Kilian Kerner - Cologne, Berlin, London

Although Kilian Kerner did show a presentation of his main line in the glorious confines of the Palm Court Waldorf Hilton over London Fashion Week in September, his home base  platform for runway is Berlin Fashion Week and he plans to keep showing there, which is great because that is where I am planning to catch his show. His catwalk events really do look pretty awesome. 20131112-173846.jpg

Very much inspired by music and storytelling, Kilian Kerner writes a lyric for each collection, which is then played live by respective live artists at his shows. Manufactured in Germany, his diffusion line Kilian Kerner Senses is what he's most known for in the UK. Materials such as cotton, viscose, wool and modal are made into dresses, skirts and shirts, and feature tailoring details that echo his principal collection. In the UK he is starting his successful second season with Kilian Kerner Senses at House of Fraser with prices ranging between £119 to £149 - truly attainable.

He's doing fantastically when you think that the brand only properly started in 2008 and it is now retailed in 14 countries. And apparently he loves marketing - you can tell!
