|MAGDA BERLINGER : Tuesday, 28 October 2003|
An accomplished wardrobe stylist, Magda Berlinger's passion for one-off vintage pieces is clearly apparent in her seasonal collections. During her years as a print and video tastemaker, Magda always led the pack in sniffing out emerging designers, paired flee-market finds with European couture and embellished beautifully on the essence of each personality she dressed. If you knew firsthand the effortless artistry of her daily life, you
d also want her to design your clothes and style every camera-ready moment of your reality video.
Magda's presentation for Spring 04 was set in gallery format at The Standard with mannequins and seated models showcasing a capsule collection of tie-die loungewear separates, soft ticking stripe tunics and several outstanding pieces combining chain maille and leather. The piece de resistance and obvious editorial favourite was a gorgeous series of ribbon and lace dresses, all in vintage cream. The coveted rouched goatskin gladiator boots worn by the models were also her own.
|Magda's theatrical talents are so
strong that future involvements in costuming would be no surprise.
Meantime, a host of celebrity fans including Tracee Ellis Ross (would
attended the show), Drew Barrymore & Selma Blair keep her busy.
