for every taste. Chanel is proud of her name and shows us how timeless a design can be.

Versace Fall Fashion Show

It wouldn’t be Versace if you didn’t have a giant staple with her logo on it right in front of the catwalk. Versace remains faithful to his design, which the first model directly wears the well-known golden patterns on her dress. But also other outfits show this design. Golden details are a must-have for Versace. Famous models like Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid adorn the catwalk of Versace. Donnatella Versace remains true to her style. The location has a nearly 8 kind form, the guests are so distributed that there are hardly 2 rows. One has the feeling to be close to the model. The colours are daring, but Donnatella manages to create an outfit out of two biting colours that looks luxurious.

Anna K Runaway Fashion Show Fall / Winter

Directly the first model that came out showed me that Anna likes to work with other fabrics and has different ideas. Her transparent tops are extraordinary but still stylish. The looks she presents will attract the attention of the younger target groups of the fashion world. Their looks are not too unusual but different. Some of their looks are provocative but could become more appealing in the fashion world, especially with it-girls. The location is very simple, the colours are bluish.

Dior Fall/Winter Show 2019

An elderly lady opens the show in Italian, a slightly different kind of opening. The show takes place in a white-red chequered location. The style seems to have its muse in the past. Long skirts, chequered coats and hats covering the faces of the models seem to float over the catwalk. We from CM can see the details live in the first row. Sometimes a small clutch, then a handbag or rather a backpack. Dior doesn’t think much of clichés. Green seems to be the next fad. A colour that not everyone has in their wardrobe. But after the show I could imagine that many will change their mind.

Valentino Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2019/2020

Valentino invites us to a beautiful winter garden. The autumn/winter collection is presented by the models in coats and long robes, while the weather is wonderfully warm. If I had to describe the collection in one word, it would be ordinary. The style is for fashion-conscious buyers who also like to draw attention to themselves and put on an evening gown that might not be suitable for everyone. Valentino surprises with many different patterns and cuts. A small highlight are the expressive headdresses that the models wear on the catwalk. Also Gigi Hadid belongs to one of the well-known faces, which decorate the catwalk. An applause to Valentino, suitable location, suitable models and beautiful dresses. We are enthusiastic about the collection and the location.

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2019/ 2020

Leather and long black leather boots draw our attention to the models on the catwalk. It couldn’t be more rocky. McQueen shows how stylish boots go with an elegant dress. Metallic coloured necklaces and earrings round off the Rockers style. Also the walk of the models is rather harder, the look strict. Leather jackets and leather distinguish the collection. Chequered and striped suits are once again becoming trendy here. But also pompous dresses are put into the right light by McQueen. For the location, the designer relies on a simple catwalk to set the point of view on the collection.

Givenchy Autumn/Winter 2019/ 2020

The motto of the first collection is Women’s Ready-To-Wear of the show and immediately it becomes clear what is meant. Women in long coats and blazers with wide shoulders will probably be a new one again. Givenchy also offers men a wide range of choices. The style is very simple, but still a little extravagant. The belt bag does not only fit to everyday clothes, Givenchy shows here. Also the belt on the coat looks very promising. Very important for the men: turtleneck and coat appear more and more on the catwalk. So if you want to wear the latest trend in winter, take a look at Givenchy.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring/ Summer 2019

Before the fashion show begins we are spellbound by the unique location. A huge golden wall with four mirrors reminds of the royal house. The catwalk in royal blue stretches out in front of it. For the eyes a spectacle, for the colour technique hardly a colour is omitted here. From golden suits to brightly coloured shirts and shorts, everything is on offer here. Mokkasins and private label sneakers are worn here to match the clothing. Cropped trousers are a must-have in every man’s wardrobe. Dolce & Gabbana’s collection creates a new fashion awareness for all generations and for many tastes. We at CM were delighted to have been at the Dolce& Gabbana Show.

Last time in Berlin #BFW @ House of Weekend

Linn: Dolce & Gabbana in Milan – Lifestyle of an international model #Interview

Just last year that our Linn walked for Dolce & Gabbana over the catwalk in Milan and had an exciting shooting for Moschino. Now our Natascha met with Linn to ask her a few questions about her experiences with us and various things about the world of modeling. How she stays in shape as a model, what she can advise you to do when you start modeling and how such a high fashion show works. In addition, more cool information from the everyday life of a model is waiting for you in this exclusive interview.

