Last week Berlin Fashion Week made the city go round. Our very own Lisa, aka @spiegeleule, spent most of her week running from one show to the next, getting up close & personal with models & designers and enjoying free drinks at parties.
Doesn’t sound too bad, huh?Here are her 5 ultimate reasons why you definitely shouldn’t miss the opportunity to attend Fashion Weekin your city.
1. You’ll have the perfect light
Fashion shows are made for photographers. Every label loves to see stunning photos of their designs in glossy magazines. You’ll find perfectly lit runways and stunning motives at almost every show.All you have to do is find the right spot and shoot.
2. You’ll meet the most interesting people
Everybody knows that the fashion crowd is full of attention seekers that like to dress up. Just lift up your camera and they’ll be more than happy to have their photo taken.
3. You’ll see the latest in fashion
That’s what Fashion Week is about, right? If you have a thing for fashion, this is the place to see what’s hot next season. In Berlin I really enjoyed the shows of Achtland, Augustin Teboul and Perret Schaad the most this year.
4. You’ll get the chance to shoot models
It’s a model’s job to be photogenic. It’s yours to make the most out of it. Fashion week is the best place to get some of the world’s most beautiful faces in front of your lens. Just sneak in backstage after a show and you’ll have plenty to shoot.
5. You’ll have some crazy parties and a lot of free drinks
Let’s be honest: if you can’t get tickets for the show, at least get into the parties. It’s paradise. All these fashion professionals gathering, enjoying free drinks at the most incredible locations in town. Happy Fashion Week!
