She, the modern Berlin woman in softly flowing plissé, diaphanous lace creations with their floral beauty and open mesh structures in the form of organic elements – these wisps of fabric allows her to dissolve in a combination of lightness, transparency and modern coolness. Here and there a sparkling embellishment reflects the city lights. The Berlinoise plays with contrasts – and is delicate and raw at the same time. Self-confidence and effortless style on all levels define her individualistic attitude. She loves the fast moving, the urban and industrial, the big city of Berlin and its influences. At the same time she infuses all her memories and illusions of France into her life here, in the rough metropolis.

THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN by Ana Locking at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Madrid

THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN by Ana Locking at Mercedez Benz Fashion Week Madrid

nspired by Thomas Mann's novel. "The Magic Mountain" takes us on a roller-coaster ride in which a sense of nostalgia for Old Europe goes hand in hand with American pop iconography.
Mann's novel is set in a centre for rest and recovery in the Swiss Alps, and it is in this sense that the emotional ups and downs of the patients at the sanatorium reflect the curves and ups and downs of the roller coaster, leading to the creation of my own Magic Mountain. In this sanctuary, time seems to unfold in a different way, creating a temporal realm that is different to the one we are accustomed to. In this parallel reality, the idea of rest and preservation contrasts entirely with that of the ceaseless and incessant movement of contemporary life.
