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.
Linn, one of our wonderful New Faces is fresh from Milan back in Germany. We took this chance and put our Natascha together for an exclusive interview with her. How the everyday life of a model runs and her experiences with brands like Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino. Find out on Sunday on our Youtube Channel or here in our blog.
Berlin, the beautiful capital of Germany. In such a huge metropolis there is something to discover around every corner, from a small curious bar to a crazy flea market with a karaoke event. To coincide with Fashion Week, we have a few locations for you that you must visit to make your time in Berlin even more exciting.
flea market at Mauerpark
Everyone knows a flea market – here a few old cassettes from childhood and there a few dusty books. But if you want to have a special flea market experience, you have to check out the popular flea market at Mauerpark. Every weekend people flock to the location to get cool rarities, fashion, bags, design, vnyl, jewellery and much more. Apart from an incredible variety of things you can buy there, it also offers fun karaoke events every Sunday. There you can show what you can do in front of over 1000 spectators.

Missing the Sundays at #Mauerpark! 🌝 Haven’t been in a while and won’t go much this winter beside the month of December I guess, as cumulating the week job and the full Sunday at Mauer is quite a lot. Plus I got a lot of work on the website side! Already 50+ products listed ✨, but that’s not even a quarter of what I have. It’s kind of funny to put a number in front of my stock of #magic #jewellery! Earrings are tiny, who would have guessed that I have already so many?! Special ❤️ to my Sunday Mauerpark #bestmate @mayakennedytrepat from @mayastreasures_! Can’t wait to see your new treasures 😘 #jewelry #flohmarkt #flohmarktammauerpark #sundaymood #summerthoughts #marketlife #marketgirl #berlin #earrings #jewelrygram #instajewelry #onlineshop #comingsoon

The Television Tower at Alexanderplatz
Yes, it’s maybe one of the 0815 things you can do when you’re in Berlin. However, we can only recommend it to you – the television tower at Alexanderplatz. Berlin from above is nowhere better to experience, simply to Alexanderplatz, drive up and 360 degrees experience the big city. Also we can be inspired every time again to experience this view. Depending on the time of day, you may have to wait a while, as the rush can be quite high, but we assure you that it is worth waiting.

visit the most beautiful square in Berlin – the Gendarmenmarkt
Berlin’s most beautiful square in the historic centre of the metropolis is the Gendarmenmarkt. Anyone who is a fan of architecture and a breathtaking atmosphere should definitely pay a visit to the Gendarmenmarkt. The German cathedral alone is worth a visit. When you enter the cathedral you can see an exhibition of the German Bundestag. On the development of parliamentary democracy in Germany. The French Cathedral houses the Huguenot Museum. The French Friedrichstadtkirche is still in the lower part of the building. A must see for every culture fan.

Time for Mustafa’s vegetable kebap at Mehringdamm
No snack is as famous as Mustafa’s vegetable kebap. For 2.90€ and a lot of patience you get the “best doner kebab in the world” at Mehringdamm. Unbelievably many people even come to Berlin especially for this or come directly from the airport. However, the average waiting time is about 45 to 60 minutes. So it’s best to take a snack with you while you wait in line, because it’s pretty crowded every day. All we can do is tell you it’s worth it! Mustafa’s vegetable kebap is something you should not miss.
Shopping Time in the KaDeWe
If you are already in Berlin, you must also visit KaDeWe – Berlin’s most famous department store. Who doesn’t love shopping? We wouldn’t know where you’d have more fun shopping than at the KaDeWe. From Armani to Adidas you will find a huge variety of brands where you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for. But keep in mind that it is not the cheapest department store, as it is also one of the most expensive department stores in Germany. Although there are no Chanel, Prada, Gucci and co., there are other upmarket brands. But even if you don’t want to buy anything, the KaDeWe is worth a visit, even if you just want to admire the incredible architecture.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amesh presents his Autumn/Winter looks at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019
Arina lives in southern Germany, between mountains, fresh air and a lot of nature! The perfect conditions to have the perfect conditions as a model with a healthy lifestyle and a little sport. Although it does not quite reach the 176cm, Arina has great potential not only for the German market, but also for the international model market.
