Zizzi invited us, the brand ambassadors, for a fashion trip to Berlin to check out their lounge at the Panorama Fashion Fair, during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was such a great experience, I had a blast. And of course, I made images (and video) of everything so you guys can also be part of it. Come to check out all the plus size fashion trends, cool bloggers that visited us there, plus an exclusive sneak peek at the autumn winter 2017 collection.
I couldn’t ask for a better set up: fly from Oslo to Berlin, find a beautiful bag with different Zizzi outfits to choose, a cute letter, chocolate and a good bed to rest before we headed to the event. Panorama is one of the largest fashion fairs in the world, where the brands and retailers make business. It is basically where fashion happens – nothing goes to stores if buyers and brands don’t work together right?
Zizzi had the coolest stand in the whole fair, seriously. It was amazing. They had a barista making fresh coffee and served the coldest sparkling wine with super tasty cakes. Ok, food is important. But what they delivered was fashion trends and good encounters.
The blogger event they arranged took several bloggers from all over Europe to get t know Zizzi’s AW17 collection. They got all the bloggers together in the beautiful lounge to talk a little about the brand, then we all headed to the stand and in groups, we talked to the Head of designers Tina Sund about the collection, inspirations and trends. The other group had a DIY session with inspirational postcards that Zizzi will send on our behalf. This is seriously a cool idea.
The collection is inspired by the theme called bohemian heritage. It has an oriental mood mixed with English aristocratic charm, got a lot of texture, floral prints inspired by interiors, florals, velvets, pleads and transparency in different layers.
“Velvet is a key fabric for the collection and the biggest trend, also the floral prints are very important, of transparency, hairy, furry textures too, mixed with jeans for a rougher feeling”, says Tina.
Another super important trend is the “athleisure”, athlete and leisure, like a jogging pant with a feminine blouse and high heels. Sporty clothes being mixed with super feminine pieces are one super trend that we will see a lot around.
Before you wonder: the pretty dress I am wearing is in Zizzi stores and online now. yay!

I am glad to be a Zizzi ambassador. It feels priceless to work with such a responsible brand, that cares for the people, promote encounters and mostly, make fashion trends available to plus size public.
