Kilian Kerner Backstage Berlin fashion Week lisforlois
While everyone was waiting outside enjoying their welcome drinks whilst chitchatting, schmoozing and anticipating the show, Phillip and I got to sneak in backstage, but not just for hair and make up, we were kind of granted all access (thx Jona!!).
Phillip chose to stay backstage, watch and experience the show from behind the curtain as I sat inside the show eyeing each and every look. This post is different from my fashion week reports as Phillip shares an intimate angle on the Kilian Kerner show. I'll leave you with Phillips pictures only as I don't want to destroy the atmosphere of this post with typical runway pictures.
Phillip has been such a blessing this season, helping me with pictures and creating good content.
I'm loving these images very much. But see for yourself..

Huge thanks to Nicole Weber communications for allowing us backstage!

Xavi Reye Elle Berlin fashion Week lisforlois
Hey Guys,

What's up? I'm back with some more pictures right off the runway. The ELLE magazine x Mercedes Benz show is one of the more special shows on the schedule each season, always highlighting the works of a young talent. This year's talent: Xavi Reyes.
Xavi Reyes is a designer from Spain who founded his label with the same name only in 2013. His designs are largely gender-free (note the blush and make up on both male and female models during this show) playing with new silhouettes inspired by "youth, future and melancholy".

Fun fact: the guy in the first picture is a friend of mine, Simon Dube Paul, and I accompanied him and Phillip to the casting just a few days prior to the show. Trust me castings are not as easy and fun as they may seem on Germany's next Topmodel (You might have followed my day on Snapchat! LoisOpoku). We left the casting go watch Dube's little brother's basketball game and came back as the designer + team were packing up. The boys hushed in for a quick minute. Good thing Dube tried his luck.
He booked the show!
Enjoy the pictures of the runway. As usual shot by my boy Phillip and edited by me.

Maybelline MakeUp Show fashion Week lisforlois Maybelline MakeUp Show fashion Week lisforlois
Fashion Week kicked off with a very special kind of show this season for me. It was the Maybelline New York Make Up show that was also the opening show of the season, which I had been looking forward to for months as the special guest was none other than the stunning Gigi Hadid herself. I had received the invitation months before and it was the only show I was planning on attending, but as you know that turned out to be a hoax. Attended more than a handful of shows.. lol.
Anyway the show was special because it focused on the make up rather than the fashion. The looks were extravagant and crazy and each look represented a theme for each month of the year. Be sure to check out my pictures - you'll immediately get what I mean.
I think this was one of the most fun and memoriable nights this season. Especially when Gigi walked passed me out of the blue and I realized she is a true stunner. Couldn't even snap a selfie because I was in awe! Also because I spent that evening with my girl squad, we had lots of fun at the afterparty, eating cupcakes, drinking cocktails (..the usual) and got to meet a bunch of Germany's most famous Youtubers. Guess what they are cool as fuck. Down to earth as fuck. Fun as fuck.
Thanks for having us Maybelline!! Oh and thank you for the foundation I got to try before sales, but it wasn't quite my color! If you follow me on Snapchat (loisopoku) you know what I mean! hahahah

 Lois Opoku bomber jacket Streetstyle fashion week lisforlois
For my third look for Fashion Week I decided to go a little more.. well a bit on the boys side. I've been inspired a lot lately by one of my fav instagirls Aleali May. She's been wearing a lot of oversize bomber jackets in very androgynous cuts, mainly by my Adidas fam or Y3, which is a high end label from Adidas by Yohji Yamamoto. Her style itself is quite androgynous and she's rocking it.
I played with the masculine silhouette of this huge bomber coat I stumbled across on ASOS, mixing it with a sexy mini skirt to show off my legs, but kept the rest of my skin tucked away in a turtleneck. The details: tassels to keep it all a little fun.
Was I cold, you wonder. No, I was driven everywhere that day. Haha! Perks of staying with the girls of Blogger Apartment! (I did however make the biggest mistake of my life. Thinking that I'll be driven everywhere, I wouldn't need a pair of changing shoes i.e. flat shoes. No. Don't ever leave the house without a pair of flat shoes. EVER. Unless you are Mehtap. Then you are another type of Queen. You probably heard me whine like a pussy on Snapchat every second snap - add me LoisOpoku)
The top bun is very "every dumb bitch on social media ever"; Granted.
But.. sorry not sorry.
What do you think of this look?

