No Space for Creativity in Styling?

No Space for Creativity in Styling?

During Berlin Fashion Week, a journalist named Phillipe made this comment:

Styling is a little bit overrated. It's the editors who style shows, and style shoots, everything. It used to be a great job at the time of Grace Coddington or the great stylists. I think these days, it become a little bit too easy. With the pressure of advertisers, anybody can be a stylist in the sense that you need that whole total look, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, whatever, so there's so much pressure now... there's no space for creativity for that job anymore.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to embed it on my site because Welt doesn't allow embedding. Like New York Times. Boo.

Fascinating comment. A bit sweeping, yes, though I won't deny that there are some, I repeat, some, truths to that.

German Fashion Bloggers at Premium Exhibitions Berlin 2010

German Fashion Bloggers at Premium Exhibitions Berlin 2010

My very handsome friend Fabian, who is the Features Director of TUSH Magazine, invited me to tag along with him to the German fashion bloggers meet-up at PREMIUM Berlin. Here's a quick video of him at the event.

Mary Scherpe of StilinBerlin and Julia Knolle from LesMads hosted the meet-up. It was lovely to see them again, as well as Katja of GlamCanyon, Gunnar of Style/Clicker. I've met them all in Munich last year.

Boss Black/Hugo Boss Spring Summer 2011 Finale

Boss Black/Hugo Boss Spring Summer 2011

View from my seat at the BOSS Black/Hugo Boss spring/summer 2011 fashion show here in Berlin.

Some of the models I've spotted at the show: Rose Cordero, Jourdann Dunn, Jessica Stam and Iris Strubegger.

Also, the super cute German Actor, David Kross was one of my seatmates. See the video above. He sat beside me on my right. It's funny because I didn't recognize who he was until after the show when a frind told me he was one of the actors on that beautiful film The Reader, starring Kate Winslet. I saw that movie on the plane from Manila to Amsterdam not too long ago.

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

At the Boss Black/Hugo Boss show, I had the pleasure of meeting Klaus Wowereit who is the Mayor of Berlin. He's one of the openly-gay, major European city Mayors -- Bertrand Delanoe of Paris and Ole von Beust of Hamburg. 

Klaus Wowereit, Mayor of Berlin

According to Wikipedia, he coined the famous German phrase 'Ich bin schwul, und dasist aucht gut so' which means "I am gay, and that's all right, too."

I think it's fantastic that one could be a politician regardless of their sexual orientation... I don't think it's gonna happen in backwater Philippines where the government is still, whether you like it or not, very homophobic.
