Fashion for beer festivals in autumn in the European Alps
...seen on 13 August 2013 at the 'Oktoberfest' collections by Falke (stockings with red bow and golden pretzel) and Pandora (bracelet with charms like the mountain flower Edelweiss).
Each year in autumn, the European Alps region celebrates the 'Oktoberfest'. The festival on the green field originates from Munich, Bavaria in Germany and is held also in other cities such as in Vienna. In Munich, the 180th 'Oktoberfest' runs from 21 September until 6 October 2013; the Red Cross organizes even this year the online voting for the best creation of the so called 'Wiesnbutton' ('Wiesn' means green field) for the members of the medical ambulance at the beer festival in Munich. Voting until 15 August 2013!

The jewellery label's tipp: add charms made of Murano glass in the colors of the 'dirndl' (traditional Euroepan Alps dress); seen in August 2013 at Pandora.
