From the catwalk to your wardrobe Prêt-à-porter – ready to wear

It’s time again. You take a look in your wardrobe and you just can’t find anything to wear. Either it does not correspond to the current trends, your favourite sweater no longer fits or you simply feel like something new again. Most people then head for shops like Zara, H&M, New Yorker, Vero Moda or Bershka and re-equip themselves for little money. These clothes belong to the fashion category Prêt-à-porter. But what is prêt-à-porter anyway? How long has this term existed? Who thought of that? What are advantages and what are disadvantages?

+ AD + Do you know?

Prêt-à-porter – Current, cheap and versatile

Prêt-à-porter means “ready to wear” and means the clothes that can be bought in shops, that are available in all sizes and that also keep costs down. Prêt-á-porter is therefore not tailor-made, but is in principle ready for every possible buyer.

The Origin Paris

Just like haute couture, the term prêt-à-porter first appeared in Paris in 1930. The emergence of this fashion category was initially seen by fashion lovers as the end of the great fashion world. Mass production of clothes sounded like doom. Previously, only haute couture was regarded as real fashion. Since then, a distinction has been made between prestige fashion and consumer fashion. Prêt-à-porter clearly belongs to consumer fashion. But how did this actually come about? Everybody knows him. Yves-Saint Laurent was the first to make Prêt-à-porter collections. In 1966 he opened his first Prêt-à-porter boutique. From 1960 onwards, the most famous fashion designers began to design and present collections on a regular basis. The Prêt-à-porter collections in Italy really got going.

Milan in the center of fashion

Milan became the centre of this fashion category and the first fashion shows were also held there. The new collections were treated according to the motto “See now, buy now”. Customers had the opportunity to buy clothes that they had just been presented on the catwalk directly. This concept immediately inspired brands like Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren. The decisive factor for this development was the youth movement. The young people wanted changes in fashion.  Prêt-à-porter collections are also often presented to models floating across the catwalk. This is because fashion is seen and trends are set as a result. Of course not every trend prevails, but it is always worth a try. Even today, there are prêt-à-porter fashion weeks twice a year in Milan, Paris, London and New York. Once the spring-summer collection is presented and once the autumn-winter collection.  Prêt-à-porter has become an indispensable part of the fashion world. One of the co-founders of this fashion industry is Pierre Cardin. He developed his own women’s and men’s collection for this category. In this video you can see a prêt-à-porter fashion show by Chanel, one of the most famous companies in the fashion and cosmetics industry.

Prêt-à-porter – Just look, don’t buy?

In the course of time, different categories have formed within this fashion industry. It was all there. From folklore look with sweet patterns, androgynous fashion style to grunge and poor look. The various outfits are no longer only there to be viewed, but can even be purchased by interested parties. So not only fashion chains are among the places where you can buy such fashion, but also smaller boutiques that have somewhat more unusual pieces with them. Since online shopping has become so big and popular in our time, you can easily order prêt-à-porter fashion on the Internet. If you click on this category in an online shop, you won’t come across Everyday Basic, but also more unusual clothing that not everyone would wear. This picture is an example of how the grunge look was implemented.

Fashion-Weeks Prêt-à-porter

As already mentioned, fashion weeks on the subject of prêt-à-porter take place twice a year. In New York, Milan, London and Paris, the most diverse fashion types present the new ideas of the famous designers. Here you can see a nice example of the presentation of a spring-summer collection from 2015 at a Fashion Week in Paris. One girl more beautiful than the other and they all present the latest dresses and skirts. At the Fashion Week in Paris you will meet familiar faces. As you can see, it’s not as if celebrities are only interested in haute couture. Among the guests were celebrities such as Bill Kaulitz, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake.

Prêt-à-porter is divided into different fashion collections. There is the spring, summer collection called Resort fashion collection, the autumn, winter collection called Pre-Fall fashion collection. Then there is the Capsule Collection Mode, which cannot be assigned to any season. They appear irregular and unexpected.

High Fashion – How clothing became haute couture

In 1857/8 Charles Frederick Worth, the founder of Haute Couture, opened the first fashion house. The Englishman only wanted to sell his best pieces to the highest officials of the country. He had great influence on the fashion designers after him.  Since then, however, some time has passed and fashion is subject to constant change.

