Berlin is synonymous of art and design; it is something cultural that comes from its seething history and its diversity.

The German capital is growing very quickly in many activities, and Fashion is one of them. There are uncountable options for shopping in Berlin, small shops like Voo or Soto, big shopping malls like Kadewe or Galleries Lafayette and, as the European city of Startups, also online fashion business with their outlets like Zalando.

With more and more young creatives drawn to Berlin’s cheap rents, easy-going lifestyle and thriving creative scene, there are already many small and big fashion events, stores, markets, courses and many opportunities for those who enjoy Fashion, professionally or personally.

Here there is a list of interesting stuff about Fashion in Berlin.
