Museumsquartier Vienna Fashion Week

img_3213The Museumsquartier Vienna Fashion Week 2016 took place between the 12th and the 18th of September and this year I was lucky enough to attend the shows as press, thanks to my partner in crime – Borislava from Colour Club. As I have never before attended a fashion week, you can imagine my excitement only because of just being there and living this atmosphere from up close. And even though I didn’t have my camera with me and was equipped only with an iPhone, here are some pics from the looks and shows I found most inspiring.

On Saturday the day started with the Modeschule Herbststrasse fashion show – one of the best fashion schools in Vienna, where students from the school presented their collections. This was also one of the shows I liked most, maybe because of the diversity and boldness of the looks. Each one of them was super fun, young and playful, lots of pink, tulle, sheer and asymmetric pieces – one cannot go wrong with that! (OK, maybe one can, but they didn’t :D)


Big knits in cream were not missing from the picture, which are one of my favourite throw on pieces for fall. img_3236img_3271img_3240img_3246img_3247img_3251

Vis a Vis is a very young label by the Viennese designer Andrea Kerber, handmade with lots of love in the 15th Viennese district. Love the military vibe so definitely approved, and the fluffy sweater is <3 at first sight!img_3259img_3260img_3262img_3263img_3270

Lisi Lang is the designer of Lila, another Viennese brand. I have to say I really loved that show, loved the mood, and I mean, what about that sweaters and tulle skirts thing? It was really just like they stole it out of my wardrobe, I mean I love tulle skirts and sweaters! So when I saw that pink sweater and white tulle skirt combo, that’s when it was over for me and I was completely won over. img_3277img_3287img_3295img_3299img_3301img_3621img_3304img_3307

I was so pleasantly surprised by Guatemalan designer Juan Carlos Gordillo’s ‘Journey at the Americas’ collection, because honestly, I did not see that denim invasion coming (love denim!). Yes, denim is having a moment right now in the fashion world and I loved the details, flowers and ruffs so yes, he is totally rocking it.

The Russian designer Irina Vitjaz’s collection was almost fairytale like, silk, super feminine dresses combines with beautiful sheer sleeves and sometimes unexpected but super cool details as the cap below. img_3432img_3375img_3376img_3381img_3383img_3384img_3389

With this collection, for which Turkish designer based in New York Elanur Erdogan used only used fabrics from factories, fashion houses and universities, she aimed to raise the question for sustainability in fashion, for which I wholeheartedly applaud. And even though the mood of the whole show was really dark, the tulle, lace and embroidery details completely stole the spotlight!
