sorry to have kept you waiting, but the thing is, this week's corner view is supposed to be about street style. and for several days now i've been trying to pluck up enough courage to actually photograph people on the street. so easy - just spot someone interesting, walk up to them and ask them hey, can i take your picture? shouldn't be a problem, right? only, it is. i swear, there were one or two times, i was that close to doing it. and then didn't. so i've looked through my existing pictures - and was surprised how often i seem to have snapped people anyway. so here goes:
let's face it, berlin isn't exactly the fashion capital of the world and probably will never be. but people here are very relaxed about fashion. it really is anything goes. there are some parts of town, where people are more adventurous and daring in what they wear - say in mitte or friedrichshain (some pictures here and here) - but mostly, it seems everyone just does what they like. you'll see ladies in fur, punks in black with green hair, hipsters in outrageous, self-designed outfits with big nerd glasses, very traditionally dressed turkish ladies with headscarves and young fashion-conscious turkish and russian teenagers. so if you plan on coming to berlin, promise me one thing: don't waste any time on wondering what to wear, you'll fit right in, no matter what.