The Interview (German)

IVANMAN – Menswear at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019

Men’s fashion to marvel at – Ivanman inspires again. Like every year, Ivan Mandžukić redefines men’s fashion with his unusual designs and unusual cuts. We watched his show live and are thrilled by the precision of his work.

Ivanman – fancy men’s fashion

The Berlin-based label Ivanman was founded in 2010 by designer Ivan Mandžukić . The graduate of the ESMOD Academy for Fashion Design founded the Ivanman brand with the aim of creating a combination of classic and avant-garde men’s fashion. The fashion label Ivanman sees fashion as a social phenomenon, analyzes it through deconstruction, examines its individual parts and then reassembles them in textile form. The result is a men’s fashion reduced to a minimalist style, characterised by sharp wearability. Simple but expressive details give the collection its special characteristics. The foundation of the Ivanman brand is a classic and modest fit. By adapting the details during the development process, fashion becomes a portable avant-garde collection. Yet the looks never seem to have been deliberately deconstructed. Currently, the Ivanman collections consist mainly of menswear and accessories, complemented by a few feminine looks.

Ivanman at the MBFW 2019

Loyal to its city, IVANMAN 2019 presents its collections on the catwalks of the Berlin fashion scene. Unlike most other shows, Ivanman is not a typical runway, but a pedestal in the middle of the crowd, where the different pieces with geometric cuts and bright colors are in focus. The models were discreetly styled to keep the focus on the clothes, but we can confirm that Ivanman’s new collection is hard to keep an eye on.

Ivanman at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019

#MBFW2019 – Lena Hoschek at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019

It’s the time of the year again – Lena Hoschek will be joining us with her autumn/winter collection at the Fashion Week in the German capital Berlin. We watched the show live and are thrilled. Also this year Hoschek inspired with their unique designs.

Fashion with humor – Hoschek’s philosophy

Lena Hoschek is mainly inspired by the Hollywood stars of the 40s and 50s. Hoschek finds it exciting and interesting how the sex symbols of the 40s and 50s went through life with humor and didn’t take themselves as seriously as they do today. According to Hoschek, Maryln Monroe, Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida are the most attractive women of all time, not only because of their looks, but also because of their incomparable personality, which is pure inspiration for Lena Hoschek. The spectrum of her fashion is very broad. Dresses, skirts, blouses, trousers, traditional costumes, pyjamas, glasses and other accessories are created and launched twice a year. Her customers include pop star Katy Pery and Charlotte Roche.

Lena Hoschek – Autumn/Winter collection 2019 at the MBWF

Lena Hoschek will present her collections for the first time in Berlin in 2010. A mixture of femininity and sex appeal remind visitors of the 50s. Today she is known as the ambassador of femininity and along with other fashion designers, her collections are always fresh and cheerful. The catwalk of the models is decorated with oriental patterns. Lena Hoschek comes on stage satisfied at the end and is applauded from all sides! A good finish for the young designer.

Danny Reinke Fashion Week 2019- From fisherman’s son to fashion designer

Danny Reinke comes from a line of fishermen. His father and great-grandfather were already fishermen, instead of continuing these traditions he broke the family traditions and that with success. Today known as an international star designer. At the MBFW we also went live to see his autumn/winter collection.

The first designer of the family

At the age of 6 he learned from his father how to use a sewing machine. This to continue the family traditions of the fisherman, but Denny Reinke had other plans. When he discovered fashion, his plans were clear – he wants to go high and create fashion. Instead of investing his time at a business school to study economics, he moved to Hannover to learn fashion design and ladies tailoring.

His first collection

In his final collection, he was inspired by the family business of fishing. At first his father was very sceptical about his son’s plans, but a look at his work changed his mind. Together they finished a sweater on ropes. The tulle dresses of the collection were anything but the typical dress of a princess, but had a very modern look, which he still retains today. Elaborate pearl embroideries transformed basics such as nude longsleeves and black bomber jackets into spectacular eye-catchers, because the motifs were mythical mythical mythical creatures in darkly dazzling colours. A touch of grunge and gothic blew through the designs from “Tempting Beast” without portraying the wearers as marginal figures of society. This fashion is well-dosed extravagance and wearable without being ordinary.