High Fashion: Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent

Emancipation by Haute Couture

In the past, women often had to cope with the household at home and men had to go to work and bring the money home.  In the middle of the 19th century the first sewing machine came onto the market and some women started to produce and pass on clothes in homework. After this development, haute couture came into being. In France, “haute couture” is a legally protected term reserved for the women’s fashion of fashion houses authorised by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to designate their works as haute couture. Haute couture basically stands for “upmarket tailoring”.  The profession of the fashion designer developed and there were more and more unique pieces and private orders. According to Charles Frederick Worth, famous French designers such as Christian Dior and Coco Chanel had a great influence on the development of haute couture. In 1868, the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture was founded, which was to be regarded as the worldwide representation of the craft trade.

High Fashion – Fashion in the course of time

The expenditure for the ladies fashion became bigger and bigger and the result more and more conspicuous. The women began to wear more and more skirts and tighter tops. It was particularly modern to appear on the street with a hat. A real fashion revolution began in 1900. Now changes began where it was possible. Women could proudly present themselves on catwalks and wear clothes that would have been unthinkable before. Women wore trousers or short skirts for the first time. During this time, Yves Saint Laurent ensured that women could even present themselves in transparent dresses and blouses. The society saw the whole thing mixed, some held their hands only shaking their heads in front of their eyes and many women, on the other hand, were completely enthusiastic. Yves Saint Laurent was not only once a hot topic of discussion at this time, he became again the topic of conversation number 1, when many different figure-hugging completely black dresses, reminiscent of rocker fashion, were launched on the market.  Not only the trousers for the woman were copied from the men’s fashion. From then on, some of the women’s wardrobes also contained plain, practical clothing that did not have to be overly striking. From now on, the woman could always dress appropriately for the occasion. The women became more and more independent and the skirts shorter. From also times sporty appearance of the woman became elegance. The skirts and blouses of the women were accentuated in some places, but only so that it still looked elegant and not too naked. An example for you, so that you can imagine this time better, is the Godet-Rock. With the time it came to princess dresses and even costumes. The blouses of the ladies were more and more often equipped with shoulder pads.

Christian Dior brings new fashion ideas

In the middle of the 20th century Christian Dior brought new impetus to the fashion world. They say fashion comes back over time. In Christian Dior’s fashion, you can see that’s true. He puts again on wide skirts and narrow tops. At the beginning of the fashion world the famous female designers were rather women, in the middle of the 20th century there were many male designers. The bottom, the breasts and the hips of the woman were more and more accentuated in fashion. In the 60’s the jeans finally gained acceptance in Europe and until today they have persisted in the fashion industry. Another scandal in the fashion industry was the mini skirt. At first he was only represented in the youth and there was much discussion about it. With toys like the Barbie doll children were taught from an early age what is beautiful and so the first big scandal finally prevailed as a very long-lasting fashion trend.

The latest high fashion trends

As already mentioned, all fashion trends come back again and again, becoming even more extreme and diverse. Nowadays there is hardly any taboo topic. There is no limit to the creativity of the designers and everything that is possible is tried out. So we live in a very beautiful fashion era, in which we can live out ourselves perfectly and wear what we want. From PVC clothing, fringe clothing, oversize coats to crazy animal prints, everything is included. Let’s see what great fashion trends we can still experience.

Famous High Fashion Designer

There are countless high fashion designers who are responsible for the incredible variety on the catwalks and the constant change.  Everyone influences or has influenced the fashion world in their own way.

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel probably tells everyone something. Her real name was actually Gabrielle Chanel. She was one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century. Coco Chanel, who grew up in an orphanage from the age of 13, draws an incredible amount of strength from her past and makes it to the very top of the fashion and beauty world. She’s a lion from the zodiac, which might explain her fighting spirit. Coco Chanel opens her first store at the age of 27 and changes the whole fashion world. There’s a lot of Chanel quotes. One of them is “I am against fashion that is fleeting. I can’t accept people throwing clothes away just because it’s spring.” Even today the Coco Chanel fans are completely crazy about the newest clothes. When a new collection is out, people immediately google: Chanel dresses. Coco Chanel has influenced the fashion world in many ways and left its mark. She adorned women’s fashion with long pearl necklaces, launched a very famous and successful perfume on the market, equipped handbags with chain straps and was particularly convincing with simple, knee-length dresses. However, the Chanel collections also have an incredible variety of different dresses to offer. The new autumn-winter collection includes many long and special dresses. Why don’t you see for yourself? And if you want to know more about Coco Chanel, you will also find a article about her life and her successes.