Arina at London Fashion Week – 5 shows
Already in her first weeks Arina was at the London Fashion Week! With a total of 5 jobs she had a great start in her career there. Modeling in London is a real challenge! Because in London there is a lot of competition for castings. In Berlin, where you may be with 10 or 15 other models, 80 to 100 models come to a designer casting in London, especially for Fashion Week. The castings are not even public! Only the good model agencies get the casting dates and addresses for the fashion shows in London. Our Arina made it with our partner agency Body London directly on 5 shows. We are very proud of our little one! Arina is an absolute new discovery and we hope that you will soon see her on Instagram channels of your favourite fashion brands or in the online shop with new fashion collections. If you want to see more of Arina, check out Arina’s model portfolio!
If you don’t want to miss a video of Arina but also of our other models, then follow our model agency on YouTube!
Made for fashion: Arina
Twice a year the fashion industry is drawn to the capital for Berlin Fashion Week. While visitors and the media are mainly interested in shows, buyers and managers from various stores and fashion houses meet at Berlin’s fashion fairs. They all take place parallel to the different fashion shows. In 2016, public events focused primarily on two locations: The “Runway”, beautifully located at the Brandenburg Gate and the “Stage”, Berlin Mitte and easily accessible by shuttle bus from the “Runway”. From Monday to Saturday the motto was: Fashion! Over ten shows, various side events and aftershow parties every day. There was something for everyone. Highlights this year included Marc Cain, Guido Maria Kretschmar, Anne Gorke, and many more. The absolute highlight, however, was the “Candy Fashion”, Key Looks by FashionID (Peek & Cloppenburg) with numerous looks from Esprit to comma; A hall full of cotton candy, sweets and style – but later more about the
Fashion Week Model Management – Preparations, Emails and Networking
For us as managers, Fashion Week naturally starts weeks before – in December. Work starts about six weeks before Fashion Week. In addition to the notebook, the smartphone is a constant companion. The first show packages will be released by the designers. A show package contains among other things the models’ sedcards, but also Polaroids and walking videos. Major modeling agencies are already making special efforts to get the coveted invitations – some even create special sedcards for this event. Why? Fashion Week represents the who is who of the fashion world. Those who can afford it are present here. Therefore it is important to start work early enough. The better the planning in advance, the smoother the castings, fittings and shows run!
While an agency is already rushing into travel plans, overnight stays and the organisation of appointments, the invitations to the castings are gradually coming in. As mentioned above, about fifty individual shows will take place during Fashion Week. This means that there are almost as many model casings in Berlin in advance. A real job.
Models, catwalk training, print sedcards – preparation is half the battle
For us there were almost thirty interesting casting dates this season. We had 10 of our New Faces & catwalk models on site. Just arrived, the rented AirBnB apartment is already being converted into an office for the team. Notebooks, smartphones, casting lists – so that we can work and coordinate perfectly in Berlin, directly from Potsdamer Platz. Advantage: Digital company! We can work anytime and anywhere, so we like to accompany our models on shows and shootings.
We have four days! From notebook to reflex camera, we have everything in our luggage. Monday starts Fashion Week and a few days before, the castings. Most of the Berlin Fashion Week castings take place in the hotels, Berlin Mitte. Anyone who has ever been to a casting knows that many models are coming. Mostly there are even hundreds from all over Germany and partly Europe. Each casting takes place in separate floors and rooms. Immediately after the entrance the first beats form in front of the rooms – from now on it’s time to wait until you can stand in front of the jury. Suddenly the huge hotel lobby is full of people, small suitcases and waiting looks.
Day 1: Arrival and the first casting plans for the shows
Friday 15.01.2015: The Berlin Fashion Week AW 2016 always consists of two parts, the castings and the shows. For spectators often only the important days with the big shows count. For models, however, the days before are crucial. Here, before Fashion Week, model castings for shows and fashion shows take place throughout the city centre. Hundreds of models gather in the capital’s large hotels, but also in showrooms, Ateiliers and agencies. All major agencies are present here. Fashion Week does not only mean prestige, you can make excellent contacts and get to know a lot of new things. The Berlin flair also gives the Fashion Week its unique character. Many models book into the hotels around the city centre. This makes the castings easier to reach and also in the evening there is some time to have a drink with friends or new acquaintances.
Day 2: casting, casting, casting
Saturday 16.01.2015: For four days models and fashion agents speed through the city centre. Everyone is looking for the best jobs and the biggest shows. In the bag are only the most important things, the smartphone is always ready to hand and from morning to evening it goes from casting to casting. While there is a lot of walking during the day, the evening is decisive for the planning of the next day. Which casting should you attend first and which last? Where to find good food quickly and easily? Besides, you have small talk with other models, get more castings. Four days is all about seeing and being seen!
