From a U-Bahn station to the world’s spotlight: Preview of Berlin Fashion Week 2018

 

 

Berlin Fashion Week is coming up at the beginning of July and the world’s fashion spotlight will be on Berlin’s local designers, sustainable fashion and fashion tech.

We spoke to Anita Tillmann, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Premium Group, about humble beginnings 15 years ago in an abandoned U-Bahn tunnel and the future of fashion in Berlin.

Over the past 15 years, the fashion scene has evolved in Berlin, and today is compared to the fashion capitals Milan and Paris. Tillmann believes that every season is “getting…a little bit more successful.”

Berlin Fashion Week runs from July 3-7
