VIP Lounge opening at Frankfurt airport

VIP Lounge opening at Frankfurt airport 1280 720 Galia Brener

My day started off with a big bang of bright sunshine, as I opened my curtains to the wonderful view. The VIP shuttle was coming to pick me up at 9:30 am to drive me to the event. I’m a rather spontaneous lady, and didn’t have a single clue what I should wear that day. I knew that this is a very important and fabulous event, so I decided to go all out! Something wild and unforgettable. Luckily I received my psychedelic turquoise tutu a few weeks before and felt that this would be perfect for the occasion. I always trust my gut feeling and instincts, because they never deceive me.

As my doorbell rang, I flew downstairs and was escorted by a handsome young man into the stylish Bentley. A strong feeling of serenity and bliss washed over me, while the sun rays kissed my face, as we made our way towards my favorite airport. Instagramming and Snapchatting myself to oblivion, I haven’t realized that we finally arrived! My door was opened and I stepped onto the glamorous red carpet. There were many photographers and media people there, anticipating the celebrities to arrive. Smiling warmly at the cameras, I walked inside, curious beyond belief as to how the 1300m² lounge looks.

Upon entering the main area, I understood right away why the media and people speak so fondly about it! It’s basically everything one needs to relax in luxury and take a quiet time out while waiting for the plane to arrive. There are separate suites where the guests can escape to and spend their time as their hearts desire. There are different themes to each suite, making each new visit a unique experience. I was impressed by the bar and dining area and also the perfect gym and cigar lounge. Everything was designed to perfection by Bergit Gräfin Douglas, owner of MM Design in Frankfurt. What really caught my attention was the love to details. The juicy and happy colors on the walls, the sensual paintings, the remarkable books everywhere and much more! This is definitely a lounge that must be seen and experienced.

While making my behind the scenes video, I bumped into Kai Böcking, the beloved moderator. We talked about life and business ideas, while sipping on fresh orange juice. Later on, the glamorous Harald Glööckner and I had a nice chat in the oriental style suite downstairs. We talked about life, love and business. Harald told me how he came to his success. I have to say that he is a very warm, kind and sincere man, who left a very lovely impression on me. He has a very magnetic and inspiring presence. Harald was sweet and predicted my love future for this year and I was very happy to hear this prophecy! (See the funny video on my blog).

This chic VIP event brought many lovely people together. Thomas Anders of Modern Talking was there, who is a famous German singer, composer, and record producer. He was accompanied by his stylish wife Claudia Weidung-Anders. I have been gazing at Claudia’s outfit the entire day. It was a mixture between Coco Chanel herself and Karl Lagerfeld. We got a chance to chat in a quiet suite and make a nice mini photoshooting together. I was highly impressed by this ambitious, strong, chic, warm and lovely businesswoman. My dad is right, he says if the man is the head of the family, then the woman is the neck, which turns and leads! Smart man my Papa.

I was curious about Claudia’s business and she told me about her concept “HOME & DOGS”, which stands for understatement luxury. It includes everything from healthy, nutritious and gluten-free premium food to the chic dog bed & home accessories. Basically everything a dog and owner’s heart desires. She is inspired by the style of the Hamptons and Sylt, and one can definitely see her good taste!

After signing the VIP guest book and making a last round in the lounge, it was time to get into the Bentley shuttle and make my way back to the small city center with a big attitude. I have to admit that this was a very glam event. Everything was organized to perfection and all of the guests looked like they were enjoying themselves tremendously. I had a really great time as well and met many cool, new and interesting people. True to the lounge’s name, we were given the full VIP treatment and had all of our desires met. I will definitely come back to the lounge on my next trip!

Karl Lagerfeld Opening Event in Frankfurt

Karl Lagerfeld Opening Event in Frankfurt 1080 530 Galia Brener

Wednesday night was the long awaited opening event of the Karl Lagerfeld store in Frankfurt. I spoke to a few friends this week and everyone was very excited to come out and play. Not only was the new collection on display, but also original sketches drawn by Mr. Lagerfeld himself, decorated the walls of the store. It was a mixture of his famous fashion sketches along with drawings of himself, portraits and other models. It was very interesting to be so up close and person with his private works of art!

As we made our way into the store, we were greeted by Daniel Tobias Etzel of the WAOH agency, who did another fabulous job at bringing all of Frankfurt’s Who’s Who together and organizing such a glamorous event! I was excited to see some friends and acquaintances, which I haven’t seen in a while, and catch up about life, hanging out in the midst of the exciting flair. There were camera flashes going off in every corner of the store. The crowd was excited, enjoying the high of the bubbly champagne, beautiful handbags and crazy outfits!

I was pondering what to wear already weeks in advance. At the moment I’m having my blue period, like my wonderful idol Picasso. Blue is not my mood, but rather the shades of my current outfits. From blue bags to blue nail polish and blue dresses. Therefore naturally, I had to wear blue for the opening!

Knowing that Lagerfeld’s beloved color is black, going a completely different shade was not such a bad idea. Since I’m a cartoon nerd, I had to wear my new Japanese manga skirt. The extravagant blue silk design has various gold ancient God images all around the skirt. I fell in love with this unique piece as soon as I saw it in the store. What’s good enough for a leading manga character is good enough for me! To get the desired full puffy effect, I wore my largest petticoat underneath the skirt. I topped it off with a ribbed tank top of the same blue shade and a blue velvet bolero, to give the outfit a bit of a baroque touch. I needed a bit more “Bam”, so I work my little black rose hat and my vintage 50s gold purse. My feet were clad in my beloved platforms. Karl Lagerfeld has many cartoon characters on his accessories, so even thought the outfit was blue and not black, it still fit very well into the concept of the evening.

As we walked into the back of the room, we were handed a cold glass of champagne and macaroons, with Karl’s profile printed on top. What a chic and glamorous idea! The beautiful redhead Janet Maier and Ria were spinning their awesome house beats, adding some bass and funky sound to the fashion party. The attention was on them, as they spread the love. I must admit that the guests really made a great effort with their cool outfits, funky accessories and big statements! Many celebs were there, including my girl Sabrina Setlur, looking stylish and fabulous in her black sleek Lagerfeld dress.

I was walking around the store and taking photos, admiring the people around me, having fun and listening to the happy chatter. Many people were impressed by the event, saying that the Lagerfeld store is definitely an enrichment for Frankfurt and the Goethestrasse. I have to agree with them! I was also very impressed by the prices, making it affordable for everyone to find something that they love in the store.

Even thought Mercury Retrograde has started this week, I couldn’t help but notice the electric energy and smiles thrown around the bright store. I am happy to share with you my dears that yet again, another glamorous event was gloriously celebrated in my beloved Frankfurt. As the last glass of champagne was drunk, it was time to move on and indulge in a nice calorie-rich dinner. The girls were all hungry and calling my name. As I left the store, I turned around and glanced behind me, knowing that I will come back very soon indeed. Dear Karl, you are definitely more than welcomed to our little city with a big attitude!
