PREPARE FOR BERLIN FASHION WEEK
WITH KERSTIN GEFFERT

The Silk Relations cofounder shares her top tips for events and city hotspots

PREPARE FOR BERLIN FASHION WEEK 
WITH KERSTIN GEFFERT

In 2005, Kerstin Geffert and her business partner Silke Bolms together founded Silk Relations , which is today one of Berlin’s most influential fashion and lifestyle PR agencies. Here, Kerstin shares her unique insights into the city she calls home, alongside some exclusive Fashion Week picks.

 

What brands or individuals are you keeping a close eye on this season?

Lou de Bètoly will debut her new collection, Hysteria, at the Vogue Salon. I’m very curious about this because behind this anagram is the French fashion designer Odèly Teboul, who has caused a sensation throughout the past twelve seasons as part of the designer duo Augustin Teboul.

 

Where's your fav place to start the day and where do you go for a relaxed dinner after?

My motto is #coffeefirst. I’m not approachable in the morning before a good flat white. So I'm sometimes found with my friends at The Barn, or recently at R/D Coffee on Chausseestraße. When it comes to dinner, I like it homemade; 10-course meals are not really my thing. For a special occasion, I’ll go to Cecconi's or have steak frites with salad at La Bonne Franquette.

Berlin Fashion Week is a huge event with a varied lineup. What's top of your list?

A typical day during Berlin Fashion Week is packed with appointments of various kinds: trade fairs, business lunches, fashion shows, presentations, conferences, publishing houses, parties ...so preparation is top of my list.I’m looking forward to the Zeitmagazin Conference, the Berliner SalonVladimir Karaleev’s show, the GQ 20 Years party, and the photo exhibition at the Odeeh store.

What new location are you most excited to check out?

APTM is a new, multifunctional space by international influencer Chris Glass. The project is a gallery, retail showcase and event venue all wrapped up into one. Chris has a unique eye not only for trends but also for design, and I'm really looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere.
