new york, milan, paris, berlin - and now zurich! the charles vögele fashion days are arriving and everybody is excited about it because everybody can be part of it! unlike fashion week in paris where only editors, buyers and celebrities are invited, everybody who is interested in fashion can attend the shows.
from november 3rd on, fashion will be the center of attention in zurich during four days. one of the most expected show is the show of the american designer alexander wang on thursday evening. he won the swiss textiles award last year. who will win the the award this year? jason wu, mary katrantzou or damir doma?
one of the intersting swiss newcomer is aluar balagan. the designers raul egloff alcaide and laura lazura are behind this label. laura lazura is known in zurich as the co-founder of the menswear and style gallery fashionslave. the fashion show is going to be on thursday morning with other new swiss designers.
penelope cruz and her sister monica will be here and bring some hollywood-glamour to the city! they both designed for the charles vögele brands biaggini violett, casa blanca and lingerie. the gorgeous sisters will present their designs at the opening night on wednesday. this will truly be one of the highlights of the fashion days!
i'm also really excited that the italian label missoni and kaviar gauche from berlin are going to present their designs in zurich. i'm a big fan of the missoni pattern and i love the family-tradition of the label.
as you can see the event is going to be BIG for a small city like zurich.. and who knows? maybe in a few years fashionistas from all over the world are coming to zurich for the fashion days.