Calvin Small #Ck

Calvin Richard Klein is an American fashion designer who was born in New York City in 1942.  He graduated in fashion design in 1963. Calvin then worked for fashion houses until he finally launched his first collections. Calvin Klein convinces with simple, timeless designs and inspires fashion lovers again and again. Calvin Klein underwear is particularly popular. Everyone wants to own them, everyone wants to have at least one of the simple colours in their wardrobe. The sweaters are also particularly popular. Everyone probably knows the famous Calvin Klein lettering, which can be found on almost every Calvin Klein T-shirt and sweater.  But how do Calvin Klein and Haute Couture fit together? In fact, they go pretty well together. Under the name you will find not only simple basics, but also striking, unique fashion creations. Here you are Rihanna in a dress designed by Calvin Klein.

Christian Dior

Christian Dior was one of the most important fashion designers of the 20th century. He even founded his own fashion house in France. Not only did he revolutionise fashion in the middle of the 20th century, he still presents haute couture collections under his name today. His autumn-winter haute couture fashion show featured a wide variety of cut dresses, trouser suits and skirts. Usually the works are simply kept in one colour, but nevertheless they become something very special through special cuts and forms. His fashion above all very varied. It is not only limited to simple, elegant designs, but there are also striking, extravagant dresses. Christian Diors’ fashion fits perfectly into the haute couture category and will probably always remain very popular. See for yourself:

Michael Kors

Michael Kors has been at the forefront of high fashion for a long time. Everybody wants her. The Michael Kors bag. They come in all colours. You can combine it very well, because it is very often monochrome and still very high quality processed and looks. Michael Kors watches and shoes are also very popular. In one of our articles we wrote about ladies luxury watches, where watch lovers should definitely have a look. Haute couture fashion by Michael Kors is above all one thing: varied. If you look at the Winter Haute Couture by Michael Kors one thing immediately becomes clear, Michael Kors stands for colours. It is always combined again, what the stuff holds completely in contrast to the bags, which are often kept monochrome.

Philipp Plein

German fashion designer Philipp Plein has always been creative. The 40-year-old has put together his first bags and accessories from remaining exotic leathers. The Philipp Plein Jeans is particularly famous. Everyone wants them, there are them for women, for men in all different colours, shapes and sizes. But since not everyone can afford such expensive designer jeans, there is only 30 minutes from Düsseldorf enternt a Designer Outlet, where among other great Haute Couture brands there is also a Philipp Plein Store. If there is time and some money on the weekend, you should definitely stop by there. But what kind of haute couture comes onto the market under the name of Philipp Plein? They are very unusual, extravagant creations that appear under the name Philipp Pleins in the haute couture industry. Convince yourself:

London Fashion Week 2018

The London Fashion Week 2018 featured famous faces. Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss were seen together. They’ve always had a good relationship. The show ideas on this evening were once again great. There was an impressive laser show relative to the end. The Burberry collection in particular was particularly present at this Fashion Week. Italian designer Riccardo Tisci presented his first collection for Burberry. He not only changed the logo, but also the pattern of the company. Not only the models on the catwalks present the latest collection, but also Burberry lovers like Sienna Miller sat in the audience. An anti-fur demonstrator who walked on the catwalk caused a lot of excitement at this fashion week. Some very special evening dresses have attracted a lot of attention. Didn’t get enough?

The presentation of the new fashion took place in the E-Werk of the main location of Mercedes Benz.

Haute Couture and Prêt-à-porter – the difference

Haute couture and prêt-á-porter. What’s that, anyway? Haute couture garments are made of very high quality material. Haute couture is the “leading tailoring art” for fashion. It is mostly handmade and therefore requires many hours of work. Haute couture has above all one task: to set trends. If you want to own a haute couture garment, you have to spend a lot of money, if you can sell it at all.  Prêt-à-porter, on the other hand, translated means “ready to wear”. This term refers to clothing sold in several sizes by fashion chains.

Prêt-à-porter – Zara, H&M, New Yorker, Vero Moda

Since you can’t always spend a lot of money on a basic shirt, if you want to buy everyday clothes, you usually head for shops like Zara, H&M or Vero Moda. These fashion chains offer fashionable clothing produced in large quantities and in all possible sizes. Without such fashion chains, the average citizen would probably only have a quarter of the clothes currently in the wardrobe. If you want to know more about prêt-à-porter fashion, read my extra article: Prêt-à-porter.

Haute Couture Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein

Haute couture only left to the very rich? No way. Just watching the models at a Fashion Week presenting the latest collections, even if it’s just a video recording, is a great thing. Fashion is something very varied and exciting.

Whether it’s haute couture or prêt-à-porter, we can’t possibly do without both.

Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2019: Review of Shows & Fashion Pieces

Fashion Week is back! With impressive 32° degrees and star designers like Guido Maria Kretschmer but also Hugo Boss is back. We were there for you: 4 days S/S 19 (Spring-Summer collections for 2019). Berlin Fashion Week runs from Monday to Thursday and shows various shows by designers at the mainstage and various smaller side venues. Most of the hustle and bustle takes place on the Main Stage. Here are four to five fashion designer shows a day. International? Unfortunately not, Berlin Fashion Week is far away from the fashion weeks in London, Paris, Milan or New York. Nevertheless: A real highlight, especially in summer, when Berlin shows itself from its most beautiful sides. And this year, we were really lucky: 30°, 31° and 32° – thanks to air conditioning, doable. Whether big fashion magazines like Vogue in InStyle, the strongest fashion designers from Berlin and Germany or also bloggers, VIPs, musicians and actors. This week all meet to celebrate in Berlin and fashion. From the boutique owner who looks at the fashion fairs around Seek and Premiere or Influencer and fashion magazines at the shows – there’s something for everyone. I take you today, also every day and our highlights of the Berlin Fashion Week S/S 2019.

+ AD + Do you know?

First, here are the highlights and failures of Fashion Week S/S 19

Highlights and failures of Fashion Week S/S 19

For me, Fashion Week S/S 19 can summarize you like this

Top: Fashion Week back in Berlin Mitte

  • Main Stage Location back in Berlin Mitte, near Potsdamer Platz / Mall Of Berlin / Bundesrat
  • strong designers from Berlin with established and newcomers
  • Stage full seated (no standing room) and great sound in industrial buildings

Fail! No lounge, no electricity (mobile phone), no water

  • Networking used to be: Please don’t stay too long! No drinks from ever popular Jules Mumm and no water for spectators (32° degrees outside temperature). Drinks bought at the location may not be taken along, drinks in bags already – eh? We had to refill our purchased water bottles into plastic cups first, on instruction. Back at the entrance we had to throw them away, “you can’t take them in”. In my pocket are two glass water bottles – ok.
  • Rebelpin Fashion Awards by Acte – Puh, later you read more, that’s boring. Welcome to the year 1970! The Design Award (Europe-wide) is certainly a great idea, the presentation, the show, the performance of the presenter and the jazz band – disaster! It’s only stupid when you can’t walk for 45 minutes. Conclusion: Buy a Spotify subscription!

Shows: Guido Maria Kretschmar, rebekka ruétz, Lana Müller, Ivanman and I’VR

Anyone who knows Berlin Fashion Week and has already visited a few seasons knows that quality varies from year to year. Sometimes you meet in beautiful locations and sometimes in shady locations, for example in Berlin Wedding. This year they decided to go downtown again. Great idea! As in 2015, at that time still at the Brandenburg Gate, very chic, a real highlight. Shortly afterwards we went to the Erika-Hess-Eisstadion (prefabricated building in Wedding) and then to the department store Jahndorf (no style, XY building in Berlin). Fashion needs a nice environment, of course. Therefore a great idea to go back to Berlin Mitte! After all, you meet friends, colleagues and many new people you would never have met otherwise in the office or in the editorial office. Well, we’re back in.

Day 1+2: Fashion Week has to wait, no Guido

Day 1 consisted for me first of a lecture, still far away from the Berlin – influencer marketing – then it went Tuesday morning by express into the capital. That’s why Monday and the weekend before had to be cancelled, which is very practical to “arrive” in Berlin. Unfortunately, we also missed a real highlight that Guido Maria Kretschmar had already created for OTTO. Very everyday fashion from the star designer. Here are some highlights of the GMK x OTTO Show in Berlin:

Highlights: Guido Maria Kretschmar x OTTO

We finally arrived in Berlin – 11.51 pm, at least on Tuesday. Quickly into the apartments and in a few hours our Fashion Week Berlin S/S 19 starts with great shows by rebekka ruétz, old friends like Ivanman but also new highlights like Lana Müller and the always charming (every show a highlight, you will see later) I’VR: Isabel Vollrath.

