The next round of Berlin fashion and trade shows is just around the corner. Some formats that debuted in January will run for the second time. By contrast, for the last time green trade fair duo Greenshowroom and Ethical Fashion Show will be held under their current names before they will merge under the name Neonyt after the end of the summer. For the first time the fashion show “Greenshowroom Selected” will be held under the umbrella of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the E-Werk. Furthermore, Selvedge Run moves to its new location at Palais am Funkturm and the Premium Group and Messe Frankfurt will intensify their successful cooperation in January with their coferences #FashionTech and #FashionSustain. Whilst the winter edition already focused on a simplified access and efficient stay at the trade shows, this season the Premium Group offers a “All-in-One” ticket, which grants access to Seek, Bright, Show & Order x Premium and the #FashionTech Berlin conference. And after the debut in January green show format Xoom by Innatex will again be part of Panorama show.
