#AmandineFashionWeekXGalaxyS5 is the hashatg i used on my social media this week to report about my very own Berlin Fashion Week. I used the hashtag because it is a cooperation with Samsung. For the entire fashion week, Samsung gave me to try, a Samsung Galaxy S5. I am not a phone expert so i will tell you what i think of the phone, from a fashionista point of view.
The pictures below are pictures i already posted on my social media channels as well as some new pictures i took during fashion week, with the Samsung Galaxy S5.
This was a perfect experience to try the phone since I use my phone mainly to take pictures. Many people i know who have a Samsung phone told me they were very happy with it, especially with the camera. Indeed the camera is very good, i love the large screen and therefore the large angle. I only think that for pictures taken in the dark, the camera needs some improvement.
I also use my pictures for my instagram account and therefore i needed to download a few apps. Until now i was an iphone user so that i am used to the Itunes apps. Androids apps are something new for me, and i could see that not all the apps available for iphone are available for android phones. For example, i resize my pictures that I use on instagram with Squaready, but Squaready is not available for android. I found a very similar app though, that resized my pictures and that was as well for free.
I was very happy with the apps. There are plenty of it, either in the Samsung store with apps especially made for samsung and there is the Google Play store with tones of app that are available for all android phones.
Talking about apps, i will now talk about games. I love to play games when i am sitting in the underground so i downloaded a few. What i really liked was that the screen is huge and therefore perfect to play. The colours are amazing as well, so that is good to play or watch a video. (I know some of you watch youtube videos on their phones).
To finish, i was really happy with the Samsung Galaxy S5, and since i have to buy a new phone, mine is dying, i am actually thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy S5 instead of the iphone 5S i had in mind first.
Also the Galaxy S5 has some more application that the Iphone hasn’t. For example magazine, where you can find in one single app articles about subject you’re interested in. For example if you are interested in fashion, you will find there all the fashion news. But there is as well an health app that helps you follow your fitness goals. I started to use it but haven’t tested it completely yet. I only used the pedometer (count your steps) and the heart rate tool.
Now back to fashion week. Below is what i did. I didn’t do much show because is it very stressful and for me it’s ok to watch the pictures after the show on th internet. I don’t need to see a show live and prefer the agency to give my invitation to someone who would really see a fashion show live.
First event, and first picture above was a fashion week opening party on monday. It took place at Weekend, with a barbecue, cocktails and an amazing view over the city.
On Tuesday I went to The Aqueonautas event. Arqueonautas is a fashion brand that is inspired by the Maritime atmosphere. They did a fashion show and then Kevin Costner with his band Modern West played a concert. And then we watched the unbelievable football game Brazil – Germany.
This below was my look for the day. I tried something new with my hair. I really liked the look and will try to do a braid like this myself the next days.
On Wednesday i went to the Fossil watch lounge. I had a look to the new watch collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs, Diesel, Emporio Armani and Skagen. I totally fell in love with the huge Diesel watches. I don’t wear a watch so often so when i wear one i want the watch to be like an accessories so the one from Diesel is perfect to make a statement.
On the evening i went to eat with my friend Vicky and other blogger girls before we went to the Uhlalà Beachwear party hosted by Bonnie Strange.
Thursday was a busy day. I had a cooperation with Marc Cain and other international bloggers so we spent the all day together. But more on this tomorrow on the blog.
After the event i went to the Samsung Fashion Cool Downer Event in the Inland Showroom and Shop. Samsung took fashion week as a motto to present it’s fridge, the Samsung Food Showcase. Over a glass of Thomas Henry limonade, I discovered there is a fridge especially made for fashionista or better said #kitchenista which means for girls who keep their beauty products or clothes in the fridge (For example, you can put a cashmere knit in the fridge, it will avoid the item to be covered in bobbles. As well you can put your nail polish into the fridge to keep it fluid). So for all #kitchenistas, Samsung created a fridge with a second door for all your beauty products so that they stay separated from drinks and foodstuff. How brilliant?!!
At night i first went to the Lacoste X Interview Magazine event for the launch of the Lacoste L!ve Fragance with live gig and later to the Reserved party starring Goergia May Jagger who opened the Reserved fashion Show.
On Friday, i went to the Fashion Blogger Café hosted by Styleranking to have a chat with my other fellow bloggers. Such a nice location at the Tempelhof harbour. There even was a mini pool!!
And at night, to close Fashion week i went to the Michalsky Stylenite. Highlight of the evening beside the collections was Rita Ora, performing live on stage!
The last picture is my outfit for the Michalsky Stylenite. I asked the taxi driver to take a picture of me, but he forgot my feet
