Vienna Fashion Night

Vienna Fashion Night is set for a grand comeback! The second edition of the stylish event has over 100 shops and department stores taking part in creating the best shopping atmosphere full of tempting discounts, limited edition pieces, fine champagne, good music, and more. There are enough treats to go around all evening, only interrupted by a stunning fashion show (10pm) where you can see the freshest collections from designers such as VERSUS Versace or Lena Hoschek, followed by the Vivie Awards, given out in three categories. Vienna Fashion Night is as charitable as it is stylish though, this time raising awareness about heart disease affecting women. Lena Hoschek has created a special heart bracelet for the night, and you can of course get the Vienna Fashion Night bag to help raise money. That’s what we call shopping with a cause!

Expect conceptual artists such as Robert Jelinek, who shows his own take on synchronised swimming made into an utterly contemporary artistic performance.

The Textile Pattern Collection of Emilie Flöge
Image2012|05|25 - 2012|12|02

It’s said that behind every great man stands an even greater woman. True enough, even Gustav Klimt had a lifelong muse to inspire his wonderful creations, and she was noone else but his wife, the fashion designer Emilie Flöge. A folk-art enthusiast, she collected bits and pieces such as delicate laces or bright embroidery from different countries and regions, and used them in her fashion designs. The Austrian Museum of of Folk Life and Folk Art, in the framework of Klimt’s Year 2012, has organised an exhibit with over 350 of Flöge’s collected pieces, examining their effect on art nouveau, as well as on Klimt himself. Look out for side events such as talks by the curator about the collection or historian’s peek into the female lifestyle at the end of the century.
