After welcoming Hendrik Schimmel as German Country Manager in March, Freeman T. Porter opened a showroom in Berlin this month during the city’s Fashion Week with hopes of further strengthening its position in the German market. On a total space of 300 sqm, the showroom will also operate as headquarters of the German-speaking market including Austria and Switzerland. Future plans include two showrooms in Munich and Düsseldorf as well as temporary units in Frankfurt, Vienna and Salzburg. Schimmel stated, “I am very excited to see the development of the brand so far in France. This is a great challenge and I am looking forward to rebuild a new successful structure within the German, Austrian and Swiss markets.”
