So it was wednesday afternoon when my friend Jacky from Berlin (she manages "The Edged Showroom" there) contacted me concerning Outfits for a french actress.
Lucie Aron - a beautiful french actress from paris was invited to attend the Berlinale. On the RED CARPET for the first time.
So because Mark&Julia are friends with the team from Edged and because Jacky knows that we know how to work professional ;) i got in the last train to Berlin packed with a huge black suitcase full of gowns to wear for various Press events but also Red-Carpet Looks.
I arrived at Berling Hauptbahnhof at 9:30 - the train ride wasn't that bad actually :)
from the trainstation we drove straight to Lucies Appartment for a first fitting.
Poor lucie was all excited and nervous (totally understandable). But its always like that with people who know they have to stand in front of the international Press.
Good thing Mr. Marky here knows exactly how to calm you down ;)
- show them fashion and they will hush.
So we chose some great looks for her appearances and when i saw Lucie get out of the car at the red Carpet i had to cry a bit because i was so proud of our work.

Maria finds herself caught between two worlds. At school this 14-year-old girl has all the typical teenage interests, but when she’s at home with her family she follows the teachings of the Society of St.
Pius XII and their traditionalist interpretation of Catholicism.
Everything that Maria thinks and does must be examined before God. And since the Lord is a strict shepherd, she lives in constant fear of committing some misconduct. Whilst Maria’s mother takes a tough line in compelling her daughter to stay on the path of righteousness, her father is often reticent and stands back during critical moments. Conflicts intensify as arguments erupt with teachers and doctors.
Desperate to please everyone, Maria soon finds herself trapped in the crossfire. How can she reconcile her feelings for a fellow pupil with her vow to maintain purity of heart in her love for God? Will the Lord demand a tremendous sacrifice so that her brother can be healed from his sickness?
"A inspirational performance discovering the connection of Body and Spirit by getting directions"
press play while reading:
After their physically intense flirt with the canon of body and performance art of the 1970s in Kein Applaus für Scheiße, and their passionate ode to spirituality inSpirit, the meanwhile internationally well-known duo concludes its first trilogy with the project Wellness.
Starting points are the need for healing and the realisation of one’s own ultimate aims for well-being.
Holzinger and Riebeek try to balance a healthy mind with a physical aesthetic inspired by beauty contests and competitions. To this aim they subject wellness treatments and measures to increase well-being, such as military-inspired CrossFit sessions, profound psychotherapy and session of meditating to a performed survey.
For the first time in their collaborative work they are opening their intimate group of two to fellow comrades-in-arms. Together they will all be exploring which pop cultural elements display both enough ambition as well as influence to advance nothing less than the healing of the world.
Wellness is committed with body and soul to the search for
effective methods that dissolve personal fears into pleasure.
What marky thought about the Performance (of course without even knowing what awaits him):
when i entered the room at the BRUT in Vienna the Song playing (by Lana Del Rey - see above) immediately caught my ear. And the very sexy Dancer (i believe his name was Christian) caught my eye.
I had to snap out of staring and moving like a table dancer to the music. because EY! its Art and you have to look at it critical (#yeeahhliketotes!).
So for me the performance was exactly what i needed to see. The Message (in my opinion) was clear and very helpful. I've never really saw a performance of Florentina Holzinger before but i heard of her. I think specially she did a great job and was very strong in her character. My main focus was on her i think.
It was hard to focus on one person there was so much happening - in a good way.
But please! tell me this! Cause in i get all oiled up and have to rub my genitals against 3 (!!) other people i would not be able to help it but to get hard ?!? So kudos for staying professional guys ;)
see ya next time!
PS: for all of you who want to see the performance

I love all these crazy dress-up parties! (duh??!) i think if you don't look fabulous your evening is only half as funny as it could be.
So for all of you who like dressing up but in a very classic-beautiful way i would recomment to drop by at CHAYA FUERA this saturday to have a blast at the ORIGINAL VIENNAs first - 50s/60s party SWELL TIME A MAD MAN NIGHT OUT.