Who knows Castings of Germanys Next Topmodel will be surprised. There is no big stage, no spotlights and only rarely cameras. As a model you have hardly any time, not ten minutes, maximum thirty seconds. Who convinces spontaneously, is often still briefly measured or sent directly to a fast fitting. The jury consists of three or four people who have to evaluate hundreds of people according to purely external criteria within a few hours. As a result, castings often seem impersonal, but this is purely due to time.
The castings usually take place in large city centre hotels, with large rooms and plenty of space for hundreds of models waiting for their Gosee. Small groups are always forming in the waiting rooms, everyone is waiting for the casting call, then the show starts. With the model book and sedcard, the jury is made up mostly of designers, marketing people or other media and production people. Usually there are three or four people. The model walks up to the jury and introduces himself, often with very little time, many only seconds. Many models see here for the first time how big and how strong the competition is in their own and in other model agencies.
Those who have convinced often get a call from their model agent the same evening with the confirmation. Especially good models are also quickly booked so that they are still available for their own fashion show. So the best Mdoels have their success experiences already early – if they did not have first a Direct Booking.
The time in the casting requires a lot of commitment, organisational talent and willpower from the models. Even after the sixth performance on one day you still have to laugh and enjoy your job – even if there were six cancellations before. With this know-how, however, models can learn a lot for jobs and also strengthen their own self-confidence as well as their own perception. The short, but very intense situation with hundreds of other models, shows many a realistic picture and spurs them on to do even more.
The first castings for the shows start Thursday/Friday and then run until Monday evening. Occasionally, however, castings are also carried out before and even during the current Fashion Week. So if you are thinking of joining us as a model, you should plan ten days off.
- Castings you get almost only with a large, serious model agency or an experienced model agent
- Show castings go from Thursday to Monday
- Berlin Fashion Week from Tuesday to Saturday
- So as a model you should plan on 10 days
- At least Thursday to Tuesday
Fashion Week Castings and decision of fashion designers
Many designers or agencies usually make their decision on the same day. They will then contact you via all channels to secure the best models. Because every fashion show includes a fitting and calltime. During fitting, clothes are tried on the models, which is usually very quick and only takes thirty minutes. The call time is then, so to speak, the start of work on the show day. All models, brand-up artists and stylists gather at calltime. All models get their assigned clothes as well as their styling. The calltime is therefore often a few hours before the show so that all models are guaranteed to be ready and the show can start on time.
- Big competition: hundreds of great models meet each other
- Often there is little time left for individual castings
- Don’t forget your sedcard
The Fashion Week is much more than castings and shows. At Berlin Fashion Week, thousands of buyers from all over Germany come together in the various order fairs, less spectacularly and media-wise. Whether Panorama, Preium or Seek. Outside the shows there is also a lot to experience for people from the fashion industry.
Order and Fair – the heart of Fashion Week
For many outsiders, Fashion Week means above all shows! Fashion shows are held daily at various locations. In 2016 (Autumn/Winter) everything will focus on the collections of the coming Spring/Summer season. While snow still lies outside in the streets of Berlin, buyers jump from fair to fair to cover themselves with the latest trends.
One of the major order fairs is the international fashion fair “Premium”. At hundreds of stands, merchants crowd together large and well-known brands. Buyers can view and order the latest samples directly here. The fair is only open to trade visitors, so fortunately you have enough space to concentrate on different looks, cuts and colours. While strolling from hall to hall on the Premium, there are small delicacies, coffee and also small and large highlights of the exhibitors all along the edge. Not only fashion, but also accessories and jewellery. At the “Premium”, the manufacturers even fill their own hall. Further fashion fairs can be found all over Berlin. Among other things, there are still the “Seek” and “Panorama”, all only a few underground or suburban train stations apart.
Fittings for the big fashion shows at the runway
For model agents and model agencies, the final phase is now underway. It takes less than an hour to recharge your phone. While Desigenr’s assistants call to request models, models request the first fitting and call times and in parallel the first confirmations must be sent via e-mail. The phone doesn’t stop for three days and as a manager it’s hard to get away from the notebook. Therefore the show list fills up, confirmation for confirmation. Models receive asap their information and designers the booking confirmation. Even on Monday evening, plans are still being made for the coming morning – and off we go: It’s Fashion Week!
