Positive atmosphere, international appeal, visitors in their droves. The fact that sustainability and responsible innovations are contemporary, relevant topics was demonstrated by the huge success of the two sustainable fashion fairs Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and Greenshowroom, as well as the FashionSustain conference platform. Tradeshows, showcases, conferences and workshops brought together numerous fashion labels, buyers, designers, influencers and innovators under one roof.
“Creative, innovative, inspiring – our discussions with exhibitors, conference participants, speakers and visitors confirmed that we are on the right track with the development of our events at the ‘Kraftwerk’ event centre. From the fashion fair, via the conferences, to the showcases and side events of our partners, we have brought the formats at the event centre even closer together – a perfect start into the future under the new name Neonyt,” said Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles and Textiles Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director of Neonyt, added: “We are also very pleased that we were able to continue the successful collaboration with the Premium Group for our two conferences, FashionSustain and Fashiontech – an important module for transforming the ‘Kraftwerk’ event centre into a venue where the future of fashion is tangible during Berlin Fashion Week.”
While at the two fairs 140 national and international labels from 24 countries showcased sustainable and progressive street, casual and urbanwear for spring and summer 2019, FashionSustain discussed the future of fashion and was a meeting place for relevant decision-makers from the industry. Under the title “Jump into the future!”, the conference put the spotlight on shoes, sneakers, leather and leather production.
This was the last time that Greenshowroom and Ethical Fashion Show Berlin were held under their old names. From now on, the two sustainable fashion fairs will run under the new name Neonyt. Together with the FashionSustain conference, the #Fashiontech conference organised by the Premium Group and other events and showcases, Neonyt will become the global hub for future-oriented fashion and sustainable innovations from the next winter edition of Berlin Fashion Week from 15-17 January 2019.
