When the stars begin filling the front row seats and the models take over the catwalk, then it’s time again for Fashion Week in Berlin. There’s plenty to discover from 18 to 22 January 2016 when young up-and-comers and the more established designers descend upon Berlin for the 13th Fashion Week. Here are some of the most important facts & figures.
An absolute highlight: the fashion shows in the tent at Brandenburg Gate. Designer Sasa Kovacevic will open the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on 19 January with a show of the 2016/2017 autumn/winter collection from his label SADAK. Next to international designers, Fashion Week will also be a stage for today’s hottest young Berlin design labels.
One hot tip is the Berlin fashion label MALAIKARAISS. This year MALAIKARAISS goes Hollywood with an exclusive jewellery inspired by the new Star Wars film. Visitors can check out the collection with popular characters like Chewbacca, Darth Vader or R2D2 on 20 January 2016 in the mecollectors Room in Berlin-Mitte.