Danny Reinke at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019

The Autumn/Winter 2019/2019 collection is all about women, with tulle weaving techniques as the core element to remind us of his fishing family. The woman is shown as a “divine being”. Inspired by the #MeToo movement, this year he also convinces all fashion lovers of the Fashionweek 2019 in Berlin. Another characteristic of this year’s autumn/winter collection are blouses in silver brocade and pastel tulle. The blouses and trousers are embroidered with pearls and copper pencils in elaborate handicraft. We were thrilled to see this show live.

Marcel Ostertag x Fashion Week 2019

Marcel Ostertag, who studied at the renowned Central St. Martin College in London, founded his eponymous label Marcel Ostertag in 2006. With 16 shows presented at the Fashion Week in Berlin, it is an integral part of the MBFW. We were live again this year and were amazed by his show, like every year.

Marcel Ostertag – The Primeval Rock of Fashion Week

Marcel Ostertag is both maker and brand. Inspired by the streets of Munich and the special flair of the Viktualienmarkt, Marcel Ostertag designs his collections in his studio in the Gärtnerplatz quarter, which are produced exclusively in Germany. In his collections, however, the designer does not only pay attention to optics. It is very important to him that the person who wears his designs also feels comfortable. For this reason, he regularly visits fabric fairs so that he can guarantee good wearing comfort.

What does Marcel Ostertag stand for?

Love is in the details, says Ostertag. This is exactly what the designer wants to implement. Through details his collections should be timeless, preferably eternal. The designer himself says that his target group is not necessarily the rich and beautiful, but anyone who loves and appreciates quality and pays attention to details. It is important that your customers care about wearing things that only a few others wear.

Autumn/Winter 2019 at the Berlin Fashion Week

Like every year, Ostertag proved itself this year at the Fashion Week 2019 in Berlin. Made of matt rosé shiny sequins on a short pendant, he styles a rough turtleneck sweater in olive green and adds metallic buckles to the coarse, orange-coloured straps of the dress. His talent for material combination, which can hardly be surpassed, he simply proves again and again. We were enthusiastic about the production and are looking forward to the next Fashion Week to be inspired by him.

Rebekka Ruétz – How she rocks the Berlin Fashion Week 2019

Rebekka Ruétz has done it again. Like every year she convinces with her unconventional and extravagant creations.  Since 2010 Rebekka Ruétz has been inspiring the fashion world every year at the Berlin Fashion Week with her expressive outfits – made for the modern Amazon.

Ruétz and her fashion

Ruétz mode is characterized by unequal connections.  Lush textures, twisted layers, as well as decorative and extravagant designs provide a recognition value. The colour palette of her creations is also very versatile. From peacock green to moss green. Night blue and underwater turquoise to plenty of reddish brown, bordeaux, autumn orange, amber, gold and silver as well as dirty beige and black.  A skilful combination of basics and extraordinary material compositions provide each time again for tension.  The designer started her relevant training at the Innsbruck Fashion Ferrari School. Then came the Academy for Fashion & Design in Munich, where she graduated as Best Graduate and “Cognos Relevance Award” winner. She gained experience in India and with designer Peter Pilotto in London. Since the label “rebekka ruétz” was founded in Innsbruck in 2009, she has stood on her own feet professionally. Rebekka Ruetz, born in 1984, has conquered markets in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland with her label of the same name.

Rebekka Ruétz at the Fashionweek Berlin 2019

It gets dark, loud rock music sounds through the loudspeakers – finally it starts. We were there when Rebekka Ruétz presented her autumn/winter collection 2019/2020 at the Fashionweek Berlin and are thrilled. The combination of basics with extravagant and exciting details is once again a success. Unusual belts and cords adorned the outfits and told an exciting story about the designer’s view of the world. The viewer feels surrounded by an imaginary cloud full of charm and charisma. At the same time, however, it takes us into a modern, real world that is inharmonic, moody and mysterious. It’s hard to turn the gaze away from the show, every outfit is unique in its kind. We can hardly wait to see what Rebekka Ruétz has in store for us at the next Fashionweek.

