Our Top 4 Designers From Berlin Fashion Week SS18
Over the last couple of days, the German fashion scene came together to celebrate new talents during Berlin Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018. Besides partying, Berlin stands for innovation, creativity and modernism. We took a closer look at this season's newcomers to show you what we liked and what we didn’t. Well mostly, we likey!
Part of the presented “The Censorship” collection is strongly inspired by the Asian style: Chinese brocade characters with denim mashups can be seen on many tops and shorts along with Kimono-style shirts in leather. Transparent PVC jackets and pants made it impossible for the models walking down the runway to hide—or to censor themselves you could say. Statements were printed on underwear and clubbing towels along with erotic prints to showcase the desire of freedom—something that Berlin, more than any other city, represents. Belts and chains were attached between the model's legs, a silent comment on sexual oppression and lust of the flesh. Atelier About is definitely worth keeping on your tracker.

Fire street elements!

Without Sadak, Berlin Fashion Week is NO fashion week!
The clothing is innovative and unique, while still incorporating distinctive elements from a variety of preceding periods and cultures. As essential as the clothes themselves, the attitude, mood and statements about individuality and independence are visible in the model cast.
