This week in Berlin, more than 50 designers are presenting their collections for spring/summer 2013. One highlight already was the show by Lena Hoschek of Austria, who has developed from a fashion wunderkind into an established designer. High-waisted cuts, lace and ruffles characterized her collection, which was staged as a Mexican festival of the dead.
Could the fake mustache be a new trend? Let's hope not. Fitting with her theme, designer Lena Hoschek, pictured, passed out toy revolvers and tequila to the crowd.
The label Escada Sport opened Fashion Week with its collection of airy linen pants, flowing summer dresses, and jumpsuits. The hot colors this season are ruby red and a glowing blend of green and turquoise.
These colors are combined in eye-catching patterns, like this rose print from Escada Sport, which is bound to attract attention at the beach. Underneath, the model is wearing a striped bikini.
Along with Milan, Paris and New York, the Berlin Fashion Week is one of the most significant fashion shows in the world and draws a number of prominent guests. Canadian musician Bryan Adams sat in the first row at the opening show.
The Bread & Butter show presents the latest trends in street and urban wear. This year, it's taking place at the defunct Tempelhof Airport.
Bread & Butter adds canary yellow to the trend colors ruby red and bright turquoise. With nearly 700 exhibitors, Bread & Butter is one of the largest events at Fashion Week.
It was Madonna who famously linked religion and fashion in the 1980s. These days, religious symbols are an everyday part of the pop and fashion industries. These models at the Bread & Butter opening party appear more conservative than provocative.
Berlin-based label Barre Noire goes floral in its latest collection, with both real and printed buds. Through July 8, fashion buffs can look forward to shows from big names, like Michael Michalsky and Guido Maria Kretschmer, as well as newcomers, like Patrick Mohr.