berlin fashion week blogger apartment lisforlois
What happens when you throw 7 girls and a dude into one apartment for a couple of days for Fashion Week? Blogger Apartment, that's what happens.
Meet the crew: Breeny from Breeny LeeSamah, (moi), Yanin from Idressmyselff, Lori from Fabeau Trends, my bae Joéva from La Fashion War, Juliette from Romeo's Fashion Fix and missing in this picture - the most patient and stylish guy I've meet in a while Wilson from Black Whimsy.

During Fashion Week I moved into an apartment with a few international bloggers and vloggers, mainly from the UK and we spent most of the time together. From our apartment party and open house where we welcomed everyone into our own four walls with an dress up party with Even&Odd and Henna and Make Up Session and goodies for everyone to our shooting I think we can say we had a lot of fun and a few little adventures. I'm really happy I got to be part of this project but let my pictures speak for themself!
Scroll down for more impressions from my time with Blogger Apartment and discover the shooting with Even&Odd.

Lois Opoku fashion Week Streetstyle Grey Coat Leather culottes lisforlois
This is by far my favorite look of this season's Fashion Week. I wore it on the last day, so yeah technically this is day 4, but my following fashion week posts are in no particular order which is why I'm just going to be labeling as they come to keep things in order here on the blog.

As I said this was my favorite look, mainly because I got to wear this stunning jacket by designer VANESSAMORIN. I stumbled across her label through my homie Jean-Claude's Instagram and immediately fell in love with some of her key pieces. We got in contact and she allowed me to style this piece to fashion week. It was perfect for layering while still being the center of attention of the entire look. VANESSAMORIN is a Munich based Designer and manufactures her pieces in Europe. She even worked for Parisian fashion house Damir Doma after design school, but her label itself is what I would call clean and contemporary, casual yet luxurious.  "A woman wearing VANESSAMORIN appreciates and never loses the lightness of being."
Go check out her amazing label. I'm keeping an eye out for her as I can't wait to see how her label will evolve over the next years.


Guess I'm back at it! My return to Youtube is officially complete.
I shot a short video of my one of my looks for Berlin Fashion Week and completely edited it myself.
I'm still waiting for Nisi's verdict and approval. Other than that I'm super happy with the outcome! I hope you like it too.
Head over to my youtube channel, subscribe and give it a thumbs up! (lol, but do, ok thank you bye!)
Oh and don't forget to watch it :)

Full oufit post: here!

*claps own shoulder*

Love Lois xxx

Dawid Tomaszweski Backstage Show Berlin fashion Week lisforlois
What I realized this season is that Berlin is not dead - Berlin's fashion is not. Berlin is Berlin. And that's okay. There is absolutely no point in constantly comparing it to Paris, New York, London, Milan and co. because last time I checked nobody compared apples to bananas.
And that's fine.
What I discovered for myself this season is that the real treasures, Berlin's new talents and great designer are hidden in the Berliner Modesalon, an initiative by the German Vogue. Exclusive to invited guest in attempts to separate the cynical fashion clowns desparate to do nothing but stage themselves from the true German fashion scene - the IN crowd (editors, insiders, buyers, elite bloggers..), who have not forgotten that fashion week is and should be primarily about the designers and the fashion itself in it's truest form. Among the designers privileged enough to be invited by Vogue to present their upcoming collections and months of hard work and art, was Dawid Tomaszweski, a favourite of mine since my very first fashion week. I too was privileged, privileged to be granted access to this show and for that I want thank Wella. Thank you for allowing to roam around freely very last minute and gather my own impressions and especially for the backstage experience.
