Berlin Fashion Week is a creative and jam packed collection of trade shows, presentations and runway shows---that take place all over the city...

One stalwart of German design, Dorothee Schumacher showed fashion savvy designs with international appeal...for a woman much like herself, multi-tasking women...who want to looked pulled together, no matter the occasion.

Make-up on all-bold red matte lip with softly rimmed eyes-pnkish brown...flawless skin with a hint of blush

Schumacher is one of our favorite designers---of apparel and accessories. We guess an American equivalent might be the high end offerings of Donna Karan = and for Fall/Winter 2013 that meant sumptuous, opulent fabrics-including silky satins, subtle glimmering lurex, tweeds, and trims of neoprene and coated leather... for day/evening, modern classics-sporty outerwear shapes-leather jackets, woolen parkas, short capes, oversized cashmeres with slim pants, 60's inspired tunics, blouson pull-overs with bell shaped skirts, hourglass shapes ...sophisticated and with body conscious silhouettes that would appeal to many different types of women.

Fall/Winter 2013 thematically sited the ROSE flower as an inspiration-both its beauty, "petal by petal" and it's thorns. 

Accessories included sleek oversized clutches-with studs or in rich suede - with jewel-like clasps...large enough for all the electronics we haul around...a feminine portfolio brief.
