Berlin based designer Michael Michalsky has not only been show opener at the annual MQ Vienna Fashion Week, but he has also been a true show stopper. The coveted designer has been known for giving brands like Adidas, MCM and Stella McCartney a fresh twist and closely working with international stars like Missy Elliot. This time he has set the crowd of Viennese fashion lovers on fire with his hyper modern and sportive designs for men and women, featuring boxy cut blazers, metalics and as you can tell plenty of dots and stripes in the men’s section. We love seeing designers having fun with their own collection and philosophy, so I was utterly pleased to see the designer strutting his stuff and doing a little turn on the cat walk at the very end of the show – sporting that kind of confidence I would love to see from my Flames usually. I guess it is time to let the images do the talk – so sit back and relax – let me inspire you with the latest impressions from the ever elevating Viennese fashion scene:
Yes, Flames , it is true that I am out and about again, trying my best to keep you up with exciting stories out of my life and fashion news that really matter. In fact – and this has been a well kept secret so far – I am working to give the Flamboyante a complete new look and feel – an experience that you should benefit more from in the future. I am developing new features, which should hopefully make it easier for you to join the conversation and get interactive. My readers mean the world to me, so expect to hear from me more regularily again in the future. I will definitely keep you up to date with thrilling news about my new blog launch soon – in the mean time please don’t forget to follow my Instagram, to make sure you aren’t missing out on any of that.
I cannot wait to get a little flamboyant with all of you again, Flames, so keep your heels and lip sticks ready!

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.