Kilian Kerner is back – KXXK at MBFW 2019

After 3 years of silence Kilian Kerner is back at Fashion Week Berlin after the bankruptcy of his label.  We were there when he presented all his 34 looks at Berlin’s E-Werk. Within a short time he has completed the 80 parts and is ready for the MBFW 2019.

Kilian Kerner is back under the name KXXK

Designer Kilian Kerner decided at short notice to take part in the Fashion Week. Without the pressure of having to pay 50 employees and investors telling him when to finish what, he presents his recovered “I” at MBFW2019. It is important to know that his label is not KXXK but still Kilian Kerner and that should remain so, says designer Kilian Kerner. He’s happy to be free to work as he pleases now. When he wants to take a vacation, he takes a vacation. The fashion world does not get rid of Kilian so quickly, because he loves his work, he loves the pressure to perform and he loves to show who he is. We are happy to be able to witness his comeback live.

KXXK Autumn/Winter 2019

Kilian Kerner celebrated his big comeback at the Fashion Week 2019 in Berlin. The outfits and music made us experience the city life on the runway. An exciting and colourful mix of looks ran across the catwalk and provided a varied and exciting show. At the end Kilian Kerner jumped personally on the catwalk with 2 models on his hands – the joy was written in his face. The audience raved and the fashion world took him back with open arms.

The show by Kilian Kerner – city life at the Berlin Fashionweek 2019

Irene Luft – Dark Paradise at the #MBFW

Irene Luft is already an established name in the fashion industry. At this year’s Fashion Week Berlin, she will once again be convincing with the theme “Dark Paradise”. We were there live for you and let Irene show us the dark side of the fashion world.

First Germanys Next Topmodel, then Fashion Week

Irene Luft founded her label of the same name in 2008. One year later she was already allowed to design a collection for the 4th season of the TV production Germanys Next Topmodel, which was then presented by the young models in the show. Since then, the luxury prêt-à-porter brand has inspired the catwalks of the world. The brand’s signature is its modern yet hard-to-define, feminine and romantic style with a touch of progressiveness.

Irene celebrates great success

After completing her studies at the Academy for Fashion and Design in Munich, she founded her own brand. Shortly after, the big breakthrough. Their originality and strong personality are reflected in the breathtaking dresses. By processing noble and expensive fabrics into fashion suitable for everyday use, they have attracted the attention of many great personalities. Her loyal customers include Franziska Knuppe, Verona Pooth and Viktoria Lauterbach. Irene Luft also has customers in the United Arab Emirates.

Irene air autumn/winter 2019 at the MBFW

The dark side of Fashion Week – Irene Luft presents us “Dark Paradise”. Under this name, the various items of clothing run across the catwalk.  Noble dresses with black lace, long gloves on which fringes are stuck with coloured accents let it appear elegant and noble. The make-up is selected to match the outfits. Light skin with black accents on the eyes and white contact lenses that give the overall look a certain “horror look”. We think it was more than just a show, Irene Luft gave us an experience with Dark Paradise.

Amesh at #MBFW2019

Finally it’s time, the first show is over and we were right at the front for you. The start for a promising fashion week at Berlin’s E-Werk was made by designer Amesh Wijesekera from Sri Lanka. We were thrilled and have the highlights for you.

Who is Amesh Wijesekera?

Amesh Wijesekera had his big breakthrough as an international fashion star in 2016, winning the Graduate Fashion Week London’s International catwalk competition at London Fashion Week and attracting the attention of the world. The designer from Sri Lanka. Shines through his unique love for textiles and colour, which he brings to life with the help of talented tailors from his homeland. Handcrafted in batik mixed with unique, digital technology make for an incredible eye-catcher.

Amesh 2019

Also at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019 Amesh was thrilled again. His outfits inspire like every year anew. The mixture of masculine and feminine outfits has attracted attention. Men were also allowed to radiate a touch of feminism in fashion. Bright pink tops with fur elements and matching flare pants with orange stripes are not the first thing that comes to mind in men’s fashion. However, Amesh makes sure that it still comes across well and convincingly. Another core element of Amesh’s fashion is knitwear. Again and again we see combinations of knitwear, fur and crazy prints, which almost give you a space feeling.