Shows and events at Fashion Week
From Tuesday to Saturday there are now possible shows and aftershow parties of the designers. Ten designers will kick off on Tuesday. Already on the first day it became clear that there would only be a free minute again at the end of Fashion Week. Our first show this year was “Ivanman” on the “Stage” in the me Collectors Room. Early in the morning, 11 o’clock. Already last season Ivanman made a top start. Oh, this year. Immediately afterwards we went on with “Nobi Talai” in Berlin’s Kronprinzenpalai with our Yulha. Followed by a very floral show by the designer “Lena Hoschek”, perfectly arranged in one line from the place card to the stage. After that jump to the greenshowroom in the Postbahnhof, where our Alex had his first show, parallel Anne and David ran for Odeur at the “Runway” Brandenburger Tor. And the day was only half over – show after show it went on for the next four days.
Fortunately, we were not only allowed to run on the first show, also on Friday two of our models, Helena and Lisa, on the final show of “Ioana Ciolacu”. With creative make-up and strong pictures afterwards.
The big finale: Candy Fashion – KEY LOOKS Show by FashionID
The biggest highlight of the current fashion week took place on Saturday in a “small” circle of people. Top models, stars, agency and media representatives met at the KEY LOOKS Show from “FashionID” by “Peek & Cloppenburg”. The motto was “Candy Fashion”. The entire lobby of Fashion Week at the Brandenburg Gate was transformed into candy and cotton candy land – everything looked like a Katy Perry video. Really great staged by the set designer. Between cotton candy and human-sized lollipops there were cool, refined drinks at various bars, a great DJ and many little surprises and snacks. Almost two hundred people gathered left and right around the catwalk, which in turn was decorated with cotton candy at the entrance up to the ceiling, pink light and lollipops made the picture of “Candy Fashion” perfect.
At the beginning, eight models from a classic cotton candy wagon stood across the catwalk with sweet sugar threads. That put a smile on almost everyone’s face! Shortly thereafter, Showtime, the keylooks of the coming season, was available in all Peek & Cloppenburg stores and online on FashionID. With fashion by Esprit, Marc Cain and Max&Co. Moderated by Annemarie Carpendale (Red and Taff on ProSieben). Each collection got its own music, its own staging for the audience. Our Johanna also attended and showed a total of three looks for the spring/summer season 2016, culminating in creative outsfits for the fashion magazines – each editorial team put together their favourite pieces from the new collections and combined them with accessories and other pieces. Thus, new creations and looks for 2016 were immediately lost.
For the 17th time the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week took place in Berlin. capital, fashion metropolis and always at the cutting edge of fashion trends and style. Well-known designers presented their spring/summer collections 2016 in numerous fashion shows, including Hugo Boss, Lena Hoschek, Riani, Guido Maria Kretschmer and many more. They all attracted fashion enthusiasts and international trade visitors to the capital for Fashion Week. The main attraction was the Mercedes Benz Fashion tent, directly behind the Brandenburg Gate. Young, innovative, but also established fashion designers also presented their collections and designs in several off-locations. Our Cocaine Models-Model Bookerin Regina Steinpress was live on site and captured the most beautiful backstage moments.
Highlights on Tuesday – The first shows
The Berlin Fashion Week starts this year on 07.07.2015 with the first opening shows. With the highlight “Panorama Berlin” and the side event “IT COUTURE – The Fashion & Technology Exhibition”. Both start punctually at 09.00 o’clock. The seats are of course occupied until the last one, music is released: Fashion! It’s not over until the afternoon. The first fashion show gets the fashion label “Sopopular Menswear” and opens the catwalk with the collection “The Last March Before Victory”. The combination of military elements and Asian style is a perfect match for the fashion label. This is followed by several trade fairs, shows, side events and fashion shows in which renowned designers such as Lena Hoschek and Marc Cain present their new collections.
Particularly interesting are the many so-called side events at Berlin Fashion Week, because most of the time anyone can visit them without an invitation. These are not as well-known and highly official as the shows in the Mercedes Benz Fashion tent, where only invited guests have access.
Catwalk – Impressions from the catwalk
Our models at Fashion-Week Berlin
Also three of our Cocaine models proved themselves in the castings. They are part of Berlin Fashion Week and run the catwalk for various fashion designers. Simon walks the catwalk for fashion label Brachmann, a classic in men’s fashion, which this time took place at the stage location in the “Me Collectors Room”. Another highlight of Fashion Week for our model Simon is that he is the only model to conquer the catwalk for the new women’s collection of the fashion label Riani. Our Nikola presents the fashion of Pearly Wong, an independent design label, made of monochrome garments with unique materials. And Niklas takes part in the colourful and varied IVANMAN fashion show, which is intended to provide an impetus for more colour. There are not many looks in the collection, but well thought-out and stylish! Just as one knows it from the designer Ivan Mandzukic.
