Berlin Fashion Week: 3-7 July
Twice a year, Berlin becomes the centre of fashion and lifestyle. At the Berlin Fashion Week, happening between the 3rd and 7th July, established International and German designers, as well as upcoming young designers, will show their latest collections. Berlin, known as the rebel fashion city, nonconformist and modern, is the perfect stage to showcase the latest trends.
The Berlin Fashion Week and MBFW will also show this July, innovative fashion and discuss topics such as Eco-Design and Fashion Tech. The events' locations will include a raw industrial site with a great atmosphere, the Kraftwerk, a former power station built at around the same time as the Berlin Wall, and Ewerk, a very fitting location for MBFW’s concept: “Follow MBFW - Liberate Fashion”. Besides the shows, there will also be trade fairs, exhibitions, conferences and various other events around fashion.
Here are some of our favourite designers that will take part in the Berlin Fashion Week:
The designer received the “Designer of the Year 2017” award, her creations are glamorous, with sumptuous fabrics and elegant and very feminine silhouettes. Gockel will present her latest collection, which we are eager to see.
Born and raised in Russia, Luft studied Fashion design in Germany and founded her eponymous brand while working for internationally renowned brands. She makes handmade couture and has a line of luxury Prêt-à-Porter with romantic yet modern clothes.
Rieke Common worked as a fashion designer for a few brands, including Oscar de la Renta, before launching her eponymous label in 2014 in Munich. Her designs are fun and feminine, with a mix of prints and colours that convey joie de vivre with elegance.
With his S/S18 collection, “Freedom”, Ostertag said that Life should be an infinite celebration, an endless party. The Berlin-based designer founded his label in 2006, after studying fashion at Central St Martin in London. He uses high-quality material and sustainable production to make his gorgeous pieces. We hope his party will be still going strong in July :)
