Buidings as Fashion Show Venues

Buidings as Fashion Show Venues

Menswear shows in Paris: Rick Owens and Kenzo chose a similar kind of venue: Trend Alert! Buildings as a fashion show backdrop (a summer trend; it needs to be outside).This post is obviously not going to be a Mimi Runway report: we can’t see the actual clothes. But, what a spectacle it’s like the circus…..

Rick Owens’s fashion show for Spring-Summer 2018 was held at the courtyard of Palais de Tokyo / The finale of the KENZO Spring-Summer 2018 Men and Women’s show at the Lycée Camille Sée in Paris. (images via kenzo.com / i-d.vice.com)

Circus Legends: Headless Girls

Circus Legends: Headless Girls

Mimi Berlin’s Circus legends came to life! Meet them in the photoseries by Wendelien Daan.

Dutch Photographer Wendelien Daan and Mimi Berlin collaborated on the photo series ‘Headless Girls’. They imagined two women who used to work being a circus act in the 20th century. These “Headless Girls” meet again, after decades, at a park.

Watch the Headless Girls move!

The women are wearing silk scarves designed by Mimi Berlin.