Day 3: Rebekka Ruétz and Model Agency Casting

Instead of the usual plane ride, this time we went to Berlin in a van – full of cameras, photographer, videographer, editorial staff and me! Parallel to Fashion Week there are many more to experience: Photoshootings with international models who travel especially to Berlin or also model castings. The first appointment: The Model Casting of Cocaine Models at Alexander Platz in the House Of Weekend. Parallel to Fashion Week the agency was looking for models – Curvy, High Fashion – we are there! Over 250 pre-registrations, including 50 invitations and three hours for small talk, catwalk and posing. Phew, before that we went to the wonderful Rebekka Ruétz, to the Spring-Summer 2019 show:

style ranking: 8.4 / 10

Colors, so many colors. While many designers in their S/S 19 rely on muted tones, white, beige, the new fashion collection for the coming spring/summer season from rebekka ruétz brings colour accents. Matching the title of the collection: MAKE LOVE GREAT AGAIN, my first show of the season, in Berlin, since we were on the road in southern Germany before. All the better that it is directly rebekka ruétz, who we have accompanied for a long time and are always looking forward to her presentation. Not only we wanted to see the new collection, but also prominent guests like Alexandra Polzin, Annabelle Mandeng, Bahar Kizil, Caro Cult, Eva Nürnberg, Kathi Wörndl, Katrin Wrobel, Lea Mornar, Marie von den Benken (columnist), Rolf Scheider (casting director and former GNTM jury member), Stephanie Stremler and Tanja Bülter. The highlights of the show:

Cocaine Models Agency Casting with us and RTL

Curvy Models – Strong theme! Not only men bloggers Riccardo Simonetti was looking for Curvy Models at the Berlin Fasion Week for a show in Hamburg, also Cocaine Models was from the game and was looking for new top models over the rooftops of Berlin (House of Weekend) from 19-22 o’clock. High Fashion & Plus Size. At the casting were also 3 Germany’s Next Topmodels of the current season, plus a camera team from RTL and the top location: The House of Weekend.

Day 4: Ivanman, Lana Müller and I’VR Isabel Vollrath

Day three was the start of our shows this year. Ivanman was one of the very few highlights at Berlin Fashion Week for men. The bag is packed, here we go. Today, our editor Natascha and two friends or bloggers. Perfect weather, 32°, blue sky. The first and only show for men’s fashion, upcoming for Spring/Summer 2019.

Ivanman – jacket, jacket, coat

block rate>style ranking: 7.9 / 10

We have been accompanying Ivanman since the beginning and are looking forward to his shows every year. Because he shows cuts that are wearable for Fashion Victoms, but also a few Pieces that are over the top. But for Berlin Mitte, Hamburg or the short trip to London and Paris is just the right thing! For the S/S 19 Ivanman uses colours, blue and red. The show convinces with strong, striking faces of the male models and a strong beat that accompanies the show from beginning to end, without interruption.

Here are my highlights from Ivanman for you:

Lana Müller – I would buy these outfits to my girlfriend

style ranking: 8.6 / 10

We visited Lana Müller for the very first time, we were very curious to see her first collection at the Berlin Fashion Week. My highlight by Lana Müller? Super wearable fashion, very chic, airy and a look in which everyone would like to see their girlfriend. The show starts with singer, the transition is seamless. Basses fill the room, showtime starts! All in all a strong first appearance and here we have all highlights of the S/S 19 collection of Lana Müller in Berlin.

I’VR – Isabel Vollrath: A breeze of calm and elegance

style ranking: 9.1 / 10 + extra point for’enchant’

After Lana Müller put another topping for the evening? Welcome to I’VR. Every season, I’VR enchants with little special features that not all fashion designers at Fashion Week think of. For example, Seating Cards. In the cards, you will find some information about the new collection, the materials and the thoughts under which the collection was created. A great idea, because it can take 30, 40 minutes from the entrance to the beginning of a fashion show – if you’re unlucky. It might be a clever idea to appear shortly before the event, but on the other hand the best places will be filled. I’ve been waiting for about 20 minutes now – and I’d like to point out the “No drinks in the show” problem this season. I’m dying of thirst! But I’VR can’t help that. Fashion Week planning is. Luckily I have two water bottles in my bag and another orange juice from the Mall Of Berlin. At least the supermarkets in the area benefit from the “drinks” ban. Let’s go: I’VR!

Lights out, spotlight on. The sound of the sea, how nice. A quiet, slightly rising bass feels the rows and the hall. The first model, elegant, almost floating, light fabrics, the sound of the sea, a very magical moment after three days of hustle and bustle. Like every year: I’VR enchants! Thank you for the moment! A great show with many highlights, here are a few pieces we really want to show you!

We are still waiting for the cut of the current S/S 19, as long as Isabel Vollrath’s last show at Berlin Fashion Week.

Rebelpin Fashion Awards by Acte: Get a Spotify Abo – Fail!

style raking: 3.2 / 10

Can I be angry? The moderation would have fit perfectly into the Federal Chancellery (directly opposite), with an audience of around 60, politicians, professors… at an evening gala. But not here! It’s Fashion Week, come on! Welcome to the year 1970, as you look at the Rows across the street, one yawn after another.

