ESTHER PERBANDT A/W 2017/18

Last night Esther Perbandt once again proved herself to be a designer, visonary, performer, master of ceremony and entertainer.

On January 17, 2017 at 8pm, Esther Perbandt presented her latest Autumn/Winter 2017/18 collection on the main stage at Volksbühne during Berlin Fashion Week. The designer chose to return to Volksbühne for a second time, magically attracted to the venue, which fits her like a second skin.
This season, an explosive mix of extraordinary characters from the art, music, theater and design scenes walked for Ester Perbandt, with none other than Germany's first supermodel, the artist Vera von Lehndorff (aka Veruschka), gracing the runway.

With a collection that is electrically avant-garde and anticyclical, the designer created radically visionary garments that play with the slightest of contrasts between black and white, age and gender. In essence, Esther Perbandt stands for effortless androgyny and independence, having made a name for herself internationally through her powerful stage productions.

On the stage of the memorable stage designer Bert Neumann, where the black and white films worlds of the twenties and thirties meet Buster Keaton, Dada, and George Grosz - Esther embeds her mix of present and future personalities - unconventional, confident, fragile, clear, energetic, somber and touchingly beautiful.

 
The music for "DREIZEHN" was performed live by composer and musician Sven Helbig, who is under contract at "Deutsche Gramophon" and has worked with artists such as Rammstein, Pet Shop Boys and Snoop Dog. Zoran Bihac, international film producer and director, provided the unique creative direction. His résumé includes set design for Rammstein, Beatsteaks, Die Fantastischen Vier and Lindemann.


The show itself attracted a lot of V.I.P. guests, amongst them were Richard Kruspe, Paul Landers, Christoph Schneider (all from Rammstein), choreographer Sasha Waltz, actresses Susan Hoecke, Saralisa Volm, Dennenesch Zoudé, singers Mieze Katz (Mia) & Friedrich Liechtenstein and actor Ben Becker.
