Last weekend Benedikta and I were lucky to attend the 20 year anniversary of ELLE magazine in Germany amidst the Fashion Week in Berlin. We took the opportunity to discover the city and its great fashion spirit!
Dress code for the ELLE party was black tie – easy for us BurdaStyle girls! Benedikta wore the <a href:“http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/165”>Cate dress, I showed off our <a href:“http://www.burdastyle.com/creations/show/4724”>Heidi Prom Variation.
On the first picture (taken by Roger Riedel) you see our new fun friends in Berlin: Julia Reinecke editor from the German urban culture blog <a href:“http://www.hobnox.com/willkommen.914.de.html”>hobnox, Mary Sherpe, who documents Berlin street style at <a href:“http://stilinberlin.blogspot.com/”>STIL IN BERLIN and blogs about all happenings and thoughts around fashion at <a href:“http://pudri.blogspot.com/2008/07/elle-fashion-star.html”>pudri (both are in ENGLISH!), as well as Christina Haeussler from MySpace Germany, me, and Benedikta. The second picture shows the stage, you can see Claudia Schiffer and Karl Lagerfeld. We tried to talk to him, Benedikta even held on to his glove, but all to no avail, he couldn’t get inspired by open source sewing that quickly.
Also part of the week was the launch party of GLAM in Germany (our ad network that is helping us to make some money!) where our friends from the German fashion blog <a href:“http://www.lesmads.com/”>LesMads Jessica Schwarz and Julia Knolle hung out as well. Julia is the new editor-in-chief of the <a href:“http://de.glam.com/”>GLAM portal, congrats!
Benedict who films for Fashion Lab back stage at fashion shows was also present with his phone, check out what I had to say in this <a href:“http://www.fashionlab.de/2008/07/glamour-uberall-berlin-fashion-week-partys/”>video (videos all in English). I also met Mahret Kupka who is behind <a href:“http://fartguide.blogspot.com/”>f&art
In the offline world, I became fan of some fun independent designer stores, walking aroud Mitte (check out <a href:“http://www.andreasmurkudis.net/”>the stores of Andreas Murkudis, beautiful but pricey.) My new favorite store with affordable and great clothes is in Wedding and named <a href:“http://www.styleserver.de/”>STYLESERVER. You can order online, and MUST if you visit Berlin! They carry among many <a href:“http://www.cneeon.de/”>C.Neeon and <a href:“http://www.lalaberlin.com/”>Lala Berlin, nice!