Highlights on Wednesday – The great designers
Of course, the second day of Fashion Week in Berlin will be an exciting day. A lot of other shows by famous designers like Anja Gockel or William Fan follow. Also the aftershow parties in the evening pile up, many celebrities, models and bloggers gather to celebrate.
A special fashion show was that of designer and TV darling Guido Maria Kretschmer. With his new collection “Bon Voyage” he presented his latest autumn/winter fashion 2015. Couture and “Ready to Wear” looks are combined for simple elegance and femininity. Stefanie Giesinger and Betty Taube, two then Germanys next top model candidates, can also be found on the catwalk.
Another highlight is the show of the designer duo Holy Ghost. Great Crested Grebe, an exclusive “in-location” with pool in Berlin, was transformed into an extraordinary catwalk. The catwalk runs over the water and is laid with an oriental carpet, which keeps the atmosphere very Mediterranean. Hundreds of visitors gather to take part in this spectacle.
Our models continue to conquer the catwalks
One of our Cocaine models is getting another catwalk job. Simon is allowed to participate in the third show so far and presents the new Spring/Summer collection 2015 by designer Franziska Michael. With a very creative and crazy outfit he walks casually over the catwalk.
Between Catwalk and Germanys next topmodels
Highlights on Thursday – almost 30° & Fashion
Shows and masses at noon, parties in the evening. This is the motto of Fashion Week in Berlin. Also on Thursday there are some highlights not to miss.
Fashion designer Michael Michalsky can be seen again this time! After he was not at the Fashion Week in January, because of the Ebola outbreak in Africa, for which he donated a considerable amount, he is back in July. With his first couture collection “Atelier Michalsky” he wants to create new favourite pieces. As expected, he inspires with his latest collection of trade visitors, as well as fashion enthusiasts.
Another absolute highlight on this day is the Dutch model Doutzen Kroes. Last week in Paris – today in Berlin. The famous Victoria’s Secret model is not on the catwalk this time, but at the Mercedes Benz Press Vernisasge, where she poses in an enchanting evening dress.
Also on Thursday one of our Cocaine models will be present. Nikola takes part in the “Panorama Berlin” fashion fair. The fair starts on the first day and presents the most important trends of the coming season, which include women’s and men’s collections as well as accessories from leading lifestyle brands.
Highlights on Friday – spectacular finish
Also on the last day of Fashion Week, Friday, there are some highlights, as well as spectacular shows.
Especially exciting is the Michalsky Stylenite, with which Fashion Week ends, as every year. This year, however, with a “light version”. There the designer, his collection and the Fashion Week will be celebrated once again. Of course, all seats are taken at this highlight, because everyone wants to be there at this special end! On the catwalk you can see flowing dresses in pastel shades, as well as a lot of fabric with flowers. The floral wreaths on the heads of the men’s models are particularly striking. The more conspicuous – the better!
But also many other designers like Ewa Herzog, Dorothee Schumacher or the Turkish designer Emre Erdemoglu, who also present their collections on the last day, have a lot of fabric with flowers on display. So-called “flood pants” also seem to be back in fashion! Turtleneck sweaters and shoulderless tops are very often seen on the catwalks in the German fashion metropolis!
As you may have noticed, we are looking for new models for Fashion Week. We are always looking for young models for our national and international customers. On Wednesday the time had come, in the club of the House of Weekend we were able to welcome a lot of nice applicants for our board. Not only pretty women were welcome, but also sexy curvys and beautiful men.

Berlin Fashion Week Casting Summer 2018
Have a look at some of the impressions from our last casting in Berlin:
Fashion Show Agency – Before a fashion show can take place in Berlin, Hamburg or Munich, a lot has to be planned and organized. Every fashion show is unique – we as an agency make sure that nothing goes wrong during the expiration. The designers and organizers contacted months before the event, planning everything down to the last detail, then adding PR agencies and finally the big day is coming. Everything is there: customers, bloggers, editors, models and media representatives. In order for everything to be perfect, even in the marketing after the fashion show, some aspects of the agency must be taken into account. If you have not planned or even visited any fashion show yourself, you will find here all the important cornerstones for planning a fashion show with the help of a renowned agency – like CM! !

