Good things take time they say. I have been impatient to present you the results of recent work with Uli Löser, Berlin based photographer, whom I met in January during the fashion week.
This time marked our second get – and work together. I have been to Berlin for a very short stay over – and here are another exciting news – I finally decided to move away from Vienna. So during these couple of days I have subsequently been looking at flats in this amazing city. The only thing I have been a little less fortunate with has been the weather, as heavy rain showers surprised us. But to say that we have worked around it would be understatement. May I humbly say – thanks to Uli – these images can perfectly stand alone and without any opulent and vibrant back drop…
In this set I am wearing a two piece by Maje and a lace top by The Kooples, two of my most coveted labels at the moment.
Last thing to mention would be, that in case of doubt you should definitely wear red. And without any doubts of course too – a true Flame will always find a reason to be wearing red! Like that I hope to have inspired you – and should you now be lusting after a little more of Uli’s work – you can find it on his web site and facebook page.

Flames, I am utterly delighted to present you with some wonderfully captured moments from recent Berlin Fashion Week Spring/Summer 15. I have to credit my dear friend Berlin based photographer Uli Löser for this master piece of fashion photography – he has been so kind to provide me with the scoop of three major collections, the ones of coveted Austrian fashion designer Lena Hoschek, alongside French- Austrian designer Marina Hoermanseder and Thoas Lindner, who is also a sculptor and a poet.
Berlin stands for young, contemporary, self-conscious, open minded and liberal. I have been completely taken by the pulsating city on my last visit and I am impatient to share more of it and from recent work with Uli with all of you. But for now let’s let the image speak – be amazed at some delightful musings from Berlin Fashion WeeK S/S 15:
I hope you enjoyed this fashion infused visual inspiration from Berlin, just as much as I did. Oh, that gold teeth necklace worn by the girl in the fourth picture….perfect place to wear your grills, I would say
You can view more of Uli’s art work on his web page: Punktzehn.de and on his facebook page.

What a beautiful summer so far, Flames! I have already encountered so many adventures, living summer life to the fullest and therefore may not always had the time to capture everything I have seen. Well sometimes we have to embrace the moment…But how lucky to have had my camera with me at my visit to the Afropfingsten music festival in Winterthur, Suisse – because there was a moment that just meant the world to me and that I will never forget.
I remember how I held my first tape of Patrice’s music in my hand. Perhaps the first tape of his music that ever existed as it was more of a demo really. I must have played it at least a million times and I guess it is alright to say that songs like ‘Queens‘ or ‘Love‘ and ‘Everyday good‘ have inspired me for my entire life – encouraged me to have faith in myself, be the person I strive to be, to listen to my heart and follow the things I love, to stay strong and never let anyone talk me out of my dreams…all so important values.
Hm, and this soulful and soothing voice – if you haven’t heard it yet I advice you should. I will never forget listening to this voice while overwieving the river nile from my grandmother’s balcony once on a visit to Egypt. How these beautiful melodies carrying so meaningful words were playing with the mild wind just to disperse into the dusk over a vibrant river – memories to treasure forever. This must have been about sixteen years ago, and I still get the same fascination today when listening to his music, if not even more. And I think in his new album ‘The rising of the son‘ this natural mystic certainly is maintained. Songs like ‘Cry, cry, cry‘, ‘Hippies with guns‘ and ‘Alive‘ may stick to our ears easily but my very personal favourites are ‘Making ways‘ and ‘Songs’ - because once again it is the message that is touching me personally and on a deeper level.
In summer I enjoy myself the most going to festivals and mingling with likely minded, as I am the most inspired when surrounded by music. A visit to a Patrice concert lets my heart jump for joy, that is for certain – as there are so many precious stories connected to his music. I call that magic – and I would really love to know who’s music let’s your heart skip a beat?

Wether it is on the festivals or during the World cup live streams – I hope that you are celebrating every moment this summer! And please don’t forget to follow my Instagram – it is an easier way for me to keep you posted with my adventures and travels – thank you!
Lots of sunshine,
