TOP 3 shows of MBFW Berlin SS 18
MBFW Berlin SS 18
This season's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin was probably the most busy on I ever attended. As I photographed backstage and catwalk for @mbfw the schedule was pretty full. Out of a lot of shows, new designers and the presentations of "Der Berliner Modesalon", I picked out my three favourites below!

Hands down, one of my favorite shows of the week was the William Fan catwalk where he kept things entertaining with an outdoor, 00s themed catwalk at Kronprinzenpalais. The show opened with one of my model crushs Nicole Atieno who wore a velvet green pant suit and carried what looked like groceries and dry cleaning. It then went back behind the scenes the record switched to 00s hits (the Nanny soundtrack, the Simpsons, Gigi D'Agostino etc) and the rest of the collection was the finest mix of millenial trends and the famous elegant William Fan cuts. No exaggeration, I absolutely love each William Fan trench coat that was presented, especially the metallic burnt-orange. I think it's great how the collection doesn't shy away from the use of bright colors and I definitely need to get my hand on one of those bucket hats.
Along with the William Fan show, the Marina Hoermanseder catwalk also opened with Nicole Atieno, who may very well have been THE model of this season. Atieno began the show in a yellow floor-length and hooded rain jacket with nothing on underneath except a white matching lingerie set and thigh high boots. The outside venue was flooded just minutes before the show started which actually ended up being a nice effect as all the models had to walk on or through water. There were a lot of hints to Russia, it either being the life size Babuschka model or tatu music playing. I especially loved that as I was a huge tatu fan when I was a teenager. Marina Hoermanseder clothing is usually not the most practical (especially the “Strap Skirt” which is essentially made out of plastic), but the SS18 collection includes a series of raincoats and boot sets that are amazing and can be worn at various occasions. My favorite piece of the collection is probably the yellow raincoat that Nicole Atieno began the show in.
The Antonia Goy SS18 collection was the first one I saw during fashion week, taking place at the Kronprinzenpalais. I loved the colours and transparent pieces as well as the layering and the use of drapes. I also love the presentation as the models walked unsual routes and made it very easy to see the whole collection from a lot fo different angles. The only thing I didn't feel so much was the hair, but hey everyone has a different taste.
