How I met Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs was the host of this year's 'Designer for Tomorrow' fashion award by Peek & Cloppenburg therefore he was also present during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. For this reason there was a 'Meet Marc Jacobs' event on Wednesday, July 7, at the P&C store in Tauentzienstra├če. The 'Meet Marc Jacobs' was in fact more an ordinary autograph session but nonetheless we queued up like hundreds of other Marc Jacobs admirers did (glad we got there early) because when will you get another chance so soon to see one of the most influencing and relevant fashion designers of today? He arrived on time and we didn't have to wait that long until we got our autographs signed (with a heart!). He came across really pleasant and was very friendly and I must say I've never seen such a perfect white shirt. Afterwards we got a bottle of champagne - courtesy of P&C - and set off for my next appointment at Soho House Berlin where I got a styling by ghd. I usually have very straight hair and my stylist made it wavy. I was sceptical at first but when I saw the result I really liked it. I looked like a modern hippie which was very suitable for the great hot summer day and the hair style fitted to my dress. It was great to take a break and just sit back at the posh, temperature-controlled suite in Soho House and do nothing while I got my hair done. Thank you for that ghd!
