BERLIN FASHION WEEK ROUNDUP - STUDIO183 MITTE FLAGSHIP STORE

Berlin Fashion Week was incredibly exciting and packed with countless shows and happenings. While we could luckily find time to attend some of the shows, we also made sure to welcome the fashion crowd to our own events, in both of our fabulous locations.

Dive into the happenings of last week in our Mitte Flagship Store!

MARTIN MARGIELA ARCHIVE POP-UP

We started the week in our Flagship Store in Mitte with a very special opening night for our Maison Martin Margiela Archive Vernissage and Pop-Up. Guests were invited to admire the genius of the designer whilst shopping the collection. In addition, the exhibition gave them the opportunity to pick apart his ideas through the unique pieces and iconic accessories from his early collections, as well as interpret them with the help of collectible lookbooks and original VHS recordings of fashion shows from the ‘90s.

The coolest of the cool joined to pay homage to the designer, who stepped aside from his eponymous label in the ‘00s - thank you to everyone who joined us for this journey!

AVEDA STYLING LOUNGE

Our lovely group of influencers and the amazing Aveda Team made the second day of the week very special.

The bloggers selected their favourite pieces from our designers in-store, while the professional hairstylists and make-up artists of Aveda enhanced their good looks so that they could pose for photographer Mark Hunt.

They walked out of our store with a goodie bag full of treats from Aveda, Uslu Airlines, Frau Tonis Parfum, Wildcorn, DÖRRWERK, and Citykeks.

LIVE ART-FASHION PERFORMANCE WITH CHRISTINA KNOBBE

On the final day of Berlin Fashion Week we experienced the spellbinding performance of our resident Berlin artist, Christina Knobbe, who painted her signature style live onto a garment worn by our wonderful model, Maurice. Christina’s abstract swirling shapes kept us hypnotised throughout the performance!

Monolit provided the musical backdrop to the night and complementary beverages were served to all of our lovely guests by Michelberger Fountain of Youth, Kreutzbergs Regenerativum, Hoos London Gin, Dr. Koehler, and Windspiel manufaktur.

By the end of the week we were extremely tired but incredibly happy, it was very rewarding to see all the lovely fashion people coming together for a celebration of creativity. We are already looking forward to the next one!

BERLIN FASHION WEEK RECAP

Last week we had a ton of fun at our special events during Berlin Fashion Week. We also attended spectacular fashion shows, visited the biggest trade shows in town, discovered cool, new designers, and of course partied with fabulous fashionistas!

Let’s revisit what happened during this event-packed, fashion-heavy week!

We started the week in our Flagship Store in Mitte with a very special opening night for our Maison Martin Margiela Archive Vernissage and Pop-Up. We presented unique pieces, iconic accessories from the designer’s early collections, alongside lookbooks, exhibition catalogues, and original fashion show recordings from the ‘90s screened on VHS.

IVANMAN FASHION SHOW AND DISPLAY

On Tuesday many designers showed their latest collections on the runway, but we specifically liked IVANMAN, who also displayed his strongest pieces on the Designer Shop floor of MBFWB. Playing with workwear references and clubbing appropriate pieces in royal blue and black, with patches of neon yellow, orange and green thrown into the mix.

On the same day in our Bikini Berlin store, we fused art with fashion at the opening night celebrating the creative collaboration between the designer I Dream of Shapes and the French artist, Marie May.

The artist displayed his sublime photography in our window space and projected a few conceptual works for the guests to enjoy.

The night was made more enjoyable by the tracks of HC Kurtz, and the artist himself also got behind the DJ decks.

TRADE SHOWS: PREMIUM, PANORAMA, BRIGHT

In between the shows and preparations, we popped into some of the extensive trade shows to meet fresh talent amongst the 1000+ designers who presented their collections. We definitely found a huge number of interesting designs and dedicated fashion creatives - it was worth the visit!

We also bumped into our unique Studio183 jacket at Bright, styled brilliantly by one of our customers.
