Berlin Fashion Week AW19: The Sustainable Selection

Our comprehensive guide to all things Sustainability, Tech and Innovation at Berlin Fashion Week AW19



Tuesday 15th – Thursday 17th January 2019

Kraftwerk Berlin, Köpenicker Straße 70, 10179 Berlin

Fresh for 2019, Kraftwerk Berlin will be transformed into the NEONYT hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation. Here you will find the Neonyt trade fair (formerly the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and the Greenshowroom), the #Fashiontech and Fashionsustain – as well as the UNLOCK Style by ZEITmagazin – conferences, various showcases, screenings and events.



The portmanteau, Neonyt, brings the Greek neo (new, revolutionary) with the Swedish nytt (new) to articulate the paradigm shift the fashion industry is currently undergoing.

Access to Neonyt is free however tickets will need to be purchased to attend the conferences – read on for all the details and links you need!
