berlin fashion week (28 jan – 1 feb) is gonna rule.

facehunter will be there (a tip, if you are eager to get your picture taken, is to wear an eye-catching hat and/or talk loudly about stockholm), as will iekeline stange (projektgalerie is putting up an exhibit of her polaroid photography, entitled “i like ponies”, which should be nifty, and also she has such a wonderfully quirky style), and a lot of really fuckin cool berliners.

the city itself is wonderful — covered in graffiti, full of galleries and dark bars and artists’ squats and falafel places — and fashion weeks are always fun to loiter around.

who else is in berlin, you ask? an artist by the name of chiharu shiota, is who, and last we saw she was creating enormous installations of dark string, windows, baby shoes, and burned wedding dresses.
