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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
