And welcome back to the week of fashion. The time has come to talk about the second day of Fashion Week here in Berlin. And to be honest, it was probably one of the best days. Okay, actually the whole week was freaking amazing. It was one big awesome bundle of moments.
So anyway, on the second day I woke up and straight went to the first fair, called Ethical Fashion Show and Greenshowroom. You can all probably guess that it was dedicated to sustainable and ethical, fair produced fashion, that not just looks good but also is good for our beloved mother earth. Which is, at least I think so, pretty amazing. I did two interviews there with two awesome labels. The first one was called Bleed Clothing, a in Germany based label that produces vegan, fair, organic fashion, mostly outdoor and streetstyle focused. Honestly, I’ve never really paid attention to eco fashion, because most of the time you just see that it’s eco fashion. It just looks kinda boring, never quite the look I was heading for. But Bleed Clothing is something different, seriously. I did the interview with the founder and he showed me the upcoming collection and it featured a dark red blouse made of something called Tencel, which is a cellulose fibre made from eucalyptus, which they get from a company in Austria, which is so cool, thinking that I’m from Austria.
Anyway, since he showed me the blouse I can’t stop thinking about it and I’m more than glad that this kind of change is happening right now. A trend going from eco fashion that look like eco fashion to eco fashion that looks like something you bought from Topshop or Asos. And I think that’s plainly awesome.
The second interview I did this day was with another German label called HempAge, which – yes, you guessed it – produces fashion made of Hemp. So, they don’t smoke it but turn the plant into beautiful pieces of clothing. I talked to both the designer and the founder and it was really exciting for me how much into and how much they love doing what they do. And that made me really happy. To see how much the topic meant to them.
And after those two very cool interviews I chilled for a little bit and then went to another fair called Show and Order, which was specialized in feminine fashion. And to be honest, just looking at the entrance you could sense what it was all about. And the inside of the building was even better. It was what I would call a heaven made of pastel. Pastel pink signs and white-grey walls. Huuuuge chandeliers everywhere. Flowers right at the entrance. And one jewelry stand after another. To say it in short, it was magnificent. And while having late lunch and walking around and checking out the labels time just flew by. And suddenly evening had already come and it was time for me to go home.
Looking back I’m so freaking happy that I got the chance to meet those two labels personally and just spent a nice day strolling through the aisles and checking out the newest trends. It still makes me so happy to think about it and sensing how my life could be when I get older and fulfill my dream of becoming a fashion journalist. After this week I know that this is the right thing for me. I could and still can feel it.
So yeah, that was my second day at the Fashion Week in Berlin. As always, I put the best pictures of the day down below and also the links to the websites of the two labels I interviewed. If any of you have any questions or something like that, don’t hesitate to contact me. And until then, I hope you enjoyed this post and, as always, thanks for reading. x
