Green Guide Berlin Fashion Week July 2012

Dienstag, Juni 26th, 2012 -

Berlin Fashion Week starts on Tuesday, the 3rd of July, and you’ll be better prepared! To help you find all the green hotspots, we have sorted out the green brands, showrooms and events in the city.. you will find it underneath.. everything you need to navigate green and glamorous through the days and nights of fashion week. This is just a blog article and not a certification output, so you might still want to talk with the brands about their social and ecological standards before you place your order.

Stay cool, bring your sun cream and rock your Berlin Fashion Week!

The tradeshows – the second edition of the Ethical Fashion Show is showing a serious growth of exhibitors, and together with Green Showroom they are presenting about 100 exhibitors now. Meanwhile we see a further decline of green brands at the Premium, and after the InFashion gave up their Berlin edition, also their platform GreenGlamour has disappeared. Together with the showrooms and the shows we estimate the amount of green fashion brands present during Berlin Fashion Week to be about 140. Kuyichi is not present at Bread&Butter, therefore the promise of a women collection of Knowledge Cotton Apparel might be enough reason to make a visit there anyway.

The showrooms – A showroom highlight this time might be the Austrian Upcycling Showroom, showing more then ten Austrian designers who specialized in upcycling. Also in Mitte: Eco Showroom invites professionals with vegan food and make up sessions, and just around the corner you should check out the new collection of Umasan. Down in the Neukölln ghetto there are Scoop and the opening of the new head quarter and shop of the Berlin label Treches. Don’t forget to chill out with Slowmo in Friedrichshain or visit CUBE showroom in the west. And for your own green fashion shopping: get dressed at the Pop Up Shop at Ethical Fashion Show and the Berlin concept store Wertvoll.

The events – in Berlin you can easily get the feeling that you’re missing something, and this Fashion Week you have to choose wisely. The central green fashion night will be Thursday evening, with the Cotton Summit at the Ethical Fashion Show, the invited-only Innatex Lounge at Das Hotel and later in the evening the debuting Yeswedo! party in the Berlin club Watergate. Then, there’s the Walk of Change by Christoph Harrach, and the Fashion Trendwalk by Eco Showroom. There’s the shows at Lavera Showfloor, the last show by Esther Perbandt is a good reason to party at the After Show Party on Friday.

Esther Perbandt AW2012 collection

Donnerstag, Januar 12th, 2012 -

Next week Esther Perbandt will present her Autumn/Winter Collection 2012 at Capsule Berlin. What you can look forward to is a collection kept completely in black with recyclable chains and deconstructed tartan that reminds of elegant aesthetics in old Hitchcock movies. 60 % of the fabrics used for the sample collection are sustainable and with the final collection she aims to increase that amount even more. Visit the Esther Perbandt sales page for more information and the actual Lookbook.

The Capsule trade show started in New York in 2007 and made its debut in Berlin last summer. Now for the second time it provides a platform for contemporary fashion and young labels from the premium segment. Edina Sultanik, one of the main organisers explains how they came up with the idea for the new ‘anti’-fair. Unsatisfied with existing fairs, their aim was to create a new fair with an avant-garde touch and cool flair. The first Capsule became an instant success. Read the complete (German) interview here.

We are excited to participate this year and present Esther Perbandt’s new collection. So don’t miss stopping by when you come to the city next week.

The Berlin Fashion Week Eco Guide

Freitag, Januar 6th, 2012 -

About ten days to go, and then it’s Berlin Fashion Week again… We recommend you bring your walking shoes this time, as it seems there will be more fairs than ever and the green brands are spread on many of them. Consider it a challenge to catch as many venues as possible..

We have counted over 120 green fashion brands that present themselves at the next Berlin Fashion Week. This is much more than last summer and equals the number of last winter. The rise may be partially due to the debut of Ethical Fashion Show Berlin, which presents most green fashion brands, and it definitely proves the vitality of the green fashion scene.

The brands, the trade shows, the showrooms, the parties – Green fashion is more alive than ever in Berlin.

We wish you a happy fashion week!

Debut of the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin

Mittwoch, Dezember 7th, 2011 -

Where to find the best selection of green fashion labels? In Berlin, of course! This January during the Berlin Fashion Week the first edition of the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin is expected, taking place at the impressive old power station E-werk in Berlin-Mitte. The event has just put their website online (though still only in German) and published the first list of exhibitors. Among them some classic eco-labels such as Komodo, Ideo, Ethos Paris, a selection of up-cycling labels such as Milch and Reclothings, designer labels such as Studio Jux, Elementum and Banuq, and newcomers such as Samorito and Yog:k. Remarkable is the presence of the conventional players Trigema with their Change collection and Otto with their Wild Earth Collection.

The Ethical Fashion Show Berlin is organized by the Messe Frankfurt, who are also the organizers of the luxury platform Green Showroom in Hotel Adlon, which is located in the same area as the E-Werk.

Next to a trade show for professionals, the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin offers an Ethical Fashion Shop that is accessible for the public. The shop is organized by the master students of the “Sustainability in Fashion” Masters programm of the Esmod University in Berlin. The Shop is supervised by Bernd Hausmann from Glore, and also Beyond Berlin‘s Fredericke Winkler and Alexander Bretz  had their input by guiding the students in marketing and communications.

We are looking forward to an interesting Berlin Fashion Week and wish the organizers and exhibitors a good and successful kick-off.
