At yesterday’s final fitting, the five „Designer for Tomorrow“ finalists made sure everything is perfect for their big day this Wednesday, when they will present their collections to a curious Berlin Fashion Week crowd, the DfT jury and their patron Marc Jacobs.
For the final preparations, 40 international models flew in from catwalks all over the world to add the professional atmosphere that will help the newcomers to present their clothes at their very first major fashion show. The fitting came along with some new and last minute surprises. After weeks of planning, the final selections of the DfT finalists were revealed, and amidst this whirlwind, supporting fashion bloggers of Dandy Diary, Fashionfreax, I Heart Berlin, Reigen and Styleranking had come to stand by the side of each contestant, blogging live from the event. For the young talents this was the last chance to see if all their collection’s extravaganzas are suited for the catwalk.
As their mentor Marc Jacobs put it when he came down to Berlin to meet the finalists, „I’m much more interested in shows now that construct a bit of theater“; and no one needs to miss out on all those fashion show shenanigans that will take place at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin tomorrow: The award show will be streamed live on July 6th at 4:30 pm here on www.designer-for-tomorrow.com.
