Coachella, Lollapalooza, Burning Man, Glastonbury, Sziget – this special season of the year has begun and we are so looking forward to our favorite music festivals. During the last years festivals like Coachella have become the catwalk of the summer showing gorgeous and crazy fashion street styles. Our favorite bloggers spread the word via social media and finally those looks influence each summer’s fashion. That’s why we A) don’t want to miss new trends and styles B) have to prepare our wardrobe and C) make sure that our new garments can be worn throughout summer. But, there is still plenty of time to get the sewing machines started!
