Fashion? Me? I wear sneakers, hoodies and skinny jeans, I’m not exactly your poster-girl for style and fashion (though, scratch that, I’ve got mighty style, people just don’t pay enough attention to understatement). No, I’m certainly not part of the Mitte circle that runs from show to show to witness the newest pieces from the hippest designers. But during Fashion Week, all those exhibitions come to the city, all those beautiful people, people who are in such a vast and interesting and fascinating business, they come and bring their ideas and their influences (which I think is a great thing to happen). One of the core places where all of this happens is the Bread and Butter fashion fair, still going strong from here to there and finally lasting on majestic Berlin Tempelhof.
What can I say? It’s a playground for fashion more than anything else, fully equipped with a Mad Max scenery, with an incredibly chosen location (eh, hello, we’re in a former airport, right?), a heated atmosphere and fantastic gimmicks. Again, I know nothing about fashion: but I know something about Berlin. The BBB somewhat represents how those crazy creative Berliners think up an event like this. Leaving the content aside for a second I can truly say that I love the package. As for fashion? Still no. But I appreciate the parties and the free drinks anyway. Here are some of my impressions of the Tempelhof grounds during BBB taken with my HTC Desire.
