Preparing for Berlin Fashion Week isn’t as easy as one might think. The schedule craziness starts about two weeks before Fashion Week when the PR agencies are sending out invitations and reminders. During this time, I get about four times as many e-mails as usual and let me tell you, it is not easy to stay organized and on top of everything. There are so many events all squeezed into four days, it’s mayhem. So far, my schedule includes 12 fashion shows, 2 showrooms, 1 blogger event, and some after show parties.
So, because those four days will be quite hectic, it is important to have some essentials in your handbag. You can see mine above, I got this pretty suede bag at Mango and it has the perfect size for fashion week! Inside, you will find (from left to right):
A Moschino notebook that I bought during Vogue’s FNO last year, in there I will write down notes about every fashion show, which I will turn into proper articles later on.
The Fashion Rescue Kit, that I got at my very first Fashion Week 4 years ago (geez, I’m old!!!), packed with sewing stuff, hair bands, band aids etc.
Paul Frank Lipsmacker and MAC Lipgloss.
VERY IMPORTANT! My Press ID, without which I would not get inside the tent.
Benefit Concealer and NYX Cream Blusher, two essentials that make me look fresher and more awake than I will actually be.
My wallet, my camera, gum, oh and, what you can see at the bottom is a paper fan that always comes in handy when it gets hot in the tent.
What’s missing in this picture, of course, because I took this picture with it, is my iphone in which I saved my schedule and invitations. VERY important!
So, as you can see, I’ll be carrying around quite some stuff plus goodie bags and giveaways from the designers, but I’m more than happy to carry those ;) Four days to go! I’ll keep you posted.
