Some facts about the Berlin Fashion Week
This fantastic event was launched for the first time in 2007 and since then underlines the importance of Berlin as an international fashion hub – every year. Both parts of the event basically turn the city into one gigantic catwalk. Amazing venues like churches, factory halls, clubs, museums and many others host shows, workshops, talks, conferences and a whole lot of cool parties. Over the years, the Berlin Fashion Week has evolved into the 5th biggest fashion event in the world.
A few highlights of the 2019 Berlin Fashion Week
Where to begin? The summer edition of the fashion week in Berlin is packed with events!
- If you want some insights into the fashion trends of tomorrow, the NEONYT should be way up on your to-do-list. This amazing fair unites both Greenshowroom and the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and will take place between the 2nd and the 4th of July in the “Kraftwerk Berlin”.
- As the Berlin Fashion Week is one of the most prestigious events in the fashion world, you’ll see (and maybe even meet) plenty of VIPs, celebrities and – in some cases – their discreet lady companions. One of the main attractions for the who is who of fashion and showbiz is without a doubt the “Vogue Fashion Party”.

A place to crash …
… is a key element of any fashion orientated travel experience. Well … or any travel experience for that matter. Berlin is THE tourist destination in Germany. And as such, it hosts numerous hotels and hostels. Depending on your travel budget, you can spend the night in lavish hotel suits, slightly crowded dorms or – if you’re looking for a real personal experience – a couch in someone’s living room. If couch surfing is not your cup of tea, and money is not an issue, why not book the 220 sqm “Imperial Suite” in one of Berlin’s most legendary Hotels: The Hotel Adlon Berlin. (The price per night is available upon request … just in case you were wondering). For any dormitory in between these two categories, take some time to research and you’ll surely find a nice place to recharge your batteries.
What to do in Berlin besides the Fashion Week?
The question should be: What not to do”! Berlin is one gigantic urban adventure park which offers everything for every taste and linking. If you’re into sight-seeing, into clubbing (check out the “Berghain” – the best techno club in the world!), if you’re a passionate foodie, if you enjoy shopping (which is probably the case) or whatever floats your boat – Berlin has it!
The Berlin Fashion Week should be on the bucket list of any fashionista! And if you combine this epic event with an extended holiday in Germany, you are living everything “Fashion’s on Vacation” stands for.