Stefanie Giesinger at Amesh

With a talent like Amesh, of course the celebrities must not be missing. In the front row was the international top model Stefanie Giesinger, who showed her great enthusiasm for the unique looks. The surprise was written in her face, she doesn’t see anything like it every day. Especially the last piece convinced Stefanie and us. Two gold outfits that ran together. 2 men, hand in hand with flowers sewn to the clothes for a particularly feminine feeling. An outfit that radiates acceptance and tolerance. We are curious to see what Fashion Week has in store for us.

Dolce & Gabbana is one of the largest high fashion companies. Dolce & Gabbana was founded by Domenico Dolce, born 1958 and Stefano Gabbana, born 1962 in Milan. Dolce & Gabbana’s first international recognition came in particular from Madonna, who accompanied the high fashion brand for many years. The two fashion designers designed more than 1500 costumes.

In the 90s the duo further expanded their position, among other things with perfume, which has been awarded as the best women’s fragrance of the year. Dolce & Gabbana has evolved ever since and has worked with many artists including Beyonce and Kylie Minogue. Dolce & Gabbana now includes not only the main line, but also the Alta Moda, as well as Dolce & Gabbana Junior.

Dolce & Gabbana offers its customers not only first-class fabrics and designs of the highest quality, but also lifestyle and luxury. With this mix, the brand has been convincing since its inception and continues to develop. The fashion shows are among the most coveted in the world, so once again big applause for our Linn and her first Dolce & Gabbana fashion show!

Berlin Fashion Week: Shows, Dates and… Invitation?

Soon it will be time again and all model agencies and models will meet again in Berlin! The Fashionweek is coming up and invites to the big summer party. For a week, the German capital is turning back into a fashion Mecca. Many know the big shows of German designers from fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle or Harper’s Bazaar. Away from the mainstage there is also much else to discover, e.g. the Berlin Fashion Salon. But also the meeting places of the Be-to-Be economy. What does that mean? But let’s start with the basics!

+ Berlin + Munich + Cologne | Model Castings in February 2019

Why is Berlin Fashion Week?

Fashion changes so fast! Almost every month there is a new collection and new parts hang in the shop windows in the city centres, and there are always new highlights in online shops. All big chains but also all boutiques have to get their clothes from somewhere. Usually you visit a designer and look at the clothes in the showroom. Showrooms are therefore also one of the most frequent jobs for young models. Here you present the designer’s new fashion collections directly to the body, in front of a small audience, with only designers, someone from marketing and the customer. The customer can view the cuts directly, but also the fits and materials. Of course this way is relatively complex, because every single boutique owner has to come to the customer, needs a single appointment, a model and so there is a lot of effort. Berlin Fashion Week has exhibition halls with various themes, trend fashions, wedding fashions and oversizes. Hundreds of designers and producers position themselves at every trade fair. For one week trade visitors can inform themselves here about the latest collections and pieces. You can not only see the individual samples live, but also models who can present individual parts are booked on each stand. This is the main business of Berlin Fashion Week!

Fashion Designers Meet Customers

From the prêt-à-porter to the curvy, customers will find everything they need for their fashion boutiques and shops. Berlin will thus occupy the trends in German fashion boutiques for a few weeks. Of course, not only boutiques stop by, larger fashion chains also send their scouts out to discover trends. Hundreds of designers are lined up next to each other on each stand at each trade fair. There is a lot to discover here, i.e. fabrics and cuts that have been separated but also completely new ideas as well as Function Wear. The fashion industry never stands still and that’s why we meet for Fashion Week, whether in London, Paris, Milan, New York or Berlin to discover the latest trends. And when you meet, there are always others, of course. YouTube, Instagram Stars, Press, Stars and Starlets. For one week, the Who’s Who of the fashion and media world will meet in Berlin.

How many fashion shows are there at Berlin Fashion Week?

There are two different sections among the various fashion shows. One stage deals with the main shows. This is where the great German designers meet to present their new collections to a large audience. Not only normal guests are invited to these fashion shows, but also VIPs, YouTuber, Instagramer, press representatives and stars as well as actors, footballers or even musicians. On this mainstage there are usually eight shows per day over 5 days. From Monday to Friday you have the possibility to have a look at the new collections. On Saturday there will also be a big highlight, the audience and the tickets are of course strictly limited and not for sale.

