Fair Fashion Guide: Berlin Fashion Week 2016.

Sustainable Fashion at Berlin Fashion Week – Fall/Winter 2016 | WHAT PIXIES WEAR – Fashion Blog

Only a few days until it’s on again – Berlin Fashion Week. In the past years, I have always wanted to be seen at as many events as possible and tried to get invited to every show… but since moving on to sustainable and fair fashion, I only attend a few chosen events. Makes the whole event less stressful und really, really interesting! In case you haven’t planned anything or have still free slots next week, I have put together a short guide of the must-see conscious fashion events at Berlin Fashion Week 2016. For some of them, there are still free tickets available, so don’t waste time and get planning!

GreenShowRoom

Postbahnhof Berlin | January 19th – 21st, 2016

The GreenShowRoom was already one of my favourite events last year. Together with its more commercial sister event, the Ethical Fashion Show, this eco fashion showroom shows a curated collection of 39 sustainable high fashion designers. The event is accompanied by talks, discussions and a fashion show (invite only).

Ethical Fashion Show

Postbahnhof Berlin | January 19th – 21st, 2016

In the same venue as the GreenShowRoom, the Ethical Fashion Show completes this fair fashion exhibition in terms of sustainable street wear and casual labels. More than 100 fashion brands are showing their fall/winter 2016 collections there along with interesting lectures and panel discussions.

Good to know: If you already have a ticket for PREMIUM or SEEK, you can attend both the Ethical Fashion Show and GreenShowRoom with it.

FashionTech

Kühlhaus – PREMIUM Berlin | January 20th, 2016

Basically, FashionTech Berlin is not about sustainability and fair fashion. But it’s about the future of fashion and we all know that fair and sustainable is absolutely where fashion needs to head in the near future if we don’t want to destroy our wonderful planet completely. This exciting conference took place for the first time in 2015 and has already become a seasonal fixture at Berlin Fashion Week. The broad subjects speakers will talk about are ‘E-Commerce & The Future of Retail’, ‘Wearables & Design’ and ‘Digital Marketing & Communication’. There will be so many interesting talks, I don’t even know where to start – so please go ahead and check out the full timetable if you want to no more. (I am going to say this: Yvan Rodic will speak!)

Lavera Showfloor + Green Fashion Award

ewerk Berlin | January 21st, 2016

This one has already been on my schedule since my first Fashion Week everLavera Showfloor is the place to be if you want to check out young and exciting eco-conscious designers from all around the globe. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it this year, but you can still sign up for the shows and the Lavera Green Fashion Award which will be awarded to the most promising fair fashion talent.

Now there’s only one question (and the most important one!) left: What do you have planned for Berlin Fashion Week this season? What are you excited for and what will be your highlights?
