Michalsky’s Stylenite Fashion Show 2011
Bringing Berlin’s Summer Fashion Week to a glorious close, star designer Michael Michalsky upped the avant-garde ante with a dramatic show. (In)famous for his exclusive events and a knack for extravagant entertainment, Michalsky continued his string of dedicated StyleNites, with a night at the circus – or rather, at Berlin’s spacious Tempodrom tent. Proceedings started with a bang (and plenty of dry ice) to welcome the first ever fashion show by London-based label Maharishi, followed by a brief performance by opera singer Nadja Michael, who teamed up with Munich DJ Hell for a contemporary take on Medea.
flora&faunavisions came up with a novel, round catwalk 17 m in diameter mirroring the tent shape for the best possible distance between guests and models.

The task: the show’s creative video direction, a clever video & live camera concept (including all content and programming) for a dynamic, split-screen live video presentation of the outfits on the runway. flora&faunavisions was responsible for the overall direction to ensure the smooth interplay of video and styles on the catwalk.
