Berlin – a follower of fashion or the new fashion mecca?
During Berlin's annual Fashion Weeks the city proves that it can hold its own among the international fashion metropolises, as well as build on its own roots. It was in Berlin that off-the-rack clothing was invented at the end of the 19th century. Indeed, Berlin has much more to offer than Paris, Milan or London. It didn't just host fashion conventions and professional shows by Hugo, Vivienne Westwood, Strenesse Blue and Michalsky – the streets themselves come to life with fashion as well. It is the mix of renowned brands and young, creative labels that makes Berlin's fashion scene so unique.
