From 15 to 18 January, Berlin Fashion Week 2019 will present the latest collections of renowned designers and labels in the German capital.
The metropolis on the Spree is just as much of an attraction for shopping enthusiasts as it is for lovers of culture and history and diehard partygoers. Twice a year, the capital even becomes the outright German fashion hotspot: during the Berlin Fashion Week 2019 in January, famous models and designers will once again meet to present the collections for the coming season. Even if you are not on the guest list for one of the fashion fairs, a visit to Berlin during this event is worthwhile, since parties, fashion shows and other events throughout the city accompany this highlight in Berlin’s calendar of events.
Berlin in fashion fever
Like every year, big players from the design mainstream will be using Berlin Fashion Week 2019 to present their latest collections. The fashion fairs regularly attract a lot of celebrities. The catwalk events at the E-Werk in Mitte, now known as the MBFW, are particularly special. If you're a big fashion fan, you can catch a glimpse of your favourite designer or model as they arrive. A really extraordinary draw, however, is that all shows on the forecourt are streamed live on multiple screens. If you prefer to dive straight into the fashion hustle and bustle yourself – no problem, because Berlin has a lot to offer all fashion enthusiasts, also away from such exclusive events. This might even be the much more exciting programme, because the focus is clearly on young Berlin fashion, which is widely regarded as being particularly innovative. Accordingly, quite a few fashion designers have gained international renown through Berlin Fashion Week. Get inspiration for your next outfits from street and urban wear as well as eco fashion!
Events for all fashion enthusiasts
The venues may be spread all over the city, but that shouldn't stop you from visiting everything you want. With the Berlin CityTourCard, you can enjoy unlimited and free-of-charge use of public transport. You can simply purchase this lowest-priced tourist ticket to match the duration of your stay – from 48 hours to 6 days. And if you're intending to explore the city, make sure to pay a visit to some of the discount partners like the Berlin Dungeon or the DDR Museum. And then it's back to fashion – how about the Designer Sample Sale in the Charisschwarz Galerie, for example? Local and international designers empty their warehouses for this occasion and offer exceptional individual pieces at reduced prices. If you decide to go on a shopping spree afterwards, then simply have a wander through one of Berlin's numerous malls: whether in Alexa, the Mall of Berlin or the new East Side Mall – you're sure to find what you're looking for here. If you are looking for trendy Berlin designers in particular, then Bikini Berlin is always a good place to go. Just a short walk away, the Ku'damm lures you in with its stores from classy brands such as Gucci, for example.
Immerse yourself even further into fashion
If you still want more after the events of the Berlin Fashion Week 2019 and the various shopping adventures, then why not head off for the Berlin museum world. A number of intriguing special exhibitions will be taking place at the same time as the fashion fair. Travel with your low-priced tourist ticket to Dahlem, for example, and see the special show “100 percent wool” in the Museum of European Cultures. The Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative Arts), by contrast, is putting on a superb costume jewellery exhibition until the end of January, starting with the 1930s: “Bijoux Bijoux! Costume jewellery from Chanel to Dior”. In the museum's permanent exhibition, you will be amazed by a show with 130 outfits, which looks like a walk through the history of fashion.
