There wasn’t much time for DfT winner Alexandra Kiesel to shake off her jetlag: After a whirlwind week in New York City, the young designer had to catch her plane to attend the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Roadshow Berlin in Düsseldorf. Along with the design newcomer, more than 1.000 guests followed the invitation of Peek & Cloppenburg directors Clint Böttcher and Dirk Moerchen at the Peek & Cloppenburg Weltstadthaus. While Alexandra has left New York with a late summer tan, back in Europe it’s definitely time to look out for outfits that will keep you warm in the upcoming season! Watching the catwalk show of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Roadshow Berlin in Düsseldorf there seems to be no way to get around autumn knitwear, paired with a lot of earth tones and garish colors. Next to big labels like Marc Cain, Gant, Comma, Seeberger, Roeckl and Paul Rosen, this was the chance for Alexandra to once again present her collection „Baukasten Individualisten 12/6/24“ to a large audience. Three months ago, the geometric shapes and contrast-colors won her the Designer for Tomorrow Award at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, convincing the jury consisting of several fashion-forward experts. Once more her unique designs clearly stood out and greatly impressed the Düsseldorf viewers. And this is by far not the end of exciting events coming up for the young fashion designer. It seems like no matter on what side of the ocean, Alexandra is leaving behind fashion-footprints and is soaking up every experience she can get to grow as a designer.
