Every year there are certain events I genuinely look forward to. Second Hand, Second Life is one of those things. Raising awareness and money to help those less advantaged and sometimes homeless people by creating awesome pieces of fashion, that’s what I like about this industry! Every year the mix of designers slightly changes but the venue stays the same: the gorgeous spaces in Tour & Taxis. The catwalk however tends to change as well. That’s why this year, I decided to show you the backstage pics only because my photos aren’t what I’d hoped for because of the high stage. Kim did manage to snap a few good ones, so go over to Brunette Blogging for catwalk pictures.
My personal favourites were by far Monsieur Bul and Brunel Mintona (last two pics). The combination of redheads in jeans is just beyond. The collection was very casual but still classy. Not your regular baggy jeans situation but more sophisticated dresses in jeans fabric. Also jackets wrapped around the waist: very on trend! Then there’s Brunel Mintona with his gorgeous women’s collection in what seemed more expensive fabric, even though every designer had to work with garments out of the Petit Riens boxes.
A great show for a great cause. Keep up the good work guys!