Apart from that, the designers and their collection pieces (3 each) were really great and varied. From the absolutely wearable to the fashion made for shows. But…

The opening moderation is agonizingly long, far from modern and light years from a fashion week! Long, seven minutes later it should finally start. And the band, is it staying or was the 70s music just for the boring moderation? They stay. No! Already at the first fly (run of the models) and the feeling: Get away! Unfortunately, the exit is on the other side and we would have to walk over the catwalk, in front of all the people, photographers and the boring moderation. Right now, I take my notebook and start with the article. I’m flattened with boredom, the shows are already 35 minutes long and we are still not at the end.

Even after 42 minutes, I’m still torturing myself. In front, a 60-year-old man speaks into the microphone with a low voice. Somebody here, somebody there. Drumroll from the 70s drums. Stop at that spot! Fiasco! For next year: Please engage a person who knows about moderation and fashion. Someone with friends, someone to watch and please: Get a Spotify subscription! I’ve had enough of jazz, that’s enough. I can’t take any more. Over and out, please!

But no – and I won’t bother you – now there were prizes in three categories and of course everyone wants to say something else, some vice president from somewhere. Monotone, without emotion. Next time I’ll make you a video, post on our YouTube channel and whenever you can’t fall asleep, check out Rebelpin’s moderation.

Fail!

Fashion Week S/S 2019 Berlin: Well done!

Fashion Week was short for me this season – but a real highlight in July 2018 – especially the new move to Berlin’s city centre has really paid off for the flair that fashion needs to be effective. The location, that E-Werk, really gives something away. The only small drawback is that there is no longer a large lounge where you can really network. Especially at such a fashion event! After all, you travel from Germany and all over Europe. There should always be a place to get to know each other.

Apart from that, Fashion Week was excellently organised. Even the decorative elements (palm trees) were right down to the last detail. It was also great in the new location that there are no more standing places, but everything fills up in the row of seats. So everyone has the possibility to take a seat and does not have to wait long in a standing position. Very important for us as editors!

Matching to it, also all shows, very well done (only on a choreography one should work, one turns on 3m in front of the photo wall, the other 5m, then 1m, turn left, turn right). The sound is right, the basses roll through the rows, variety, from deep house, to hard beats, to soft sea noise and relaxing music at I’VR. A good mix that makes the shows different and interesting.

Are we as good as London, Paris and Milan? Unfortunately not! Nevertheless, as every season, Berlin Fashion Week is worth a visit. Especially this season the event came back and was a lot of fun, nice location, well organized. Next: Düsseldorf + London.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018: Fabianxarnold explores fashion in Down Under

Model and social media influencer Fabian Arnold or better known as Fabianxarnold is currently in Australia doing one year of work and travel. He takes his fans not only into the jungle, but also to numerous fashion and fitness events. The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, which took place from 13.05. to 19.05.2018 in Sydney, was of course also visited. What bizarre trends he encountered in Down Under, what personalities he got to know this week, and even more you can find out in this blog post.

Fashion Week Sydney – My Personal Experiences and Experiences

I have been living in Sydney for more than a month now and can say that it is an incredibly horny city. Not only the weather, but also the people, the air and the vibe give you an incredible life energy! Just before Fashion Week, this vital energy was transformed into a huge anticipation. I hadn’t looked forward to a week as much as I did to the #MBFW Australia 2018! As a backpacker I was very limited in my selection of outfits and actually had nothing reasonable for the fashion week, so I was kindly provided with outfits for Fashion Week by the International Fashion Group. Many thanks for that!

On the month 14.05.2018 I finally started to the Fashion Week to visit my first show. Of course I was extremely excited because I didn’t know a single person at Fashion Week. But luckily this has changed in no time at all! On the first day I was still alone and very lost, but on the second day I met two stylists from Melbourne, a model and a social media star from Sydney, whom I can now count among my friends. With these, Fashion Week was even more fun than I had actually thought. Unlike Fashion Week in Berlin, Fashion Week in Sydney is centrally structured. That means the shows are, with few exceptions, all in the same place. This makes it very comfortable for the visitors, because you don’t have to change places between shows all the time. I also felt that the #MBFW Australia was much smaller than any other fashion week I had visited before. After 2 days I had already seen all visitors, photographers, models and bloggers. All in all it was an extremely cool week in which I got to know a lot of nice people and gained experience! Oh…Almost forgotten… The fashion was of course also very cool 😀 But more about that in the next section!

