Stil in Berlin: magazine
The doyenne of Berlin street photography is most probably Mary Scherpe, who has now, together with her partner Dario Natale, brought out a print version of her infamous blog Stil in Berlin
. Berliners will find the mag on display all over town, non-Berliners (wishing to warm up for Berlin Fashion Week with some street photos and advertorials sponsored by Lee and Filippa K) can write to
and order the magazine.
YOU create fashion
Interesting: Anna Rihl and Moritz Baier recently opened their fashion venture "Use a Brand" with a shop open in Vienna's Zollergasse (# 15, 1070). They basically invite everyone interested to submit fashion design sketches, which will then be evaluated and produced by a team of seamstresses. To be precise, only the best designs - as there is a constant competition going on. The first selection for men's and women's collection will be made on January 1st. Alright then: time to get creative over the Christmas holidays! More info here...
