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.

Dawid Tomaszewski presented a very accomplished collection of evening gowns that German fashion fans hope will 'glamorize' the country's red carpets.
