Unique and excellent craftsmanship from Germany was once again the focus of “Der Berliner Salon”. The impressive rooms of the Kronprinzenpalais served as the exhibition platform for a total of 39 participants this season. 

Among them is the Ukrainian newcomer label PLNGNS, which demonstrates how innovative and contemporary the use of re- and upcycled materials can be. Another example is HAP Ceramics, the young brand based in Düsseldorf by Maxi Hoffmann, which showcased its artistic ceramic creations. In addition to fashion and interior designers, emerging beauty brands with exceptional concepts were once again part of the Berliner Salon. One such example is Lacueor, a young clean beauty brand that aims not only to address skin imperfections but also to harmonize body and mind sustainably, thanks to organic, active ingredients, without harming humans, animals or the environment.

The curation of this year's participants by Christiane Arp, Chairwoman of the Fashion Council Germany, in collaboration with Markus Kurz, Managing Director of Nowadays, was compiled with a focus on sustainability and the support concept of The Berliner Salon, representing a diverse mix of young aspiring designers. 

"It's incredibly enjoyable to set up the salon every season anew. "It's incredibly fun to set up the salon every season anew. When we launched the event 18 years ago, there wasn't yet the stage for the designers that fashion needs to communicate itself. We are delighted that Berlin and the BFW now offer so many stages." - Christiane Arp, Chairwoman of the Fashion Council Germany.

"Der Berliner Salon stands as a long-term platform, like no other format, for industry exchange, thereby making a statement for the fashion location Germany. We are pleased to be represented again this season with the group exhibition within the Berlin Fashion Week," says Marcus Kurz, CEO of Nowadays.

This season, Der Berliner Salon is expanded with an exhibition concept: In addition to the group exhibition at the Kronprinzenpalais, the unique designs by designer Karen Jessen will be showcased in collaboration with and at the Feuerle Collection. The exhibition, curated by Desirée Feuerle in collaboration with the Fashion Council Germany and Nowadays, will be on display on February 7 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM.
