The Event Making a Splash at this Year’s Berlin Fashion Week: the STYLIGHT Fashion Influencer Awards

By Charlotte Stringer, Style Editor at

This Tuesday saw the return of the most exciting awards show around, the STYLIGHT Fashion Influencer Awards (SFIAs), honouring online fashion influencers, IT girls and boys, and tastemakers from around the globe at a secret location in Berlin.

With the likes of supermodel Bar Refaeli, London It girls Zara Martin and Laura Whitmore, and the Made in Chelsea boys in attendance, the most fashionable kids around took their seats for awards.

Dutch blogger Linda Tol took how the award for Rising Star of the Year, wearing an incredible powder blue feathery shift dress which perfectly complemented her icy blonde hair. Best German Style Blog, as voted for by Jolie magazine’s readers, was awarded to Maja Wyh. Next up was Most Influential Fashion Blog which went to pretty Parisienne Betty Autier of Le Blog de Betty. Betty shined in a knee length black dress, metallic jacket and stunning gold headpiece.

Swedish DJ of the moment Klingande took the stage halfway through the awards, providing the soundtrack to German streetwear brand Tigha’s runway show in the form of his hit Jubel.

The Italians were in favour at this year’s ceremony with Best Men’s Fashion Blog being awarded to the incredibly dapper Mariano di Vaio of MDV Style, who wowed the crowds in an immaculately cut blue suit. Fellow countryman Riccardo Pozzoli, of The Blonde Salad Crew, also looked sharp in a slim-fit black suit and skinny tie, as he collected his award for Most Successful Blogger Business.

The evening was rounded off with a special achievement award, Fashion Influencer of the Year, which went to blogosphere darling, Kristina Bazan of Kayture. Kristina looked stunning in a black lace jumpsuit by Ellie Saab as she accepted the award, stating “I feel so honored! It is really crazy because it is a huge sign of recognition for all the work that my team and I have put into the blog.”
