Up close & personal with Dorothee Schumacher
Geschreven door Tiany Kiriloff
After having skipped an entire season of fashion craze (I had only Baby O on my mind), I was once more immersed in the vigorous world of fashion by one of my all time favourite designers Dorothee Schumacher during her fall/winter 2016 catwalk collection in Berlin.
It’s all in the details…
Backstage insights are always great as you get to see things in detail, you get to touch textures and you catch a sniff of the designer’s atmosphere. A Schumacher show is pretty much laid-back as everything seems under control overlooked by the smiling presence of Dorothee herself. No screaming or yelling or raving mad personalities to be seen in this backstage, it’s pure conviviality and thus a real pleasure to be part of.
Tangerine & Ribbon Locks
To every show, there is a look defined by the designer and translated by hair & make-up artists. The make-up was all buffed up: clean and polished with fresh skin, pretty brows and a dash of mascara. However matte tangerine lips emphasized the model’s pretty pouts.
The hair was effortlessly chic and entwined to messy perfection with stripped ribbons. The result was magnificent; I’m however still clueless on how this is done.
Brushed mohair and lace, liberty flowers and jacquard, patchwork, embroideries, cut-outs and perforated fabrics all blended into and interesting collection that was an intriguing mix of traditional wear & skater gear details.
Enough favourites have emerged and will soon be added to my never-ending wish list.
