Berlin Fashion Week

What to wear when you're there

I was recently invited to Berlin Fashion Week to view the new Spring Summer 2012 shows. I've visited Berlin several times in the past and I also have friends there, so it gave me the perfect excuse to do a little Style Traveller blogging.

Street Style
Taking photos outside the Berlin Fashion Week pavilion and the shows proved to be quite an eye opener. In previous seasons I have come to expect severe tailoring, deconstructed cutting, minimalism and a sea of black and grey at the Berlin shows. I was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite this time. Ok, ok, so black is and always will be on the agenda at any fashion week, however the shock outsider this season was bold colour, especially neons, reds and oranges (even on the boys). Berliners seem to have injected more fun into their wardrobes this season.
