BERLIN FASHION WEEK
Twice a year, Berlin becomes an international stage for fashion and lifestyle.
At the Berlin Fashion Week, fashion-lovers, buyers, trade visitors and media representatives meet for shows and awards. Find out about latest collections and trends at the trade fairs, visit exhibitions and off-site events.
The Berlin Fashion Week increasingly continues to focus as before on sustainability and fashion tech – in a digital & hybrid way. Visitors can expect fashion shows, presentations, conferences, expert talks, new formats, strong players, national & international designers.
FASHION OPEN STUDIO
Fashion Open Studio takes residence at Berlin Fashion Week March 15-17 with a series of designer open studios, short films, exhibitions and talks featuring an innovative cohort of local and international designers. This ongoing programme, supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises, now in its third season at Berlin Fashion Week, is designed to change the way we think about our clothes, and to highlight real solutions in practice. Fashion Open Studio invites you to meet the designers, understand their work, and creates a space for dialogue and an exchange of ideas and information.
THE BERLIN FASHION SUMMIT
202030 — The Berlin Fashion Summit is a cross-disciplinary platform, where avant-garde creatives meet industry stakeholders for constructive critical debates on the future of fashion. The aim is to bridge the gap between existing sustainability innovations and solutions with the industry’s need for pragmatic transformation guidelines and to envision tangible new alliances for new value chains for a sustainability-trendsetting future of fashion.
The 202030 Summit consists of two parts:
The Pop Up Think Tank is not public and serves as an open space for constructively-critical debates between experts in order to prepare the public summit’s quality content and clear messages.
The Summit serves as the main professional public part of the 202030 Summit and aims to open up the dialogue to a broader industry audience by offering compact and clear constructive input.
The 2020’s are destined to become the decade of glocal changemaking — now the need to transform outdated systems could meet a historic opportunity to combine recovery from the disturbing pandemic with all the benefits of sustainable development. Berlin is thriving itself to refocus on its roots as the European capital of cultural and creative industries and continues to focus on a sustainable future with a more than ever cross-disciplinary and cultural approach to celebrate fashion and the people involved.
