Berlin positively bounced back for spring 2009 with an upbeat round of runway and trade fair activity during fashion week here.
Under the umbrella of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, the 24 runway shows from July 17 to 20, both off- and on-site, presented a lively spectrum of contemporary fashion from German and international designers. The same can be said of Premium, whose 450 exhibitors attracted 15,372 visitors, slightly down from last season’s 16,354. Numerous satellite happenings and parties around town underscored Berlin’s edgy attraction, while the first Elle Fashion Star awards at a star-studded event illustrated the capital’s growing glamour potential.
