Happy Monday! This week’s earworms come from the founder of Berlin-based fashion archive Disruptive Berlin, Brenda Weischer.
Brenda Weischer started as an accidental tastemaker. While posting images of herself and her all black-and-white wardrobe featuring mostly vintage designers such as Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester and Helmut Lang, she naturally began receiving multiple queries a day of “where did you get that top?” She realized there was a missing niche of well-cared for and considered clothing outside of the rare finds in vintage boutiques or consignment shops. Her personal closet was already highly curated; she made a hobby out of sleuthing around the internet for particular seasons of specific designers. After wearing, mending, and lending, she started to see she could make a business from her biggest interest: her closet. And so, she began selling from it, to her 93 thousand followers. This was the start of Disruptive Berlin. Brenda does not simply profit from her large following, but she also uses her platform to discuss oft-overlooked issues within the fashion realm (waste and inclusion) that not many companies discuss so casually, without filter.
And while Brenda is incredibly open with her tastes in all things wearable, readable, loungeable, and even edible, she is not so open with her music. Fräulein reached out to her, wondering if she might be interested in sharing what she has been listening to. Naturally, they’re catwalk-inclined, and we have quite the treat for you.
Below, find Brenda’s top ten favourite runway collections, as well as a playlist featuring their soundtrack.
