Lala Berlin's collection was called 'Kurt Cobain in Africa,' elements which mixed surprisingly well.

Another unexpected combination: Lena Hoschek presented 1950s-inspired pin-up looks with bondage elements.

Starstyling is an equally eccentric label that went for a mix of geometry and tribal patterns this season.

Berlin - like its big brother, London - predominantly serves international professionals as a talent-scouting platform, and there were a variety of young designer showcases to choose from:
