‘Glühofenhalle’@PLATFORM FASHION

Which key looks are defining the new season? What must-have pieces should I be including in my order? And how is colour bringing a new dynamic to the collections? As a fashion journalist and trend consultant, Karolina Landowski has been writing and speaking about fashion trends for twelve years now. In her TRENDVIEW presentation at Gallery, she will be summarising the most important ladies’ and menswear looks for the spring/summer 2019 ordering season together with Igedo Fashion Director Alexander Radermacher.


Panel discussion: „MUT und LUST auf NEUES“ (“Ready for something new”)
with Anja Gockel – Maximilian Seitz – Doris Hartwich – Tyrown Vincent und Sophia Schneider-Esleben
‘Alte Schmiedehallen’, Pumpenraum

German retailers are acting too cautiously, retail is crying out for reinvention. As a fashion country, Germany needs new labels and more willingness to embrace innovation. Anja Gockel, the network’s new design ambassador and member of the EFC, European Fashion Council, together with Doris Hartwich, Designer of the Year 2018, will be delving into this topic in a panel discussion. The two designers will be reporting on their experiences so far in the fashion business, as well as their future plans. Afterwards, they will be available for interviews with the press.

6:00 pm – Industry get-together

Outdoor grounds between the ‘Alte Schmiedehallen’ and the ‘Alte Kesselhaus’

Networking, exchanging opinions, brainstorming – on the second evening of the tradeshow, the fashion community will be getting together for a relaxed get-together al fresco.