In addition to the main stage, there are also 2.3 side stages where there are smaller shows by young designers. These include, for example, the Berlin Fashion Salon, where you can particularly look forward to new designers. That’s why there is also the Ethical Fashion Show. It runs parallel to the mainstage for 5 days and shows in particular fashion labels that focus on sustainability. These are the two different areas, the mainstage and the different side stages.

How to get tickets for Berlin Fashion Week?

It’s extremely hard to get tickets for the mainstage, of course designers prefer Instagram Stars or Youtuber, who can report directly and directly about the collections. Press representatives and magazines are increasingly receding into the background, but also stars and VIPs. If you want a ticket, you need good contacts and a contact person at the respective designer or his advertising or PR agency. But it is very difficult to get such tickets!

For the other side shows of Berlin Fashion Week it is also difficult to get tickets but a little easier. For example, if you have an Instagram account with at least 40,000 or 50,000 fans, you can get one or two tickets. The magic word here is accreditation. However, you should take care of it early, as well you should only try if you have something to offer in exchange for the coveted places.
How many people are at a fashion show in Berlin?

The tickets are of course strictly limited, so there is not much space. That is clear but how little space actually? The main show of Berlin Fashion Week usually comprises a maximum of 150 people. Each show can now accommodate 150 guests. This sounds like a lot of space at first, if you count sponsors, people from the team or partners, as well as buyers who buy larger quantities, then only 100 seats are left. These 100 places have to be distributed to stars you work with, instagramers you already work with, model agencies provide the models and so on! In the end there may be 80 tickets left for the invitation, for the whole of Germany but also for international guests.

So the space conditions are very tight, on the side stages it often gets even tighter. In the Berlin Fashion Salon there are shows in which only 30 or 40 guests take part. Is that what you thought? That’s why invitations to the shows are so popular!

Do international designers appear in Berlin?

You won’t meet many international designers at Berlin Fashion Week, Marc Cain is usually on site, but that’s the big international highlight! In Berlin he meets the top German designers, fashion labels RIANI and Dorothee Schumacher.

In which location will Berlin Fashion Week take place?

The designers’ shows take place in various locations in the city, a few years ago at the Brandenburg Gate in a specially constructed large tent with its own lounge and many conveniences, then in the Jandorf department store and this year for the first time in Berlin’s E-Werk.

Modeling at a fashion show? If you want to work as a model at one of the fashion shows yourself, you have to take part in the castings. The casting dates, especially for the great designers, are of course kept strictly under lock and key. Here only the big model agencies should participate, so that on the day of the decision one really has only the best candidates locally. There is not much time for the preparation in Berlin, as an agency or team you usually have 7 to 10 days to find the best models, to familiarize yourself with the location, to prepare all clothes and if necessary also to make changes if something is spontaneous. Therefore, the castings are usually not conducted publicly. With smaller labels, however, you are sometimes lucky as a model without a model agency. Because some of your castings are held in public, why is that? Of course, the great designers don’t necessarily need additional advertising, they already have other concepts for that. Smaller designers, e.g. from Berlin, would be happy to receive a little extra attention for your fashion label. That’s why some model castings are made public.
Berlin, Paris, London, New York, what is most worthwhile?

The concepts and the presentation are of course the most extravagant in Paris and New York! If you’ve experienced one like this here, Berlin will soon seem relatively small to you. Especially in Paris big shows are traditionally done. Everyone knows the famous productions for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld, trend-setting with robots – in the supermarket or in the forest, every kind of production is feasible. In Berlin the scales are a bit smaller, here you have two or three locations, which are usually not specially prepared, the focus is on fashion. Of course, this has its very own charm. Fashion Week is not only important to see new clothes, but also to network and meet again.
Chanel Fall / Winter 2018 in Paris

Here you see the difference to Berlin, Paris, absolute highlight!

What is there to experience besides the fashion shows?