Fashion Show Agency: We are planning the perfect staging of fashion
First of all, let’s take a more general look at what the most important points of a fashion show are and answer the question of why an agency is extremely helpful in planning and what should be considered in the first concept?
Why should I hire an agency for my fashion show / that of a client?
A fashion show is an extensive media event, so when planning for a fashion show must be thought of a lot. Besides the models, the location and the designer fashion, other elements play an important role. From music to lighting to guest service, there are a few things that can make a fashion show a complete success. One thing is especially important here: A fashion show has to convey a unified picture in which customers, bloggers, media representatives … evoke corresponding emotions among all guests as the models step across the catwalk with the new fashion collection.
Each planning is composed of different factors, small and large. Organizing a fashion show is not that easy. Depending on the complexity of the project or the customer’s requirements, the organization stretches for days or even months in the run-up to a fashion show, when, for example, even complex stage sets are added. It’s about much more than just the show, it’s about: offer creation, organization, possibly moderation, music editing, show-optimized, model booking, arrival and departure plan, nights (if necessary, desired), check fitting, Rehersal , Choreography, contracts, customer arrangements, dress rehearsal, schedules, schedules, clothing log, handover at the end, customer meetings, interface model / customer, etc.
The new fashion collection on the catwalk
1. Needed List – All details of planning / PR / Show in bullet points
What does an agency have to consider in the concept for a fashion show? Together with the client, the agents of the fashion show agency create a so-called “needed” list (in short, a classic requirement or todo list). In this first briefing, all important points are noted that are necessary for a successful fashion show in the sense of the customer, for example, a designer, advertising agencies or the PR agency. When all the points are neatly recorded and details such as catering and rehearsal room have been considered, we work as agency of our Kick Off Meeting for the show. Thereupon, the consultation, tailored exactly to the customer, takes place in person or on the telephone. In this much more defined, the models, the selection of music, the staging of the show regarding styling and choreography, rehearsals, castings and much more discussed.
This individual consultation varies, as described above, in intensity depending on the customer’s budget. After the consultation, we sat as a fashion show agency to the creation of the show concept and its presentation.
2. Model Casting – The perfect models and measurements for the fashion collection
Only after the presentation, the selection and the occupation of the models begin. Either an open casting begins, but usually a casting with preselection of the models. (Casting invitations are only for models that correspond to the corresponding type.) Following is a fitting of the models instead. Here, the selected models try on the collection outfits and the individual stylings are adjusted exactly, usually by a fashion show agency stylist or a specially commissioned stylist. The agency also takes care of the music and adapts it. More about the perfect casting process here: Casting Agency.
3. Choreography – A detailed planning of the individual “pictures” (scenes) with music
As a rule, the fashion show agency also takes care of the fashion show music, in some cases the customer also takes care of it himself. The music cut will be presented, the beats will be taken care of by the DJ and adapted to the choreography of the fashion show. This is important because the overall staging of the fashion show must finally be consistent. Music is generally very elemantar for a successful fashion show, because music conveys emotions and a certain atmosphere that influences the entire show. On Youtube are already optimally put together playlists for catwalks and fashion show videos. More about the different running styles can be found in the article: Haute Couture & Pret-a-Porter.
The choreographer designs “pictures”. That is, he worries about how the models act on the fashion show. It makes a big difference whether it is for example Haute Couture & Pret-a-Porter or a fitness fashion show in the context of a sports fair. Depending on the environment, location, audience and customer, individual scenes are created that optimally present the fashion collection. The show must be staged excitingly, so that the audience, no matter whether row 1 or row 8 are enthusiastic and then talk about fashion.
Preparing a fashion show: planning, marketing and PR
4. Public Relation – We inspire the right people from the label
When planning a fashion show, the organizer (agency or Do It Yourself) should clarify some questions in advance. For a perfect fashion show, possible problems in advance should be weakened, so that the designer and his helpers can devote themselves explicitly to their own tasks on the big day.
First, an exact date for the fashion show should be planned. It should be noted that on the desired day, no other major event takes place in the area. Otherwise it could come to a competition and potential buyers of the fashion show do not appear for time reasons or priority setting for the fashion show. The holidays and vacation time should not be ignored! A calculation should be made as to which times most visitors are expected, similar to the TV ratings. The function of the press work must be secured, that is: when, where and to what extent should be reported on the fashion show. Further advertising measures, such as poster advertising or similar, must be considered and the invitations organized and printed. The question is raised as to which people receive an invitation or are placed on the guest list.
