50 years MARC O'POLO

I didn’t plan on leaving Paris for any reason during my one month stay in the city. But on the other hand, who can say no to a huge party that MARC O’POLO was throwing for its 50th years celebration in Munich. 50 years MARC O’POLO! What a great number to celebrate, right? (I wish my business will last that long as well ; ) )

The 50 years MARC O’POLO party was the official reason for my short trip to Germany. My love for the sophisticated simple design and chic style that distinguish Marcopolo’s garments was the reason that made me wake up at 06:30 on the 06th of July and fly from Paris to Munich.

Upon arrival in Munich, I was treated like a fashion blogger, although I am far away from fashion blogging. But I must admit… it was fun! The MARC O’POLO team organized an exclusive styling lounge with hair & make up artists, as well as stylists who helped me put an outfit together and got my hair and make up done. I chose to wear a green midi skirt with a black top and black high heels.

My make up artist was Tinka Luptakova. I asked for her name intentionally because she was so good with her work, and I would definitely recommend her to you in case you are looking for a make up artist in Munich.

The photos in this blog post were taken by my friend Katharina, who lives, studies, and works as a photographer in Munich. I was glad that she was able to come visit me at the hotel, took my camera, and shot a couple of pictures for The Viennese Girl blog while I was getting ready.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos from the party that followed after because I decided to leave my camera in the hotel room so that I can enjoy the party. You have to believe me, it was a blast! If you followed along on my Instagram Story, chances are you have seen the fashion show and saw Robbie Williams on stage! He was amazing! ♥

FENDI VIENNA – It was a hard working day but I enjoyed every single moment of it. We began at 09:00 shooting with Carola Pojer from ViennaWedekind. At 12:00 we started shooting Vicky from Bikinis&Passports and Kathi from Ketchembunnies. Our goal was to photograph the girls wearing pieces from the Resort 2017 Fendi collection with Vienna in the background. I had prepared ahead of time a list of the most photogenic places in the center of Vienna. It’s not everyday that you get to photograph beautiful girls wearing beautiful stylish outfits. I look forward to many more opportunities like this one.

I can’t tell you enough how much I loved the total FENDI look, and mostly the iconic red and white skirt, that I was wearing that day (why can’t I dress up like this everyday?).

By the way, have you guys seen their fashion show that took place at Fontana di Trevi in Rome? If not, watch it here. It is pure magic.

If you are looking for something special to wear (especially now during the Xmas season), I recommend that you pass by Kohlmarkt 5, in the heart of Vienna, to discover more of the FENDI world on your own. ♥

One thing is sure: I must be lucky. Attending the Chanel fashion show which took place at the Grand Palais on the 8th of March and sitting in front row only you must have a kind of good luck, I guess. Actually, I knew that the runway spectacle would be special, that’s why I booked a last minute flight ticket and landed in Paris a few days before the show. And it was the first time I attended a catwalk in Paris Fashion Week and hope that more occasions like that will bring me back to Paris, even if I have to look for a last minute flight ticket desperately.

I saw the runway through my Canon lenses where models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Soo Joo Park among 91 others walked in front of my lenses wearing pink tweed suits, bowler hats, leather boots, biker gloves and Chanel pearls. Besides, I stumbled upon Pharrell Williams, Willow Smith and Grace Coddington, and personally met a very special girl from Australia, Nicole Warne.

I especially loved taking photos of the venue before and after the show: white carpets, beige walls, golden chairs, mirrors everywhere, a very impressive glass ceiling above us and the perfect light for photography. And what about the make up? I was impressed to find out that the quilted eye makeup was inspired by the iconic leather bag. That was really impressive and need to find a way to do that on my eyes too.

The CHANEL fashion show would be described in one word as mesmerizing and here, on The Viennese Girl blog, we only live for mesmerizing moments.♥

I have always been an admirer of Chanel masterpieces and an invitation to explore the new Chanel boutique in Vienna together with some other editors and journalists one day before the official opening was beyond my imaginations.

On the 8th July, the meeting started with breakfast at Julius Meinl am Graben. Later on, the Chanel staff welcomed us in the boutique with champagne and macaroon and showed us around the entire store. I was totally in my element. Clothing, jewellery, a double C monogram everywhere, the newest creations of Karl Lagerfeld and an interior design inspired by the apartment of Chanel in Paris, on Rue Cambon 31.

Instead of making myself comfortable on the tweed-sofa, flipping through Gabrielle’s Chanel book, eating macarons and sipping champagne, I grabbed my photo camera, started taking pictures and thoroughly immersed myself into the elegant universe of Mademoiselle Chanel. I loved each and every moment spent inside there, although I felt a bit overwhelmed at the beginning, because I didn’t know exactly from where to start taking photos and needed a few minutes to get familiar with the new environment.

I am glad that I am able to give you a sneak peek into the Chanel boutique through my photos on The Viennese girl blog but I also highly recommend you to visit the new Chanel boutique (and the old one) by yourself, if you are in Vienna or you plan to visit Vienna, so that you can discover what I had the chance to discover. And if you are really into the history of fashion, I suggest you to watch some videos that tell the story of a legend, which I personally found very interesting.

I left the Chanel boutique with a small yet fine press gift, feeling inspired and reflecting on three things: first, on my personal style. Second, on the ballerinas shoes that I have been coveting for so long and finally must treat myself as the next Christmas gift, and last but not least, I was thinking one more time that the world is full of endless of possibilities and beautiful things that I just cannot stop discovering.♥

The story behind the Ted Baker wallet goes like this: I was waiting for my gate to be announced at Heathrow airport and as many of you would do, I also had a look around the shops, without any intention to buy anything. Ted Baker shop caught my attention because there is no Ted Baker boutique in Vienna so I decided to kill some time inside there. I found this Ted Baker wallet in many pastel colours but the baby pink colour was my favourite and even though I had no intention to buy anything, some things are just so irresistible. This product was like screaming to me: I was made for you, get me now! Since I am one of those who always says and believes that life is short and that we have to enjoy things and celebrate every moment, I bought the baby pink wallet. If I hadn’t bought it, I know, I would now think of it, regretting that I hadn’t bought it.

I usually don’t blog about things but I like talking about and showing my favourite things, if not on the blog then to my friends, and I love product photography which is something that I discovered to be keen on, when I received my Daniel Wellington watch. It has been, since then, a great challenge that I enjoy to undertake, how to present a product and how to make pictures of it.♥