In the streets of Berlin, especially in the city centre, you will find a lot of events that take place parallel to Fashion Week. For example, there are great parties at the House of Weekend, one of the rooftop bars in Berlin. Not only cash, but also club! A truly unique experience for Berlin. If you are an agent at a model agency or a model at Fashion Week in the summer, it is also worth taking a look into the great crested diver, just a few metres from Warsaw Street. In the Great Crested Grebe you not only have a club but also a huge pool. Especially in the hot summer days, the cooling in the evening is perfect here. But there are also smaller events and parties, from DJs to barbecues. Of course you have not only the time to visit events in the evening, but also many events in the night. Magazine Parties in clubs, private parties in larger houses but also designer events, often with celebrity singers who present new songs for an invited audience. From a cosy barbecue to a magazine party you can experience so much in Berlin. Many dates can be found on the official site of the would Fashion Week but also always in our fashion blog!

Milan Fashion Week – From crazy Gucci Show to Gigi Hadid with Puppy

The designers of the official new collections, are often not only by art or z.b. Inspire music, but have their own muses. These are nowadays mainly models or stars and starlets. Not only models, but also life styles are a topic in fashion. Designers like Gucci want to use their fashion to express, transform, improve and sometimes highlight their positive sides or critique negative ones.

Every year, designers have to come up with new trends. To attract attention, they try to show the craziest things and most extraordinary shows. To make an impression, or to stay in mind, Creative Director of Gucci has come up with something new this year. Alessandro Michéle and his team showed an extraordinary fashion show in a room reminiscent of a hospital operating room. The Models that presented the collection were made up in various ways. Some of the models got a drawn monobrow and others walked down the catwalk with their own heads under their arms. From Models with horns to little dragons on their arms, Gucci has shown a mix of luxury fashion and a little freak show in his collection. The team tried to make the models look out of this world and somehow like fairytale creatures, but with a precision and a lot of effort to get a look that it looks almost real. Their message to show different and diverse looks, that are somehow freakish, defenitly catched our attention. Check the video from the show yourself.

The Tod’s brand is mostly known for making leather shoes, handbags and other accessories. This year they have shown their new collection at the Milan Fashion Week. The new fashion showed women’s clothing, in great muted and pastel colors such as beige, brown and cream. However, all the attention was on another factor. Gigi Hadid opened the show and like a few other models she was walking with a cute puppy in her arms.

Paris Fall / Winter: Chanel with chic Fashion in the Woods

Karl Lagerfeld is more than just the designer of Chanel. He defined and gave the Fashion the right style as amazing as no one else could have done after Coco Chanel. This Fall / Winter Collection of Chanel, he showed the clothes in a setting that looked like a wood. With leaves everywhere, trees and dark drapes coming from the ceiling, the Models walked down and showed pieces that defined the vision of the designs. Strong women with nice business dresses and beautiful pearls or gemstones on handbags.The Scenography was perfectly fitted to the designs and gave a nice insight look of the chic, classical and sophisticated look that Karl Lagerfeld sees with the brand.

Bottega Veneta Men and Womenswear – Großartige Mäntel und Stoffe

Model Julia Stegner opened the show of the new autumn / winter collection 2018 and 2019 Bottega Veneta. Among model asterisks like Caroline Trentini and Simon Nessman had a small catwalk comeback. The collection had the perfect look to express a great version of subtle luxury. If you look at the clothes, you can see the defined tailoring and good craftsmanship. The collection looks classy and looks expensive, but not with the typical features of the brand looks. These are beautiful dresses that you can wear season after season and look stunning but hidden and not intrusive.

Jeremy Scott or Moschino? Colorful Fashion: Faux Fur and Alien Looks

Moschino and Jeremy Scott. Jeremy Scott and Moschino. For those who do not know the brand and the designer, it is not clear which connection lies between the two. The designer Jeremy Scott with his eponymous brand is also the creative director of the well-known high fahsion brand Moschino. His fashion is known for bright colors and wild combinations. Moschino and Jeremy Scott go well together, the designer has sportswear and streetstyle covered in his own brand, and Moschino includes chic and sleek women’s clothing. The brand Moschino is like Jeremy Scott no gaudy color too bad, with the inspiration in Pop Art and the motto “Fashion has to be fun”, the designer shows the latest autumn / winter fashion. Unknowing viewers may have wondered why the collections are similar or even almost seem somehow identical. However, he showed a more elegant version of clothes in the Moschino catwalk show. The cuts, presentation and idea behind the collections did not look alike except for the colors: bright and expressive pink, blue or neon colors could be seen. Some models on the Moschino catwalk had pink and blue colored skin.Like strange aliens but with the famous “Jacky Kennedy 50ties Look” hairstyles. In the videos you can admire the great clothes and bags and be inspired by the looks that are “out of this world”.

