Anne Gorke Stays True To Her Too Cool for Cruel Motto

July 12, 2014- Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, BERLIN : ANNE GORKE SS 2015 : Weimar is the cradle of Bauhaus, and while its principles were first applied to architecture, fashion designers, namely Anne Gorke, have taken those fundamental designs and made them relevant on the runway. Gorke’s green fashion was on display at Berlin Fashion Week with an emphasis on her knack for almost fooling the eye’s ability to decide where form meets function. Well-known for her responsible approach to environmental issues and meeting the needs of a society in constant flux, Gorke’s line consists of the most eco-friendly materials available to demonstrate how “going green” doesn’t mean sacrificing style.

POKO PANO starts off the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015 SS Collections *POOLSIDE*

the Raleigh Hotel, Miami Beach, July 20, 2014 by Jeimy Martinez
The Poko Pano collection made a splash  this season as the models walked inside the shallow edge of the beautiful Raleigh Pool. The designers kept hair and makeup simple with low ponytails and natural hues for lips and cheeks, but turned the colors, prints and accessories all the way up with vibrant colors and a full range of cuts for every silhouette. 

There were a variety of prints, ranging from animal prints to delicious tropical fruits. The accessories accentuated every part of the body, with flirty belts and long necklaces to a very chic cross draped on the back of a svelt model. For those wanting a little coverage, the collection included pants, kaftans and a MOD style mesh dress. To end the show, the models made a final lap around the pool dancing to the contagious rhythms of Brazilian music.
