15 WONDERS – THE FASHION REVOLUTION FROM FINLAND
The issue of sustainable development is currently shaking up the international fashion world. The overproduction of textiles, the huge amounts of waste and challenges in the production of materials are significant problems of our time.
In the international fashion industry, Finland is considered a pioneer for material solutions of the future: In Finland, various ecological materials have been developed to replace resource-intensive materials such as cotton and to respond to the global problem of textile waste. The discussion focuses on new technologies that enable the production of textile fibres from agricultural waste, wood or textile waste without harmful chemicals and with low water consumption.
Thanks to a fashion design teaching programme at Aalto University and a number of award-winning young designers, Finland has made an international name for itself in the field of fashion design. At the university, design students experiment a lot with materials, create new materials and develop innovative combinations from recycled materials.
The exhibition "15 WONDERS - The Fashion Revolution from Finland" presents material research by Aalto University students and new ecological material innovations in 15 outfits.
The spatial design of the exhibition was realised in collaboration with Tauko Design using upcycled hotel textiles such as pillowcases as well as banners from construction sites and discarded cords from Finnish army stocks.

Aurelia Paumelle - Sweater Workshop
Aurelia Paumelle offers a sweater workshop whose concept is based on conscious consumption and recycling of old clothes.
Schliemannstraße 14A, 10437 Berlin, Germany
07. 09.- 10.09.2021
The concept of Aurelia Paumelle is based on the conscious consumption and recycling of old clothes. In an upcycling workshop, participants can create a new piece from an old sweater and then personalise it. In order for the garment to fit perfectly, the participants will have at their disposal a set of clothes that have been made by the designer herself. The workshop is then conducted under her guidance and with the help of professional tools and sewing machines. The entire process of making a garment can be experienced, raising awareness of slow fashion and upcycling old clothes.

Talbot Runhof - Store Event
During a store event in their Berlin boutique, Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof will not only present their latest creations, the launch of the new TALBOT RUNHOF Perfume Collection is also planned as a further element of establishing themselves as an internationally important fashion and lifestyle label "Made in Germany". In addition to a model presentation and a tasting of the five new fragrances, there will be a "Dead Stock" installation as a contribution to the sustainability debate to draw attention to one of the biggest sustainability problems in the fashion industry: Surplus goods and fabrics that are no longer needed in production and by fabric suppliers, but have already consumed valuable energy in their manufacture.
The two designers deliberately searched for "forgotten" fabrics and materials, dead stock so to speak, to show that in a creative process something new and innovative can be created from old, discarded materials. The result is a small capsule with new models - skirts, dresses and jumpsuits - which we will show in Berlin.
By invitation only.