The most bizarre trends in Down Under 2018

On this topic I have to say right at the beginning that fashion in Australia is not as bizarre as I imagined it to be. Of course there were outfits there, which are very unique. But even that I would wear. And anyone who knows me knows that I dress rather simply and in street style. By the way… I was even on the cover of the best streetstyle of #MBFW Australia 2018 on the GQ Australia website.

But now back to the topic Trends in Down Under 2018: The video below shows a small excerpt from the St George Nextgen Show. The colours yellow, green and orange are often used. The neck is always covered, whether by a scarf or a turtleneck sweater. Personally, I really like this style. It’s something different and stands out from the normal black, white, grey street style. Besides the shows of Double Rainbow, Blair Archibald and Justin Cassin I liked this show the best. But maybe it was simply because men’s outfits were introduced. Almost all the other shows were about women.

But I would also like to deal with that. For this I fade in here again a short video of the show The Innovators. The outfit shown here represents the women’s fashion at #MBFW Australia 2018 very well! A lot of work is done with white. The small details are very beautifully worked out. Furthermore, the outfits are often played with sex appeal.

Personalities at the #MBFW Fashion Week 2018 in Sydney

As I already told in the article above, the first day was really shitty… I didn’t know anyone at the Fashion Week in Australia… Unfortunately there was no opportunity to meet people either. But there are days like that. The most important thing is not to be discouraged and simply to continue. Tuesday, the second day, was much better. I had met several models, stylists and journalists. Everything went like a pyramid scheme and within one day I got to know 50% of the people who were at the Fashion Week in Sydney. Among them were many photographers, bloggers and models. My closest friends include Caspar Thomas (@caspar_thomas), Phillip Robert Holmes (@philliprobert) and Charlie Taylor (@charlietaylor). The most famous person was Matthew David Johnson (@matthewdavidjohnson), the Bachelor Australia of last season, with whom I talked briefly. On Instagram I saw Tammy Hembrow (@tammyhembrow 8.2m Followers) visiting the GIA show. But I was already at home, maybe next time… 😀

A week full of stress – Fashion Week

For me, not a week has been as stressful as the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia 2018 in Sydney. I met so many people this week and experienced so much that I can’t remember everything. I was at Fashion Week from Monday to Thursday morning to evening and took almost every show with me. Even if I have to wait a bit until I have the next big event, I am very happy that this week is finally over! Now it’s time to review and evaluate all the photos, videos, impressions and contacts!

Bonjour Paris! Fashion Week Paris – the latest trends of the new season

The fashion month is almost over and finds its conclusion and climax in the capital of France. The cream of the fashion industry is gathering this week to see the trends of the new season A / W 2018/19. Of course FIV Magazine is right in the middle and reports on the trends for the coming season!

Fashion Week Paris – my personal experiences

My journey started early Wednesday morning when I boarded the train from Cologne to Paris. With full anticipation in the luggage, I arrived in Paris and checked in first in my hotel. At the reception the first invitation to the show on Friday awaited me, which was deposited there for me. After unpacking and sorting after a small suitcase, we went straight to the city of love.

For my short trip, I was allowed to make a little stopover on Reservations before the departure on Tuesday and equip myself with some parts for the Fashion Week, because especially at a fashion event, the matching outfit is of course crucial. The new collection from Reserved is very trendy and characterized by eye-catching color accents, elegant fabrics and modern influences. Which parts I have chosen and how I combined them for the special event you can see in the videos + photos in this article.

In the following days a wild mix of typical Touri sightseeing, Fashion Week feeling, and great insider spots awaited me – you’ll learn more about that at the end of the article. Of course it is very important to have the right footwear for such an eventful trip. Personally, I am a human being, I wear almost always high shoes in everyday life, but I can not recommend this even for high-heels lover in a city trip, because you are running but more than you think and of course thank the feet the flat shoes. My luck – at Reserved I found quite a few super comfortable sneakers that proved to be perfect travel companions. Because they are not only comfortable, but also visually a highlight and something very special.

Paris is so much variety and variety that you would probably need weeks to look at all the highlights there. But my absolute favorite spots in the city have a special wow factor. The small island in the Seine, on which Notre Dame and Sainte-Chapelle are located, because especially in summer this small patch of earth is surrounded by so much magic. Small markets with an incredible selection of flowers and food, stroll along the banks of the Seine and just let your mind wander. This peace in a city that is still so big radiates from the Eifel tower. Strolling through the park or sitting in a small café and enjoying the sun on your skin makes Paris something special.