The other two times is for the men’s fashion in January/February and July. The first New York Fashion Week was in 1943 and was called Press Week. The name New York Fashion Week only became official in 1994. It is placed in the city and it has two official locations- in Midtown Manhattan the Moynihan Station and the Clarkson Square in SoHo. Sometimes designers choose their own locations in random parts of the city New York.

A lot of designers present their fashion to the stars, producers, and celebrities of the fashion business. There are more than over 60 head shows of the important designers like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Tory Burch, Anna Sui or Alexander Wang. To add to that there are a few of smaller events in locations like galleries happening for the circa 10.000 visitors of the Fashion Week. Even a few, not American designers present their new collections at the NYFW like Hugo Boss, Desigual, Lacoste and Marcel Ostertag to name some. Now you ask yourself who is allowed to watch these Shows an how do they get invitations or tickets? The official Brands send invites to Stars, Fashion Icons or people like Bloggers. For important Press contacts and fashion magazines you either get an invite or need to get an accreditation. Some shows are broadcasted online and you can watch them live while they are happening, so everyone gets to see a part of the official New York Fashion Week.

Top Fashion Shows New York: Autumn / Winter 2017

Soon it’s time again! The big meeting of designers, new collections and a lot of press. From the 9th of September the fashion world in New York is upside down again. The first Fashion Week took place in New York in 1943 and was initiated by fashion journalist Eleanor Lambert. Thus, Fashion Week has been a long tradition for decades. Many fashion designers come and go with this tradition. Which designers have really shone last season and what makes them special here.

Best Shows Fashion Week New York: Autumn / Winter 2017

From classics like Chanel to newcomers like Victoria Beckham. Each designer has his own style. Whether sporty-chic, classic or extravagant. At Fashion Week New York Fall / Winter 2017 everything was back. Here are our favorites:

Alexander Wang – Chief Designer at Balenciaga

For American fashion designer Alexander Wang, one fashion show is more dramatic than the other. In his fall / winter collection 2017 he achieves a captivating mood through techno and a dark collection. Alexander Wang’s garments are known for their mix of grunge chic, minimalism and street style. Although the fashion designer started his career only since 2005, he can not be thought away from Fashion Weeks alongside Chanel and Gucci. In addition, Alexander Wang has also been chief designer at Balenciaga since 2008, which is why we assume that we can look forward to his pieces for a while!

Michael Kors – career since childhood

Since 1998, many women dream of owning a Michael Kors handbag. If it is not a bag, then it will be shoes, jewelry or watches. But beware, there are also men’s fashion! His collections, whether men or women, are characterized by a mixture of sportiness and elegance, the so-called “jet-set attitude” is the keyword here. Michael Kors himself has not only been seen on the scene since his fashion career, because even as a small child, the top designer was seen in several TV spots, such as for a cornflake brand. From show business to internationally recognized fashion designer!

Chanel with world-renowned chief designer Karl Lagerfeld

The eternal classic in fashion heaven. It all started in 1921 with the best-selling perfume “Chanel No. 5” to date. The little black girl was born 5 years later. With Karl Lagerfeld at the top of the team, new, timeless fashion is still being created from season to season. Many people even invest more in Chanel bags than in real estate, as their value increases every year. Particularly popular for this is the model “Flap Bag 2.55”.

Victoria Beckham with fashion for the modern woman

From music, to acting, to modeling and now also a designer. A true all-rounder! In her collections she tries to design fashion for every everyday situation – “Fashion has to be comfortable” is her motto. At the New York Fashion Week Fall / Winter 2017, she presented fashion for the modern woman. With a mix of classical music and techno she thrilled her audience with garments that also combine classic and modern elements.
