THE OFFICIAL SIOK BERLIN FASHION WEEK AFTER PARTY

photophobia_7

 

Tomorrow I will go to my first fashion show of this year´s Berlin Fashion Week! And I am pretty excited about seeing the label SIOK who will show their latest SS14 collection “Photophobia”.

Photophobia is the fear of light. Socially, light is recognised as truth and peace. Day means life and night death. How dangerous is it to break out of those routines? The night from ancient times was the time of ghosts, devils and spirits. This world gives an opportunity for fantasy, freedom and expression. ”At night I’m free, I can find and loose myself in an instance. Nobody oppresses me or makes demands. That’s the time where all secrets transpire. The night, a storyteller who conceives tales out of my thoughts and allows me to listen in. When day arrives, longing embarks for the proceeding darkness…”

The German label was founded back in 1996 and was initially mainly into Fetish fashion, – more than a decade later this has changed, but even though so they still stand for creating a very individual look. “SIOK stands for a modern lifestyle, extravanganza, that doesn´t seem exerted. We are not interested in short-living fashion, that is being replaced by a new trend the next season. We stand for individuality instead of mainstream. It is about getting to the bottom of borders, to respect them or to cross them.” Since 2011 designer Carolin Rein has taken over the leadership of the company and has later on teamed up with Carmelo Messina.

But enough of the facts now, we also wanna invite you all to the THE OFFICIAL SIOK BERLIN FASHION WEEK AFTER PARTY on the 4th of July, that is being presented by by AURIS, NOISEKÖLLN & NOCTURNAL ACTIVITIES. Two floors, gallery spaces and an outdoor party area for a night of fashion, art and music revelry – featuring various DJ’s, musicians, photographers, painters, installations, and visual artist. The gallery exhibition opens at 18:00. And – try to be there early as the first 30 guests will receive LOMOGRAPHY goodie bags and vouchers. Maybe I should start queuing up already now? :) There will also be cameras all around the venue so everyone will be able to join the claptrap.
