Victorine Müller Performance Artist
Frau Müller, from Switzerland, performs in her own sculptures which are made of transparent PVC. Below you can see Victorine sitting in an elephant and standing in a foot with ankle. We, at Mimi Berlin, have never see her perform but these images are breathtajking…..

We are not sure if we will ever see one of Victorine M¨¨llers performances, we could’t find much new information on her on the interweb…… (images via beautifuldecay.com / designboom.com)
Spring 2015 Prêt-à-Porter: Sheer Madness
At the Summer shows for 2015 there was a lot of body to be seen through the sheer layers of fabric. Nothing new we hear you say; No, agreed, the use of transparent fabrics aren’t new, but the shape they come in this season are; they are extravagant in a romantic way. (Mind you, these are no brides you see below!) The designers did go wild with their imagination and used tons of fabric to create over-the-top, floor-lenght dresses for us to strut on the streets next Summer.

Covered from top to toe in Lace. Lace is still going strong on the runways, has been since Winter 2011. Romantic at Zimmerman. Jumpsuits at Ungaro. Unfinished lace punk at Yamamoto. We also noticed models to be covered in Broderie Anglaise, which is less transparent but from the same romantic family as lace: >see that HERE on this blog