Last but not least, I still have some restaurant recommendations, as they have me so excited, of course, it is not difficult to find great restaurants in Paris, because they are there like sand on the sea, but these three I can for personal tests only recommend. Very close to the hotel I found by chance the pizzeria Lucky Luciano. The pizzas are a dream come true. I tasted the pizza with buffalo mozzarella and rucula – just great (and not overcrowded).
In a completely different corner, it was me for lunch. Directly at the Sacre Coeur is a great and above all local restaurant with traditional French food. There you get a menu (3 courses) already for 16 euros – and that is really a bargain for Parisian prices. I tasted French onion soup, traditional potato casserole and – how could it be otherwise – Crepe.

Fashion Week Paris – shows & the trends of the new season

Of course, the shows were the highlight of the trip, because in Paris means Fashion Week again something different, as in Berlin. Fancy outfits, special celebrities everywhere cameras and everything according to the motto: ‘See and be seen’. Not only the so-called “Buyers” visited the special events, but also a lot of press, special personalities, like Blogger and of course the fashionistas and real Parisienne of the city. With lots of kisses, old well-known people were greeted before the show and then, of course, the main topic of conversation was first of all the designer and guesses about the new collection. The collections were especially staged and thus presented the trends of the new season.

Uma Wang Show A / W 2018/19 – Warm Colors, Oversized & Unisex

The Uma Wang Show took place on the 1st of March in an impressive presentation. An old library in a still active school. The parts of the Asian designer were very unusual. Particularly eye-catching, the warm colors stung. Many red, beige and brown tones. Many parts were oversized, such as giant bags, coats, blazers and dresses. The women’s fashion was characterized by many masculine influences. Jackets, trousers and thick wool coats. The designer interprets the trends of the new season in a very own and creative way, thus keeping to her style.

Andrew Gn Fashion Show AW 2018/19 – Velvet Boots, Ruffles & Timeless Elegance

The Andrew Gn Fashion Show took place on the 2nd of March in a beautiful ballroom of a classic Parisian hotel. The pink catwalk matched the elegant parts of the collection as well as the beatiful music. The designer’s collection was reflected in the versatility and influence of different cultures. Concise stitched out embroidery, which emphasized both garments tone on tone and in contrasting colors. From the special collection, the designer sets trends for the next season. Velvet Boots both over – and Underknee in colors such as dark green or magenta, but also ruffles, which the designer put oversized scene.

Travel Tips & Tricks in Paris – Restaurants, Attractions & The Best Photo Spots

A weekend in Paris can quickly get stressful. There is a lot to see in the city of love and of course you want to take as much as you can. But what are the Places To Be and which sights can one also save?

Restaurants Paris – something for every taste

Paris is teeming with cafés and restaurants. My personal recommendation (after careful consideration) is definitely the ‘Le Comptoir de Pantheon’, where you can enjoy not only delicious coffee and desserts, but also the traditional French Croque Madame – a crusty bread topped with ham, cheese and an egg French fries and salad – and of course Mamma Primi, an Italian restaurant that offers incredibly tasty buffalo mozzarella pizza and the ‘Gnocchi Gnocchi on Heaven’s Door’ (gnocchi with tomato sauce baked with cheese). Two real insider tips for the Schlemmer among us.

Sights & Photo Spots – the most beautiful places Paris

Nobody can deny that Paris is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but as a tourist it is important to plan well and be prepared. To save you some work here are the tips for the best sights and photo spots:

Arc de Triumph – Champs Elysee – Pont Alexandre III – Grand Palais – Tour Eifel

You can plan these sights for a day, because once you have reached the rest on foot. Starting at the Grand Palais (where, among others, the Chanel + Louis Vuitton Show took place) a beautiful palace, which is also great for photos, you walk only about 100-200m until you are in the middle of the Pont Alexandre III. A stunning bridge with golden ornaments, from which you can also take a look at the Eifel tower – this is also a popular spot for beautiful photos. From there, it’s a 5-minute walk to Avenue Montaigne. Nothing for Shoppaholics, because there are the most luxurious fashion houses housed. From Chanel to Dior, Prada and Yves Saint Laurent you will find everything your luxury heart desires. If you run this to the end, you are already in the middle of the Champs Elysee with the Arc de Triumphe, which drifts at the end of the road. Also, this one is great for pictures but watch out – goes to the opposite side of the Arc de Triumph (not where he goes to the Champs Elysee) because there is much less bustle and your pictures are all the more beautiful! Not to forget, of course, the Eiffel tower, the spot of spots in Paris for great pictures!
