The Beyond Fashion Summit: business exposure, knowledge exchange and networking beyond fashion and sustainability

The second edition of the international Beyond Fashion Summit 2012 takes place at the STATION-Berlin on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 November 2012.

Following the success of the inaugural event last year, with the 2012 edition, the Beyond Fashion Summit is set to establish itself as one of the leading international stages for the fashion industry to discuss sustainability and innovation. It offers a high profile environment for business, networking and knowledge exchange, and the ideal place to link your company to fashion, sustainability and innovation.

Beyond Fashion Summit 2012 offers a two-day conference, business talks and workshop programme – an accompanying printed report contains feature articles and interviews. The Summit provides a platform for genuine, sustainable innovation. Beyond dogmas, beyond business as usual and beyond fashion weeks.

It’s positioning outside of a fashion week gives space to discuss, exchange and get inspired away from the standard rush of fashion weeks and their trade fairs and catwalk shows. Alongside the keynote speeches and conference talks, a choice of interactive workshops is on offer – as well as business lounges and speed networking.


The Beyond Fashion Summit is initiated and organized by Beyond Berlin, consulting and sales agency for sustainable fashion. The board of organizers consists of Fredericke Winkler, Frans Prins and Lena Nocke.

The Beyond Fashion Summit is organized in cooperation with Newthinking Communications and Kern Kommunikation.
