Berlin Fashion Week - Ecology, Carnival, Shimmering Jeans

The kick off at Berlin Fashion Week July 2008 was presented yesterday by LAC ET MEL' 20s inspired collection. Dropped waist, eccentric dresses in nature's colours were given a funky boost with contrasting fuchsia tights. Not only has the label proven itself to be fashionable, but also brings to light the environmental protection our planet needs. Ecology affects us all and Lac Et Mel steps forward to make our world a better place by producing carbon-neutral pieces in cooperation with the WWF Germany.

As for other shows on the first day of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Suzanna Peric demonstrated a sixties-oriented collection with flowing maxi length dresses colourfully embellished by blooming floral patterns.

Designer Zerlina Von Dem Bussche from the sushi-influenced label Sisi Wasabi dished out box-shaped jackets in orange and black, with a spice of Chanel.

Susanne Wiebe's tattooed body stockings, top hats and fish nets evoked carnival feeling and Joop!Jeans blinded us with metallic jeans, plastic cuff details and gushes of blue and pink.

Coming up today: Penkov, Basso & Brooke, Smeilinener and Michalsky.