We recommend to organize such big events always with a lead time of at least 4 months. There is enough time to invite important people like VIPs, bloggers and media representatives.
The show – location & guests of the fashion show
The target group of the fashion show and thus the presented collections must be clearly defined. For booking the location, the maximum number of visitors should be determined. The location should be tailored to the fashion designer and the style of his fashion collections. The designer’s vision is conveyed not only by the actual collection presented, but also by the atmosphere of the location. An elegant red carpet design, for example, fits better in an exquisite noble location than in an urban underground club. The technical equipment must be checked, so that not only on the day of the fashion show defects are detected. The staff must be booked, for example, for drinks, the music system, lighting technology or the cloakroom. Finally, it must be thought out how the cards come to the guest. Say: Is there a ticket sales, invitations or reservation options? And how are the guests informed about the various purchase options? In addition, seats must be reserved for the press and photographers must be given opportunities to take organized photos.
Directions & Reception – Welcome to the fashion show
During the selection of the location it has to be clarified, which possibilities there are for the audience, to reach the location. Say: Is there enough parking? What is the connection with public transport? The reception is an important entry point for the entire event at fashion shows. Here the guests notice if the fashion show was well organized. Each guest must be welcomed exclusively, for example in the form of a sparkling wine in the foyer and a clue to the wardrobe. When international guests arrive, the welcome and moderation will have to be in different languages, at least in English. The duration of the moderation should be adapted in advance perfectly to the show and the vision of the designer.
5. Rehearsal – final dress rehearsal for all models of the fashion show
Duration & Models – casting, choreography and running sequence
Of course, the fashion show must be timed in advance, that is, the fashion show is structured and set the duration. The structure provides a benchmark to which all stakeholders should adhere. Of course, there may be deviations. The number of outfits to be presented and the models will be worked out and adapted to the duration of the fashion show. It creates a concept. Weeks before the fashion show usually takes place a big model casting. The models are selected under certain criteria. Shortly after the fashion show, the so-called fitting takes place. The models try on the different outfits from the collection to be presented. It is determined which model presents which outfit. When this is clarified, the models begin to train the desired choreography and running sequence. Each model can present different outfits from the collection on the catwalk. The time in which models can move in the backstage area is calculated, usually everything has to go very fast. The choreography on the catwalk is determined in advance and rehearsed. Make-up artists, stylists and dresser are organized.
Continuing Organization – The General Rehearsal for Management
After the fashion show is over, guests will wonder if and where they can purchase the designs shown. When organizing the fashion show, these issues should be clarified. Does a sale take place after the fashion show? How are the guests informed? Are there enough fitting possibilities? How should the process be?
6th fashion show – The big moment for fashion designers
The process of the show – from the opening to the end
In a fashion show, the selected models enter the catwalk in a certain order, after a certain choreography. The designer can develop freely, there are no requirements, only a general framework serves as a guide. The opening model is of great importance to the designer. The first impression of the fashion collections of the designer on the audience counts and shapes the whole, following show! Likewise, the graduation model acts as an important element of the fashion show. This usually presents the highlight of the designer collection. In the audience sit the press, buyers and celebrities, as well as fashion bloggers or fashion-enthusiastic spectators. Each model presents at least one outfit on the stage, mostly followed by several. For this, the models have to be fast, because the outfit has to be changed behind the stage under time pressure. The choreography must not be interrupted. On the catwalk, the models can not stand the backstage stress, they walk unimpressed and resting on the catwalk.
7. Press Relations – After the show is before the show!
Now it starts, PR! Ideally, detailed lists with contacts to press representatives and PR agencies should be known in advance. These contacts should be provided with photos, texts and, if possible, videos right on the day or the day after. Because the magic of a fashion show can quickly go out when the next big fashion week starts in Milan, New York or Paris. The easiest way is to place your own fashion show in online magazines. It gets a bit harder to get into big magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar & Co. Therefore, it is advisable to approach not only the planning of the fashion show months in advance, but also the PR planning for the fashion show!

Runway Show Highlights of the Autumn and Winter Collection 2017
Fashion is always something special. Fashion lives on Being special! New fashion collections are regularly released by designers worldwide, every season. Not only major international fashion designers and retail chains are working. Even small fashion labels have to constantly present new designs and styles to their customers to gain their attention. So designers and fashion have to reinvent themselves time after time to stay interesting for consumers.
