Berlin Showroom as a part of the DACH showroom

As in previous years, the Berlin Showroom will again take place in Paris in 2021 together with Mode Suisse (Switzerland) and the Austrian Fashion Association (Austria) as a joint DACH showroom. 

New concept secures international order business

Due to the challenging circumstances prevailing at the moment, the Berlin Showroom is coming up with a completely new concept: 
In addition to the new online showroom, where the new collections will be presented from January, it will also be possible to present in five different cities. The aim is to meet local buyers who will most likely not be able to travel in the coming AW 21/22 season. Last season, the Austrian Fashion Association had a quite successful showroom in Vienna, where it encountered much more openness from local buyers than before due to the current situation. Based on this positive experience, smaller, decentralised showrooms will be offered in the following five cities this season. All dates to be confirmed.

  • Berlin - second week of February
  • Vienna - 23rd - 25th February
  • Paris - 05th - 08th March
  • Zurich - 15th March 
  • Tokyo - 21st - 28th March
