Sonne, Fashion, gute Laune. Das Mode und Designfestival le bloc fand am Samstag in Köln unter strahlendem Himmel statt. Kleine Boutiquen öffneten ihre Pforten und lockten die modebegeisterten Besucher mit sommerlicher Mode, DJ’s mitten im Ladenlokal und Getränkespecials an. Highligts des Tages: Die Modenschaus um 16 Uhr und 18 Uhr im Parkhaus. Unser CM Models-Team hat sich mit Kamera bewaffnet und unter die bunte Masse gemischt.

Last minute preparations for le bloc 2015
Early at 8 a.m. our CM Models team is busy with the last organizational preparations for le bloc 2015. The models are being fitted, make-up artists are working, curlers are being twisted into the hair, the smell of hairspray is in the air. Anticipation for the fashion show outweighs nervousness. We set up the last flash booths. Visitors can snap fun souvenir photos and take the pictures straight away for an unforgettable day.
Holiday feeling with focus on fashion & design
The streets in the Belgian quarter slowly fill up around mid-morning with fashion-loving visitors in colourful dresses, airy tan tops or in the trendy hippie look with flower hair bands. Along with music and a cup or two of Malibu, the guests are amazed at the fashion of the urban and small “in” boutiques in the Belgian quarter. Not only the children are happy about the colourful balloons, bags swing back and forth in many hands. In a holiday feeling, fashion enthusiasts of all ages stroll through the streets wearing sunglasses or hats. The sun beams down from the sky and shows the Belgian quarter from its best side. Pop-up stores open in some backyards, around 6000 guests enjoy Belgian specialties. The highlight of le bloc 2015: the fashion shows at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the multi-storey car park at the corner of Maastrichterstrasse and Brabanterstrasse. 55 models will walk the urban catwalk for various young designers and small boutiques from the Belgian quarter.
