Berlin Fashion Film Festival celebrated its second edition with a three day program with several screenings, award show, party and fashion show. Now looking back to Berlin Fashion Week I can say that the festival is true enrichment to the Berlin Fashion Week. Although an offsite event during Berlin Fashion Week this event really stands on its own as a strong and a promising festival with aim to stage fashion film and aspiring film makers. I was proud that our FASHIONCLASh film 'Aspire' was featured in the Young Guns section among a great selection of short fashion films.
Beside the film screening and the awards show, visitors were treated with a spectacular fashion presentation by Charlie Le Mindu and the after party with DJ HELL.
