With today being Friday the 13th and all, we wanted to highlight the Berlin designers who lit up the ramp with high-octane over-the-top-ness. 

 

So, here is part one  of our Berlin Fashion Week coverage of Spring/Summer 2013. Prepare to be amazed.

Every collection has a focus on the up-and-comers. And that’s the best part. In this case, the students of Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee were able to showcase their own creative fashion sensibilties with this special runway presentation. Experimental displays of cuts and layers and of course giving some sort of unearthly vibe in the masks and head covers. Logic be damned.

The students from the Universitat der Kunste Berlin (University of Arts Berlin) also had a little mystic fun with models sporting lucite face-covering masks, stockings, and of course crazy cool headpieces that sometimes we forgot where to look. Oh yeah, the clothes. Sheen, padding and an interesting use of wintery fabrics and transitional seasonal wear were put to the test in the most out-of-the-box, theatrical way possible. Flowing chiffon dresses boasting gorgeous gray gradients, military inspired pieces and the pretty fabulous off-the-shoulder parka-esque dress just makes you want to grab your scissors and deconstruct some of your own spring wardrobe.

If Tim Burton had a muse, I’m guessing she would be it. Lena Hoschek’s sense of humour is evident in this wonderfully Burton-esque approach to her model’s hair and makeup. A deliberate contrast to the classic cuts of the frocks that paraded down the ramp, her tongue-in-cheek collection was her homage to the Pin-Up Girl who didn’t take herself too seriously.
