The German capital is known for its effortless style and fashion-forward appeal. Berlin Fashion Week is the biannual event that shows off the best designers from the city and across the globe. For the city’s fashionistas, the week is a chaotic yet amazing time, filled with runway shows and fashion-centric events. But beyond the scheduled events, here are the best things to do during Fashion Week.
Catch the best street style
Some of the best fashion during Fashion Week isn’t on the runways, and in a city known for its distinctive style, you can be sure to find some of the best inspiration on the streets. With shows and events dotted around the city, you can also follow fashion bloggers to stay up to date with the latest trends or keep an eye out during your morning commute to catch the hottest looks of the season.
Try and spot some celebrities
Get your morning coffee with the fashion glitterati
St Oberholz in Mitte is usually a haven for tech-heads and startups, but during Fashion Week this Mitte cafe becomes the place to grab your morning coffee. Rub shoulders with Berlin’s fabulous fashion-lovers and spend get your morning caffeine fix before the glitzy day ahead.
Shop the latest looks
During Fashion Week, Premium Exhibitions puts on a huge international trade show, a must-have ticket of the season for those in the industry. However, less business-oriented fashion enthusiasts can head over to Berlin’s shopping districts, Charlottenburg and Mitte, to shop until they drop.
Cocktails on Torstraße
After a busy day of soaking in the latest trends, Berlin’s fashion crowd rest their heel-clad feet at the Torstraße hotspot, Neue Odessa. Whether you’ve been taking in the shows with them or not, it’s the perfect place to spend an evening during Fashion Week. You can sip cocktails with the city’s über-chic crowd and soak in the week’s avant-garde atmosphere.
Use it as an excuse to rock your best threads
During Berlin Fashion Week the city becomes awash with bold prints, luxury coats and fancy garments. Berlin gets just a little bit more fabulous and it’s a chance to dig deep into your wardrobe and rock your best, fanciest threads for a week.
Finish the week in style
As Fashion Week comes to an end, official and unofficial closing parties are dotted around the city. So, like a true Berliner, end the week of fabulous fashion culture in style by hitting up some of the city’s best bars and clubs.
