Starting Up. My first day at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin started with the Spring/Summer 2016 collection for Minx by Eva Lutz. Before the show, a red carpet leading into the interior of the fashion temple was surrounded by multiple spectators and photographers, waiting to see and capture all the arriving celebrities.
The Inner Circle. At the counter, you were accredited and allowed to go along the sponsor corridor. Small stands, bars and a staircase to the VIP Room made up the place. A little further, you could enjoy a sun lounger in the courtyard and savor an ice cream by airline German Wings, one of the sponsors of the event. In one hand, the ice cream, in the other hand, a Cranberry Elderflower drink from Jules Mumm, while I was enjoying the sun rays.
Heading to the Runway. The entrance to the runway was becoming fuller and fuller. The doors were opened and the crowd streamed into the room. The first two rows were reserved for celebrities, certain press people, buyers, etc. From the third row up, the remainder was allowed to get a place. The view to the runway was great, as I sat right in the middle.
The Celebrities. On the first Row, pop singer Nena and TV presenter Desiree Nosbusch sat with their daughters. Actresses Andrea Sawatzki, Christine Neubauer, Natalia Wörner and Jeanette Hain were also present, among many other recognizable faces.
The Show. As the lights went dim and the music started to play, the first model walked down the runway. Delicate designs were dominating the catwalk. Suddenly, a thunderous applause. A beautiful size 44/46 model with real curves strutted down the catwalk, followed by another amazing plus size model. From that moment on, it wasn't easy for top-models like Franziska Knuppe or Louisa Hartema to enforce. The audience was fascinated by the stunning plus-size models.
The Collection. Beautiful, delicate substances, powdery tones and enchanting designs made the Minx by Eva Lutz Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Soft colors and beautiful falling materials looked great, both in a size 0 and in a size 44 and the models presented it in a very effortless way, totally relaxed and always with smiling faces. I was enchanted.
