A Passion for Fashion: The Kunsthal Rotterdam looks back at the 35-year career of one of France's seminal designers. Jean Paul Gautier. He earned the title of fashion's enfant terrible early on with his irreverent style. Entitled "The Fashion World of John Paul Gaultier," the show features highlights from the early 1970s to the present day. Black Beauty: The Berlin-based label Augustin Teboul is making its mark on the fashion scene for two reasons: Firstly - it's uncompromisingly consistent in terms of its look, and works only in black. Secondly, they manage a mix between haute couture and pret-à -porter, in which fine craftsmanship plays a major role. Not an easy set of credentials, and yet they pull it off. Cascade for Germany: The dance music group Cascada will represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest with their song 'Glorious'. We profile the lead singer of the trio, Natalie Horler. The other two band members are Manuel Reuter alias DJ Manian who is one of the two producers. The other is Yann Peifer alias Yanou who writes the songs and does the arrangements. The band has sold more than 30 million disks. Downhill Adventure: We check out speed riding (a cross between paragliding and skiing). We also visit the 360 Degrees extreme training facility which offers winter sports enthusiasts the ability to try out some sports without even needing snow. Locked in Love: Flowers, chocolates and now... padlocks are common symbols of love. Bridges across the world are becoming increasingly buried under the weight of locks as couple's express their love for one another by locking on. It's a trend that's taken hold from Paris to Rome, Cologne to New York. But can it replace cupid's arrow or a Valentine heart?
