Fashion Week always seems like a double-edged sword. The fine balance between enjoying yourself and having a complete breakdown is sometimes hard to maintain, but once again I made it out alive. A frenzy of activity includes: runway shows under the Mercedes Benz tent, private collection viewings, showcases, press dinners, exhibitions, showrooms and endless parties. This may seem like a dream come true to some (including me) but you have to know what your in for. Each day turns out to be a twenty-hour work day, in which you have to attend several events at different locations around the city, be on time for all of them, stay organized and socialize within the fashion realm. Beautifully catered events, flowing champagne, the Mercedes Benz car service and Essie’s complementary nail bar are all things that make it more bearable. Plus meeting interesting new people or old friends in the industry makes it kind of feel like a high school reunion.
The Autumn/Winter collections were beautiful as always. I always enjoy seeing A/W more than S/S because the fabrics and textures are more interesting, colours are richer and designs are usually more developed. Unfortunately, you have to have in invitation to go to most of the shows, but you can view all of the collections via Vogue Germany here.
