Water and desert. Prosperity and poverty. Technology and nature. On his travels, the modern nomad moves between the worlds and climatic extremes. The environment is his constant companion. Sometimes unspoiled in its breathtaking beauty, sometimes threatened by human intervention. Contrasts are merging together in the AW19/20 collections by the Neonyt Trade Fair’s exhibitors. Waste is being turned into fashion, fashion is being turned into added value. New technologies are paving the way for sustainable innovations, such as revolutionary recycling methods in keeping with the slogan “Trash is the good news”. People’s emotional bond with the ocean plays a central role in the collections. High-tech fabrics made of recycled fishing nets are a nod to the ambivalent use of water as a resource. Even the colour schemes are contrasting. Sand, earthenware, clay – earthy tones are forming the basis of the autumn/winter collections. Mustard-yellow tones, dark mocha and rich Bordeaux are adding warm highlights while ink blue from the seabed is adding depth. Mindfulness without sacrifice – the sustainable fashion brands exhibiting at Neonyt during Berlin Fashion Week are showing just how innovative sustainable fashion is looking in the here and now.
Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation (from 15-17 January 2019), is made up of the Neonyt Trade Fair, the conferences Fashionsustain by Messe Frankfurt and #Fashiontech by Premium Group as well as the design-thinking format Thinkathon, the Neonyt Fashion Show, showcases, the influencer and blogger event Prepeek, networking events and last but not least, the Neonyt Party. The hub is taking over from the former trade fair duo Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and Greenshowroom. The organiser of Neonyt is Messe Frankfurt, which, hosting around 50 textile fairs in Europe, Asia, Africa and America, is the global market leader for textile industry trade fairs.
