It’s that time again: Berlin becomes the center of the international world of fashion. Berlin Fashion Week 2015 is coming up, so the city will show its most stylish side between the 19th and 21st of January. Here you get all the information you need for the biggest fashion event of the year.
Since 2007 the Berlin Fashion Week has taken place every year and in this short time it has gained astonishing international recognition. Among the fashion weeks in Paris, Milan, London and New York the Berlin Fashion Week is one of the Big Five, the worlds biggest fashion events. Since 2014 the Fashion Week has taken place even twice a years, but especially in January the big names in the scene stream in and out to present their new collections.
Even though the trade fair is limited to a selected audience you can still sit in the front rows: The big fashion shows in the tent of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Brandenburg Gate will be the highlights again – and you can visit them. Both haut couture and street wear can be seen here and the top international designers will match upcoming locals from Berlin.
Among the central shows there will be a couple of other fashion shows, like the GREENshowroom and the Ethical Fashion Show, both for eco-friendly and fair traded clothing. Also, at Lavera Showfloor there will be at least four public shows daily. Furthermore there are going to be events, concerts and parties in the name of fashion all through the city.
