Annelie Schubert invited to present her collection in Berlin By Mercedes-Benz and ELLE
This season, Mercedes-Benz and Elle have invited Berlin-based fashion designer, Annelie Schubert, to present her collection during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin in the event marquee on Strasse des 17. Juni. The 28-year-old won the Grand prix of the jury Première Vision at the 30th edition of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères back in April. The show in Berlin is yet another opportunity for the young designer to forge a career in the fashion world and her collection represents a great addition to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. The show will take place on 9 July 2015 at 11.30 a.m.
eavy woollen fabrics combined with delicate silk organza, skilfully entwined with elaborate draping, and the fascinating interplay between various lengths are characteristic features of the collection from Annelie Schubert. “The inspiration for my collection came from the silhouette of the apron,” says the designer. “It is an interesting garment, both in terms of its shape and its history. I was intrigued by the thought of transforming its quite functional character into something more opulent and elegant. Its long front section and open back also enable me to create links with other garments such as the T-shirt or sweater.”
Annelie Schubert’s educational background includes a Bachelor’s degree in fashion design at Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, an internship at Haider Ackermann in Antwerp and, finally, a Master’s degree at the Weißensee College of Art in Berlin. The concepts for her collection were the result of extensive research into materials and colour, and draping various shapes to create interesting silhouettes and contours. Crafted out of bulky, yet soft woollen fabrics and transparent silk organza, they reflect a subtle sensuality in which it is the designer’s aspiration for women to feel both comfortable and revered.
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 will be held in Berlin from 7 to 10 July 2015.
