“Maybe the Mayans are right and the world will end this year, but at least we can have cute clothes,” joked designer Lena Hoschek at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin this month.
For her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Hoschek had her models strutting down the runway in Mexican/Mayan-inspired, vibrantly-colored skirts and dresses. The models’ faces were also painted like Calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls) often seen during Mexico’s celebration of Dia de los Muertos.
While the models’ make-up was drop dead gorgeous, Fashion News Live called Hoschek’s collection “anything but dead.” Adding, “The boldness of the patterns, the fabrics, and the fit and shape of the pieces make the woman wearing them look wundabare und sehr sexy.”
