Raise your glasses: last week MCM joined Germany's celebrities, fashion insiders and journalists toasting to the launch of Martina Rinks' newest Book called "Fashion Germany" at The Corner Berlin. The unforgettable event was celebrated by Berlin's finest selection of stars and fashion lovers such as fashion journalist & former Vogue Editor-in-Chief Angelica Blechschmidt, jewellery designer Saskia Diez and model Shermine Sharivar, to name a few.
In her newest work Fashion Germany (Prestel Verlag, 2014), the internationally renowned author Martina Rink (aka “Isabella Blow”) introduces the most important public figures of the German Fashion industry/scene, such as photographer Peter Lindbergh, artist Armin Morbach, Fashion Fair Manager Anita Tillmann, Creative Director Mirko Borsche, journalist Christoph Amend, PR lady Vanessa von Bismarck, Fashion Stylist Julia von Boehm or the Editor-in-chief and blogger Sandra Bauknecht. Designers, fashion icons & models received exclusive features in this book alongside a selection of important protagonists that often operate in the background behind-the-scenes. With personal interviews, handwritten articles and top-class imagery, a fascinating portrait of influential Germans in the international world of fashion was created.
During Berlin Fashion Week 2014, the exclusive book was presented alongside with a Limited Edition MCM Book Cover showing a special design created by illustrator Jasmin Khezri (aka "Irmas World“).
Haven't heard of this cute drawing? Let me introduce you to this animated fashion icon:

In celebration of MCM's patronage of fashion & the arts, this fashion insider made an exclusive cameo on our beautiful Limited Edition book cover.
