Summary of the first Vienna Sock Exchange

About 25 people gathered for the first official Vienna Sock Exchange at the Cafe 7*Stern. We have successfully matched single socks during the Single Sock Herzblatt Dating. Amongst the delightful contestants were the illustrious Mehrta Shirzadian and Anton Parinov and many more, supported by the tunes of DJ Ümit and the moderation of Leonhard Horstmeyer (aka Leo Marlo). We showcased amazing sock fashion with our wonderful models Isabel, Leo Marlo, Mehrta and last but not least Ned Stranger, who also sang to us about losing a loved one (sock). All this against the backdrop of a single sock exhibition by Leo Marlo’s embalmed single sock and Mehrta Shirzadian’s sock heaven.

Vienna Sock Exchange is coming to Cafe 7*Stern

The 26th of May is a celebratory day that will be remembered in collective sock memory. Single socks have long lived a marginalized existence at the edge of sock society. This is now coming to an end with the first official Vienna Sock Exchange! Because:

Every sock is unique!

Every sock is worth of appreciation!

Every single sock is beautiful!
