While many of the Fashion Week booths are still being installed, the platform for bodywear, 5 Elements, will have already opened – two days before the official start of the week; running from January 16-18. Fair manager Andrew Lookman explains the reason for this decision: “As a leading fair for lingerie and swimwear fashion, we have to consider the smaller stores, too. For them, Sunday is the best day to visit the fair.” The fair will be held for the first time in the Kabelwerke Berlin. More than 100 exhibitors will present as many as 200 brands and collections at the new premises, including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Bruno Banani and Skiny. True to the motto “in bed with...”, beds and innovative lounges are among the new design elements at the fair.
