At Berlin Fashion Week there was a particular collection that stood out amongst the rest and that was Markus Lupfer's Viva Baroque resort collection. A Native Designer but based in London, Lupfer brought a dose of fashion magic to the shows with his spectacular set. Collaborating with set designer Vincent Olivieri the designer explained:
"We have created three rooms within one room with fringes hanging from the ceiling to divide them. Each has a different theme - one has foil on the floor, another grass with mushrooms - so it's a bit fairytale - and the third is like a mirror cube."
The collection has brought praise from many key figures within the industry including star of 'The City' and Vogue.com presenter Olivia Palermo, who flew in especially for the presentation. She said: "I love the golden shirt dress. For me, his clothes are very wearable, great for every day,"
The latest round of shows from Berlin Fashion Week has provided, without a doubt, some of the most bizarre looks we've seen in awhile. Think arts-and-crafts ribbon neck plates, crystal-and-branch headwear and dogs walking the runway. That said, the more restrained collections brought in Blair Waldorf-style sweetness and a look or two that could work for next year's Ascot.
Overall, what do you think of the Berlin collections so far? Do you think Germany's fashion hub deserves its title as an emerging style capital?
We love the makeup from the Penkov runway yesterday at Berlin Fashion Week, but we want to know: what do you make of the clothes? We can think of more than a few mag editors who'd love them at first sight.
Recognise anyone in this picture? You should: it's the co-designer of Twenty8Twelve and the Oscar-winning best actor from 'The Pianist'. You'd be forgiven if you didn't recognise Berlin's Mayor Klaus Wowereit from this front-row shot from the Boss Orange show yesterday.
Now that the German city is establishing itself as a legit fashion capital, we have to ask: What do you think of the clothes from the latest Berlin Fashion Week shows?
