Mimi Berlin’s Fashion Fest: The Party Celebration 2017

We, at Mimi Berlin visit parties all the time. This time we wanted to give back, so we threw a party for yous all! Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest: The Party Celebration at Sexyland in Amsterdam. Celebrating the 5 year anniversary of Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest: an ongoing project for which we create self-group portraits a couple of times per year. We had Music, we had Drinks, Snacks, Sauerkraüt, also we had; Partyhats, Goodie Bags, Photographers ànd we planned 2 Group-Photo moments: before and after the party. We, at Mimi Berlin, had SO much fun! Thanks to all our friends and family, DJ Frankie D and everyone at Sexyland We Love You!

Exhibition

For the occasion we premiered 2 life-size prints: Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest #7; Bed Peace Choose Life (@Tetterode, January 2017) and Mimi Berlin’s Fashion-Fest #6; Dutch Cheerleading Squad (Cheering for Ourselves, November 2016). We also showed the ‘behind-the-scenes’ images which we made all these years at our MB Fashion-Fest days and had never shown before en plein public.

Of course we took party-snaps at our own party: ‘Cause we know you like that! ‘This is How We Do It’

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

Gustav Brostrom’s Beauty Multi Masks on Instagram

The instagram feed of Gustav Brostrom from Stockholm, Sweden, is filled with selfies made of his face covered in different beauty masks at the same time. Gustav mixes facial masks, patches, foams and what have you not, to create lovely images of himself. (yes we know they are called selfies)

Multimasking was the newest rage in 2015, a beauty trend we, at Mimi Berlin, completely missed out on. Basically it’s targeted skincare. By putting on multiple facial masks, or layer them simultaneously on the skin, you can treat different skin concerns at one time. Gustav Brostrom takes multimasking to the next level. Fun!

History: Self Portrait in the Mirror

History: Self Portrait in the MirrorHistory: Self Portrait in the Mirror

We saw this story on Petapixel.com and wanted to share it with y’all this fine morning.

“Staring into a mirror and taking a self-portrait with a camera is nothing new. People have been trying to find ways to take their photographs since the 19th century. As humans, we take an interest in ourselves – a curiosity with a dash of self-obsession. A photograph can acknowledge our existence and allow us to view ourselves from the standpoint of others around us. Here are a collection of mirror self-portraits from years passed.” (read the full story at http://petapixel.com/2015/06/02/mirror-self-portraits-from-the-early-days-of-photography/)
