My dear friend Nina currently lives and studies in one of the most amazing cities in the world – Berlin! Such an inspirational city deserves it’s very own fashion blog post. This isn’t Nina’s first guest post on Miss Dee STyle, back in August she covered some of London fashion events in blog post “London the Fashionable”.
This is her inspiring review of Berlin’s Fashion Gallery in Museum of Decorative Arts.
Enjoy 🙂 !
Berlin’s Fashion Gallery
Museum of Decorative Arts (Kunstgewerbemuseum) in Berlin, as well as being the oldest of its kind in Germany, is the home of the first permanent exhibition of fashion in the country’s capital. Beautifully displayed fashion pieces tell us the story of the last 150 years of fashion. There are around 130 mannequins showcasing exquisitely designed clothes, shoes and accessories. It’s a must-see collection.
Since the museum was recently reopened after extensive renovation, I decided to take a look inside its Fashion Gallery to see for myself how great the fashion story has been laid out. As soon as you step into the dark corridor you get a sense of calm. Right around the corner you are faced with the first glass box, and the oldest pieces in the collection. The light is low so you need to come really close to the glass if you wish to look for details on the garments. I love how the whole exhibition is completely black, only with lit up glass boxes showcasing the designs. It’s very minimalistic, but quite impactful.
Winter has finally arrived in my home town Split, and gave me the perfect reason to pull out of my wardrobe all the wonderful coats and boots which were waiting patiently for their time of the year. It is essential to have nice and quality black boots and black coat in your wardrobe. They are easy to combine for work or casual outings, and can be quickly changed with a simple touch of nice shawl or some statement jewelry.
If you are a regular on this blog it is not to hard for you to notice that I’m in love in everything bright and colorful – Winter time will not stop me in that affection, you can be sure in that 🙂 ! These leather and wool boots by Spanish brand The Art Company are everything I can ask in my Winter boots – warm, high-quality, comfortable, bright and unique – I feel so happy while wearing them 🙂
What are yours favorites winter favorites, do tell !
Until the next year, I wish you all happy New Year – 2014 was great, and I can’t wait to meet 2015!
You may think Paris is the fashion capital of the world, but London is immersed into fashion beyond fashion shows and couture clothing shops. It’s a city that lives effortless urban style, a city that serves as everlasting inspiration to designers and consumers, a city dedicated to exploration of fashion. It is no wonder that during my time of visit back at the end of May there were at least four fashion exhibitions taking place at the same time, not to mention several permanent exhibitions of fashion and costumes! From the famous wedding dresses and history of Italian fashion at the Victoria and Albert Museum, to Paul Smith at the Design Museum, and Prada at Harrods, there was something for everyone. It was impossible to visit them all, but I was on a quest to see as many as possible.
Two weeks ago me and my friend and photographer Stela have decided to pack our vintage dresses and visit one of the most beautiful little towns in Croatia – Rovinj. Rovinj is located on the western coast of Istria peninsula, which is the biggest Croatian peninsula. Rovinj is beautiful, but we needed a bigger motive for a 10 hour drive from our hometown Split then just usual sightseeing – and boy did we find it 🙂 !
Rovinj was a host of fantastic Dolce Vita Vintage Festival. In their own words : “Dolce Vita is a heritage festival celebrating vintage culture in all of its forms: music, film, design, fashion, dance, food…. Dolce Vita celebrates Mediterranean culture and all the best from the mid-20th century. A true festival experience for all senses!”
For us it really was an unforgettable weekend. Amazing concerts, great food, beautiful town…and the feeling that we entered into the time machine and returned to that beautiful era of dapper suits, gorgeous womanly dresses, wild dances and quality music….I think Fellini would be proud 🙂 !
