In December I attended once again Zermattfashion in beautiful Zermatt. Also this year the pretty winter sports resort became a fashion hotspot in the mountains. From 13.12. till 16.12.2018 Zermattfashion took place this year. There were great brands, talented artists and edgy models – a colorful mix of talents.
I was also allowed to spend the night in a beautiful room of the Hotel Chesa Valese, with more details.
The Shows 2018
On Friday I arrived just in time for attending the New Comer Fashion Show at Vernissage Zermatt. In the Club Vernissage by Heinz Julen, who already served as the location for the first 2 editions, five talented young Swiss designers joined us: Gela Wesh, Nasuri, Wild Luxe, Lahara, Ghislain Clerc and outfits div. Swiss young designer of the local concept store “Fernanda’s” presents. Entertainment was provided by the talented Lucas Fischer.
Personally, I particularly liked the collections of Nasuri and Lahari – especially because of the materials used. The evening rehearsals were of course also breathtaking.
On Saturday, the Grand Brand Fashion Show was presented. I was especially looking forward to this program point. At the Fashion Plaza, outdoor in front of the Restaurant Molino, five established labels – Fusalp, Jet Set, Peak Performance, NILE and INUIKII showed their latest winter looks. As always, Jet Set was one of my favorites – I just love the retro chic of her ski outfits. On the other hand, I always associate Nile with wintry bohochic and coolness – while Fusalp and Peak Performance score with functionality.
Another highlight was as in the past year, the atmosphere in the open air at minus temperatures under cuddly blankets. We were entertained properly by the talented singer JIZELLE, who melted some spectators and the snow with her voice. Many spectators and of course I was also looking forward to three well-known faces among the models. The two winners of the Elite Model Look Contest Switzerland Léo Calani and Helena Fritz as well as Switzerlands Next Top Model winner Savior also ran over the catwalks.
My stay at Hotel Chesa Valese
Already on Friday I was able to check in at the homely hotel Chesa Valese. I was allowed to unpack my suitcases in the Chalet Apartment Ca ‘d’Angelina directly opposite the main building and immediately felt at home there.
Me and also my bff, who accompanied me, immediately felt welcome and at home. The apartment has a modern open kitchen, a living and dining area, a spacious bedroom, bath / shower and two toilets and a nice terrace. Especially the interior design with the large window front and the many warm wood I really liked.
For having breakfast we went to the hotel itself and were spoiled with everything what our heart desired. Whether sweet or savory, freshly squeezed orange juice or delicious scrambled eggs. The location of the Chesa Valese is also ideal – we were able to reach all important points within a few minutes on foot while walking through the enchanting mountain village of Zermatt. By the way, you will be greeted at the station by the hotel’s own electric car and taken to the hotel.
I’m already looking forward to my next visit to Zermatt.
