KUNSTHOCHSCHULE BERLIN WEIBENSEE-NEW TALENT GRADUATES




BERLIN FASHION WEEK

Words, Pics- Judith Ecochard


One of the reasons Berlin is bustling is that compared to other fashion forward cities like Milan, Paris and London…rents here are cheap. Cheaper than Manhattan, in fact.





The wave of creative types descending on this city is partially reflected in the student population. There are eight major fashion schools here...





and each is an avant-garde factory of talent.





THE SHOW: By our count, there were over 12-14 students showing anywhere from 10-12 looks apiece…we could not keep track - as there was no run of show-and the runway event went on way too long.

Note to producers…limit students to three to four key looks…and have the whole show with at MOST…60 looks.





Even the polite crowd was stirring…and people left.

BUT: It’s obvious that there is true talent in this graduating class.

FABRICS WERE EXCEPTIONAL-we hope the deft use of quality and color finds its way across the big, blue ocean.
