Join our version of Berlin Fashion Week
We start July with a new collection and OUR OWN Berlin FASHION WEEk event!
In July Berlin goes fashion, then from 11 to 15 of July Berlin Fashion week is happening. And we are part of it wether they want it or not!
Or better said... we are creating our own version of Fashion Week. And you are invited!
But first things first.
Did you check our new collection JEANS ADDICTION? If not, do it now!
This collection is mainly made up of unique pieces that required long hours of artisan work. we have also created small series of dresses, tops and corsets.
Asymmetrical Mesh dresses made with scraps of elastic fabrics that we have been collecting are added as an extra in a different material to the collection.
OUR BERLIN FASHION WEEK EVENT
we are creating our own version of Fashion Week in our studio and in the public space.
Why are we hosting this event?
The reality is, although we have legally registered businesses and pay our rent, we lack a dedicated physical space for hosting events. hosting events and other activities is essential for to attract new audiences, foster connections, generate synergies, and support our livelihoods.
So we went knocking on doors in our neighborhood. The wonderful Späti Netpoint Spätimarkt across the street (also from immigrats like us) generously offered us a portion of their outdoor space, complete with tables and chairs, to hold the second half of our event.
Come and witness the power of community coming together!
Through this event, we aim to spark conversations on various issues.
First and foremost, we want to encourage a rethinking of our consumption and disposal habits when it comes to clothing. Abandoned clothes cluttering our neighborhood streets present an urban problem that upcycling offers affordable and creative solutions for. Join us to discover the magic of reusing!
Secondly, we strive to shed light on the challenges faced by Berlin's artists and creatives when it comes to workspace. We are the backbone of Berlin's creative scene. This is actually the most recognized aspect of Berlin and the one that attracts tourists and investors. But without space, we can't do what we do. Are art and creative professions less important than others?
Lastly, we want to share our stories as women, migrants, and entrepreneurs. Working independently in a creative field is an unpredictable adventure, and the journey becomes even more challenging as female migrants. We have had to start from scratch, often facing bureaucratic hurdles that take three times as long to navigate as it does for locals, even if we can speak German.
Who are WE?
Let's come together, get to know one another, offer each other support, collaborate, and break barriers. Let's recycle more and reshape our future, together.