Shows in Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London
At the Fashion Weeks the new masterpieces are regularly presented. In Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London. In spring, summer, autumn and winter, people are always looking for new looks and trends. Almost all designers have one thing in common, they tailor their collections for tall, slender people as mentioned in every post to similar topics. The clothes are more elegant, fabrics unfold their full effect, everything looks more exclusive and high quality! Delicate figures make clothes and their possible price more expensive. Even if not all fashion brands work in this scheme, it’s the majority of the industry.
Dimensions for fashion show
Fashion shows and fashion presentations are subject to an unwritten standard. For female models, a dress size of 34 (maximum 34/36) with a height of 177-180 (176-181) cm is considered ideal at the beginning of the career. Your hip should be under 91cm. Men’s models usually have a clothing size of 48 (max 50/52) with a height of 185-192 cm. A tip here for men’s models: At the beginning of the career you should pay attention as a male model on a younger look. If you look too masculine in your early years as a model, you’ll quickly get a chance on jobs in the fashion industry and on casting. That’s why you should always go to Castings with a shaved beard as a male model in the first years.
These are the measurements points for your first modeling agency application. Take care, that you are totally honest. More about: Take your own measurements for agencies, castings and jobs.
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. Victoria Beckham herself exchanged her Higheels for white sneakers, as they are much better suited for their stressful everyday lives with 4 children. A statement to all women!

Every big city has its own fashion week, in which various larger or smaller designers present their new fashion collections with models in staged shows. The first fashion week took place in New York City in the early 1940s. The former name of Fashion Week was “Press Week”. The audience at the fashion weeks of this world is different and ranges from buyers of big fashion chains to celebrities and fashion enthusiasts. The big fashion weeks take place, with the exception of twice a year. This allows designers to present their spring and summer collections, as well as their autumn and winter collections, to a wide audience and with great media effort. Among the world’s most influential fashion weeks are the so-called “Big Four”: New York, Paris, London and Milan.
Fashion Week – Start and course of fashion week
The fashion shows of well-known designers such as Marc Jacobs or Georgio Armani usually take 15 minutes, there are of course deviations. Every designer realizes his own visions with the fashion show. There is therefore no fixed sequence of the individual fashion shows. Most designers take a basic sequence for orientation. In every fashion show there is an opening model that is very important for the designer. The first impression of his fashion collections on the critical audience must be perfect. The models usually present several outfits and walk twice over the catwalk. There is a graduation model that is also of great importance to the designer. The highlight of the collection is intended to surprise and fascinate the audience at the end of the show. At the end of each fashion show the models run one after the other, together across the catwalk and show the audience their outfit once again.
Fashion Week New York – the “Who’s Who” of the fashion industry
Sitting in the front row of New York Fashion Week: A dream of many young girls! Whoever has made it here is an integral part of the fashion scene and belongs to the inner circle. Fashion Week in New York is one of the most exclusive and successful fashion weeks in the world. With this in mind, Fashion Week in the Big Apple opens Fashion Weeks every season as the first of the fashion capitals.

Fashion-Week Paris – the cream of women’s fashion
In addition to the New York Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week is also of great importance in the fashion scene. The Paris Fashion Week usually takes place last, after the fashion weeks of the other three fashion metropolises. The Fashion Week Paris programme includes more than 90 major fashion shows. Highlights include the fashion shows by Chanel, Dior and Alexander McQueen. The fashion collections of the designers exude a mysterious charm, a flair that makes Paris a very special fashion city. At the Fashion Week Pret-à-porter Fashion is presented for the most part. But even the popular haute couture is not missed out in Paris: at numerous evening events, fashion enthusiasts can watch the haute coutur shows. In Paris, haute couture, an upmarket art of tailoring, was born. Extravagant, high-quality, expensive and not suitable for everyday use. Fashion that is also interpreted as true art for outsiders. The haute couture elements of the fashion collections are the highlights of every designer. The development of haute couture was a triumph of fashion history and still shapes the fashion scene today. The idea for classic fashion shows as we know them today also originated in Paris. After an influential designer of the time, Mr. Charles Frederick Worth, opened several fashion houses in France, he began to have his collections presented by models. His vision: to present fashion in the best possible way. A marketing strategy that took off and became an achievement of the fashion industry.
