Frida Weyer – An Homage to Femininity, SS2010, Berlin

Frida Weyer presented her first solo collection in the historic Chamäleon Varieté Theatre, at the Hackesche Höfe, during the second day of Berlin Fashion Week. The former ballroom from the golden age of art nouveau, with its striking 1920’s charm, was a perfect stage for the dramatic new collection. The show was a history lesson packed into sweet girlish dresses, with its strong references to the diva looks of the 1920’s and 50’s. Weyer has immediately found her niche, with this high-end line of extravagant gowns.

The last one-third of the collection bore a stronger more clear elegance.

The show was highlighted by a stunning white cocktail party-style wedding dress as the finale. This marvelous wide open piece, a shrunken version of a wide crinoline dress, best exemplified the volitionally diva leanings of the collection.

Besides the Berlin Fashion Week theatrical presentation of her namesake high-end line, this remarkable young woman also established the low-key sustainable streetwaer label MarchMellow. Frida Weyer is going places.
