FRANKfurt Style Award 2016: We are proud to be members of the jury!

FRANKfurt Style Award 2016: We are proud to be members of the jury! 1800 1358 Galia Brener

Fashion is finally squeezing itself into our little city with a big attitude and we are very happy and proud to be a part of it. It’s coming to us in the form of an award and the name is FRANK! My favorite designer and friend, Albrecht Ollendiek and I will be members of the jury, selecting the finalists that will be announced at the gala event on September 23rd, 2016.

What, or better, who the hell is FRANK? This is the new name given to the Frankfurt Style Award, which takes place every year in our city. This talent contest encourages fashion design students from all over the world to send in their spectacular creations, in order to win the best FRANK award. This year, we had applications from Germany, China, Italy, Ireland, Singapore, Israel, Poland, USA, India, France, Portugal, Spain, Finland, Indonesia, Russia and many more countries! Over the last few years, the Frankfurt Style Award has gained a large popularity, and this year the gala will take place at the beautiful Alte Oper building, in the heart of Frankfurt.

I cannot express how excited I am to be part of the jury for FRANK! I’m always happy when young designers get a chance to show their visions to the world and make a difference in the fashion scene, not to mention get a great opportunity to produce their first collection!

Last week I met with Albrecht Ollendiek and asked him a few questions:


Gali: What was your first fashion inspiration?

Albrecht: Old Vogue Magazines when I was 8

Gali: What do you love about fashion?

Albrecht: Being completely free and independent

Gali: What inspires you now?

Albrecht: The old spirit of the Trans-Siberian Railway and the drag Make Up of Make Up Artist Miss Fame

Gali: What are your future goals?

Albrecht: Keeping on working for and with great people

Gali: How do you feel about being a jury member of FRANK?

Albrecht: Proud


In my opinion, Albrecht is one of the finest couturiers in Germany. His exclusive visions and creations are some of the most unique that I have seen and are definitely an inspiration for me. Albrecht says that his style is characterized by a quiet, deliberately unspectacular luxury. No “In” or “Out”, but rather a continuous and perpetual metamorphosis of his special handwriting. His fashion philosophy is, “It’s not what you wear but how you wear it.”

Aside from Albrecht Ollendiek and myself, there are a few more renowned members of the jury, such as Duncan Liu, fashion designer and expert from China, René Lang, Angelica Kaminsky, CEO und Founder of The Haute Future Fashion Academy in Milan. Last but not least, a guest of honor from France, Dominique Deroche, who served as right hand to Yves Saint Laurent for over 40 years and currently acts as representative of the Foundation Pierre Bergé Yves Saint Laurent.

When asked about the Frankfurt Style Award, Dominique Deroche answered, “Frankfurt Style Award is a fantastic opportunity for international talents at the beginning of their ambitious career path. Having worked closely together with Yves Saint Laurent for more than 40 years, I know that he would appreciate my engagement in this International Talent Contest for Fashion & Design.”

I, as well as the other jury members, am beyond thrilled for this exciting upcoming event. I will wear a fabulous gown designed by Albrecht Ollendiek, and will blog live videos and photos from the event gala for you on my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Your Gali

Versace Spring Summer 2015 Collection

Versace Spring Summer 2015 Collection 1200 894 Galia Brener

Whoever says that Frankfurt is not chic, has obviously never been to the Goethestrasse, which boasts store after store of the best couture brands in the world. Last Friday the highlight was the Versace store, presenting its spring summer 2015 collection.


It has been a week filled with glamour and Champagne for me, and my visit to Versace did not change that. I was greeted at the door by the elegant Emanuela Canto, the store manager of Versace. I could see that she was preparing for a while for this dazzling event, running around with a sparkle in her eyes and mesmerizing the guests with her melodic Italian voice.


I wanted to capture all of my favorite outfits for your dear readers, so I didn’t take a seat at the show. Instead, I stood at the end of the runway, waiting for each model to strut seductively towards me so that I can photograph each look directly from the front. I absolutely adore to make my own photos and show you personally what my eyes see. As usual, the Versace models were as gorgeous as ever – tall, young, sexy and straight from Milano – to show us how these beautiful outfits can be worn and shown off.


The main colors for the season were pastels, black, white and some splashes of color, used to accent the details. There were many geometrical patterns to be seen, as well as some glittering material that flicked like diamonds when the models walked underneath the spotlight. Some pieces had long skirts on the front and back, yet revealing the entire left leg, all the way up to the thigh. Versace is definitely making sure that it will be a very hot summer this year – including lots of bare stomachs for the ladies. Talk about sensuality in the form of clothing! What I loved were the many a-line short dresses, which took me back to the 60s, yet had a sharp modern touch.


As the show ended, many of the women were already running up to Manuela, waiting to secure their favorite outfit in their size. I made my way to a soft black leather jacket, hanging seductively in the front area of the store and quietly calling my name. Those who know me, know about my passion for tight leather jackets. This particular one is a beauty that must live in my closet.


I had a very nice chat with the models and they told me that this collection was one of their favorites in the past years. I definitely agreed. The time was running like speed of light and Cinderella had to leave the Versace Ball, thankfully with both shoes on, plus a nice little present for later. Thank you dear Emanuela Canto for a wonderfully organized event and brining the Italian flair to our mini cosmopolitan city with a big attitude!
