Like any other day
It is the fleeting moments that we remember
What is it that binds us to this place?
We come to this city
Each with hopes, dreams and fears
What’s been left behind is no more
Today we start anew
We are the loved and the misguided
Aspirations are what brings us
Harsh realities are what awaits
Who will I become
Where will I be
In this vast city it is easy to blend in
Even easier to feel alone
Try and see past the forest
Find your kingdom
Fight the good fight
Losing yourself is the only way
Look around you
Listen to the whispers
As that light gets brighter
Know that it burns for you
Know that you don’t stand-alone
We struggle to find our balance
We run thru with our heads in the clouds
Our hearts are wild
We search for meaning
Here we are sleep deprived and hungry
Waiting for fate to knock
As the city breathes life into us
We find our clarity
We know that today is not like any other day

We followed the Black Soma’s calling “Try the dark and mystical side of the mirror and find out!”.
Dark and mystical are the right words for describing this adventurous journey through their fashion show in Berlin last Wednesday. The designer Lukas Butkiewicz staged his new collection in an impressively different and artistical way. It was up to the visitor to move and to discover the dresses while walking through a mystical forest with models on swings or sitting on branches. And the dresses totally fit into this dark dreamworld. Straight lines and black plumes leapt to the eye and gave a raven-like impression. We discovered many cocktail dresses and evening growns – but everything seemed to be charmed – in a positive way. You felt like seeing fashion of another beautiful world. And then there was this one girl that got our attention. She was different. She was the only one dressed in white – a gleam of light in the deep forest.
This show was a great experience with a wonderful and charming new collection.
A big thank you to our Fashion Week Virgin Ella Wunderland for this little report from the Black Soma showcase!
Monday Fashion Week night out here come some impressions of the catwalk at LNFA2 store at Bikini Berlin. Between the empty rags a catwalk, a dj desk, a bar, a make up table of JACKS Beauty Department (thanks, I love my new neon orange lipstick) and many happy fashion people. On the catwalk Bélier, Maisonnoèe and Studio GAMPE. Each of them with their very special presentation if dj and violin combo or live moderation.
Good morning fashion world. Our first show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin this Monday morning is the Stage Show of the Berlin label Ivanman by designer Ivan Mandzukic.
Scattered in the white room on platforms male models are standing like frozen. Resisting the pushing mass of press and fashion people who try to get the best picture. Dressed in classy black suit pants color blocking dominates the upper components of the outfits. Whether brown shirts with purple fine knit sweater, pink jackets with orange applications, a brown coat with pink lining or an orange with orange combination. A little out sticking an off-white combination with just a little pink somehow perfectly fits into the rest of the collection.
Dandy Men Fashion with a love for details. And if you are too shy for the total color blocking on the top you still can walk on chromatic heels but do not forget the loud socks.
Today Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin has started.
A freezing cloudy busy morning. To avoid the public transport we choose bicycle and longboard. A longboard is not a fashion accessory we had to discover. The friendly security staff did not let us in and there was no chance do get the board stored. Thanks to the super courteous Adlon people who took care of the wooden rolling piece for some hours. You guys rock!
What we did on Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin 2015: Colour blocking at the Stage Show of Ivanman, an etno explosion at Sadak, black at Sopopular and a real Berlin style closing of the day at the LNFA Store at the BIKINI Berlin.
This season my flowers wear glas.
