Marcel OstertagBerlin Catwalk Highlights F/W 2012/13

Marcel Ostertag F/W 2012/13 catwalk show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin / 21.01.2012

He pulled the Andrej Pejic card, although it almost didn't show between Franziska Knuppe and former Germany's Next Top Models – if it hadn't been for the beard. Marcel Ostertag himself presented his last look on the catwalk, in a short silk dress and golden sequined coat, high heels and long hair. The audience hooted. The 31-year-old from Berchtesgarden does have good calves. Other than that, Ostertag presented the usual short silk dresses with geometric patterns in different colors. Everything was gray, black, brown and beige. Some items had baroque ornaments, others paisley, ranging from flashy hippie tunics to evening gowns. Towards the end, coats and dresses were embellished with fringes and embroidery, and covered with small golden sequins or lamé. And while the seats emptied, I was still sitting there, wondering, how many different kinds of dresses one can make from three shades of silk satin.
