Green fashion will once again be part of the Berlin Fashion Week when the 3rd Ethical Fashion Show Berlin provides an authentic and attention-grabbing platform for eco and fair trade fashions in Germany. At the highly successful ‘ewerk’ event centre, international labels from the streetwear and casualwear segments will present their collections – covering the spectrum of green, fair, urban and modern fashions – for the autumn and winter of 2013 / 14 to trade visitors and representatives of the press from 15 to 17 January.
“Thanks to high level of demand, the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin will fully occupy both halls of the ‘ewerk’ for the first time in January and be an event for the trade only. We firmly believe we are on the right track with the fair and that this subject has a great potential for the future”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies of Messe Frankfurt.
A sustainable lifestyle in demand Together with the GREENshowroom, the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin pursues a visionary concept by focusing on the connection between streetwear, casualwear and sustainability. It covers the complete spectrum of eco-fair and urban fashions – from men’s and women’s outerwear to shoes, accessories and underwear – and thus perfectly complements the high-fashion oriented GREENshowroom, which is held concurrently in Hotel Adlon Kempinski.
In this respect, it is very important that ecology and ethics are regarded as a matter of course and that no compromises are made in terms of design. “Our concept involves a careful and responsible selection of exhibitors and their products because this is the only way we can be sure of meeting our visitors’ expectations for sustainable fashions characterised by high design quality”, explains Schmidt.
Knowledge Lounge: talk with experts
Besides the classic exhibition, the Knowledge Lounge has proven to be an outstanding pool of information. Next January, therefore, all trade visitors will not only have the opportunity to find out about sustainably-made apparel but also to meet and exchange information with experts from different organisations about the ethical and ecological aspects of fashion.
The face of Notic Nastic
The key visual for the coming Ethical Fashion Show Berlin shows the face of Notic Nastic’s charismatic singer. Their enthusiasm for ecological trade and sustainable fashions mean the Berlin and New York based musicians are ideal ambassadors for the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin.
