About us

Since 2007, Berlin Fashion Week has been one of the most important fashion weeks in Europe. Numerous top-class runway shows, installations, trade fairs, conferences and panels, exhibitions and side events for trade visitors as well as fashion-interested consumers make the German capital a trend-setting hotspot for the national and international creative scene and underline the city's cross-disciplinary significance as the European Capital of Creative Industries. One of the core themes of Berlin Fashion Week is the consistent promotion of national design excellence and emerging newcomer brands. The focus is on sustainability, inclusion and innovation, implemented through exceptional fashion, in design, production and presentation.

Berlin Fashion Week is organized and hosted by the Berlin Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Labor. The next Berlin Fashion Week will take place from July 10 to 15, 2023
