Berlin Fashion Week SS 2018

Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2018 is over, and if you were following along on my Instagram, you may have seen my adventures. But if not, I thought, rather than share with you each and every photo of what I got up to, I would select my favourites and bring it to you in diary slash vlog format. Does it sound good?

BERLIN FASHION WEEK S/S 2018

Berlin Fashion Week, unlike any other, always has its own unique spirit. It’s not only about the designs, but about the vibes, that surround the city. Berlin turns into the bold, marvellous, shameless fashion scene only for one week. Even the very air is filled with its weird magic. So let’s take a look at the most extraordinary trends of the spring/summer season 2018, shall we? This time I was invited to attend several amazing shows, had a chance to interview the designers and spend a wonderful time at some of the exciting blogger events.

My Berlin Fashion Week’s started a bit earlier, on Monday, with the first event from Coca-Cola – Coke Summer Night in the Berliner Club Haubentaucher. It’s a nice place, located almost in the city centre, with a wonderful pool area and the bar with a dance floor. There we had a chance to enjoy the unforgettable atmosphere of the party and to discuss our plans for the upcoming week.

The next stop – FashionBloggerCafe! It’s a traditional blogger event, organised by StyleRanking, that takes place twice a year as a part of Berlin Fashion Week. This time it’s supposed to be a beach-like event with a festival feeling at Beach Mitte Berlin, but the weather during the Berlin Fashion Week was pretty awful. Despite that fact, a good company and a great location did the job. So it was so much fun to spend a couple of hours there, enjoying some snacks and making new friends.

HashMag Blogger Lounge with all kind of exciting DIY activities, beauty treatments, snacks and drinks definitely became once again a hotspot for the bloggers during the fashion week chaos. Here you could have some rest, drink a glass of sparkling wine and chat with the fellow bloggers between the events.

There were lots and lots of other events, like Vero Moda and ONLY Fashion Gardens with their stylish summer lounge atmosphere or a home-like STILGEFLÜSTER Fashion Week Showroom and much more. All of them you can see on my Vlog-video below. And now let’s move on to the fashion shows, shall we?

UPCOMING TRENDS SPRING/SUMMER SEASON 2018

This year Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, as well as the main fashion events, took place at the old department store Kaufhaus Jandorf. As you probably know, for about a year now I live in Berlin, which means I could easily come and go to shows with just a taxi, rather than a flight and a hotel stop. It doesn’t seem like a big deal though, but when you have a chance to get changed into anything in your wardrobe rather than your suitcase and you have your whole makeup collection at your disposal, what could be better than that, right? And the Kaufhaus Jandorf is like 20 min far from the place where I live. Isn’t it just fab?

Another great thing – I was sitting in the front row during each and every show, so I could take some great pictures and videos of the complete looks, which I did, of course. So now let’s talk about the main trends, that are going to pop up next season.

STEINROHNER

Airy flapping, translucent materials and a touch of lace. Sounds adorable, right? For me, the new STEINROHNER collection was the most wearable, beautiful and inspiring one. Each and every fabric was chosen perfectly. There was everything in this collection for the feminine, subtle dress worshipper like myself. The designers, Caroline Rohner and Inna Stein, did a great job and inspired me a lot with all their incredible designs! So the trend transparency awaits us in 2018, which I’m super excited about.

ODEUR STUDIOS

Very bold, yet simple and sustainable collection from ODEUR STUDIOS features visually striking but rather wearable pieces, using mainly off-white and very light colours. Modern cuts and garments define selected textiles and take the beholder and the wearer away with into a world of clear lines and simplicity.

NATHINI VAN DER MEER

The NATHINI VAN DER MEER’s new collection has a no-season character. In contrast to the common fast-forward approach the designer deliberately searches for slow-fashion elements, focusing on experimental material-sourcing, longevity and quality rather than rapid trend-cycles while leaving gender-norms behind. That’s why her new collection is rather timeless and very artistic with the mix of all bright colours possible.

So as you may have noticed, the fashion made the circle and now we’re moving back to the minimalistic designs and cut-outs on one hand, and to the feminine delicate even aethereal silhouettes – on the other.

  • Becca Talbot

    I’m not surprised that Berlin’s fashion week is so eclectic and different from FW in other cities – having just got back from Berlin myself, you can see how different a city it is to say Paris or London x

  • Jennifer Quattrucci

    It sounds like such an incredibly fabulous event ! Not only was the fashion at the Berlin SS show outstanding but I love how they were so hospitable to bloggers. I would definitely love to visit Berlin during Fashion Week!

  • So clever to do a VLOG – I gotta try that for the next NYFW. And looks like you had great seats – there is nothing better than first row! I see some fun fashion coming our way! Blogger events really are the best – my kids are always asking to see the swag I scored LOL. One day I’d love to hit the other fashion weeks – Berlin looks like so much fun!

    Great review dear. Thank you for sharing your experience. I wish I could go there too. But you know, one can’t be in two different places at the same time. I went to the Paris Haute Couture week which was going on during the same time.

    Right before I read your post I was thinking about NYFW and thinking how much simpler it would be to organize if I lived there. So, I think that’s amazing that you live in Berlin and didn’t have to travel. Theres something really calming and easy going about that! I loved seeing everything through your eyes! The designs are unique and fashion forward! I also, really adore that image of you where the light is shinning so perfectly! Really stunning love! All of the blogger events sounds like such fun too! I bet you had a truly wonderful time!

    I’ve never been to Berlin or even knew there was a fashion week! That’s so awesome that you got to interview the designers and that you had a lounge where you can relax at in between shows! It’s too bad that the weather was awful and but at least you got to enjoy yourself a little in the beach-like event. I wish there was a fashion blogger cafe like all year round haha.Thanks for sharing what’s to come for spring. Love that you put this all together in a vlog format too. Great way to watch what you experienced!
