VOGUE Fashion's Night Out with Joachim Baldauf at Bikini Berlin
On 8th September the eighth Vogue Fashion’s Night Out took place in the German capital and of course Bikini Berlin participated, opening its stores until midnight.[BREAK]For the event, Bikini Berlin was transformed into a glamorous Night Circus from 7:00 pm and offered its visitors a one-off shopping experience. Not only did the stores stay open until midnight, but lots of great offers and promotions also kept the crowds of shoppers happy. There was plenty to discover in the stores and the concept mall itself, but a real highlight was the photo shoot with star photographer Joachim Baldauf.
Joachim Baldauf is one of the most important advertising and fashion photographers of our time and has shot for globally renowned magazines including VOGUE. And he was also at VFNO at Bikini Berlin. Together with VOGUE stylist Claudia Hofmann he took photos of bloggers and VIPs under the motto “Night Circus”.
I was also lucky enough to be involved in the shoot, which was a real honour for me. As a blogger, I find myself standing in front of my wardrobe every day, wondering what I should wear and which outfits I should photograph and feature on my blog. So it felt great to not have to worry about my choice of outfit for once and to leave it all up to the stylist. Although the motto and the choice of outfit were very unusual, I really liked how I looked in the end.
And then the only challenge was taking part in the shoot. I have to admit that I was quite nervous and didn’t really know what to do with myself. But Joachim Baldauf was a huge help and gave me confidence, meaning that the shot was soon in the can. And the final photo really surprised me as it surpassed all my expectations. I’m really happy with it. VFNO 2016 at Bikini Berlin was such a unique experience and I got to take a fantastic souvenir of the event home with me.
