Berlin Fashion Week Event & Party Guide



Like every season I HEART BERLIN is bringing you the ultimate Berlin Fashion Week Guide with all the notable events and parties with a special focus on emmerging talents and avant-garde designers. The majority of the events in this guide are public or have an open registration so that all of you fashion fans can join regardless of your professional credentials. Enjoy!

This season we would like to give a shout-out to a couple of designers that will be doing their first shows in the official Mercedes-Benz tent, as well as in surprising off-schedule locations. We are looking forward to see our first show of one of our Berlin favorites SADAK, of course the show of our dear friend Esther Perbandt, the man who is probably the buzziest name in the local fashion scene right now and who will be the first one to show inside of Berghain: Bobby Kolade, and we are also excited to see the new collection of Vektor. For all the fashion professionals we recommend all of these mentioned shows, so make sure to get accreditation for them. Our listing of public events you can find below.

For more guidance at Berlin Fashion Week we also recommend you to download our iPhone App Friendly Berlin and check out the routes “Berlin Designers” and “Fashionable Berlin”.

A Christmas & Design Market Guide to Berlin


The holiday season is upon us, and the atmosphere in Berlin couldn’t be more unique and lively this time of year, thanks to the gorgeous Christmas markets sprawled across the city. These markets give our city a distinctive spirit during the holidays, and there’s a lot more to them than Glühwein (not to understate Glühwein though; we seriously wait all year for that stuff). Whether you’re in search of the perfect gift or just want to be a part of the festivities, it goes without saying that Christmas markets are a fundamental part of the German holiday tradition. From one end of Berlin to the other, you will find a profusion of markets in various sizes with varying products. So how do you choose the ones worth visiting? If you’re lucky enough to be in Berlin this time of year, market hopping is a must, so we’re giving you a run down of the top Christmas markets to check out; some classics, some exciting new concepts. Find our selection of Christmas markets and special events after the jump.

Cinéma de Mode at Berlin Alternative Fashion Week


Next week on Wednesday the brand new Berlin Alternative Fashion Week launches its first edition with a colorful program of parties, shows, talks and a designer market. After several years of doing events during the official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin and the German Press Days we were of course excited about another opportunity to get our hands in the pie so we decided to host a new event during this new Fashion Week.

It is something that we meant to do for a long time but never came around to do it: Turn our Cinéma de Mode online column that we featured here on for many years before moving over to our partner Two For Fashion into a live event in a real cinema. So we asked our friends from the Berlin Fashion Film Festival to contribute some films, as well as the designers of the Berlin Alternative Fashion Week and mixed it with our own selection of our favorite films of the new genre and the result is going to be an entertaining program of fashionable short films and videos featuring Hollywood stars such as Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett and Christopher Walken for your viewing pleasure. Together with our friends from Two For Fashion we will invite you into the cinema of the former culturual institute of Czechoslowakia at Leizpziger Str. 60 (entrance Jerusalemer Str.) on Thursday October 2nd at 20h to enjoy our films of the Cinéma de Mode.

To get you into the mood we want to show you today the latest hyped fashion film about the selfie culture by Matthew Frost featuring Kirsten Dunst, as well as Frost’s previous other amazing films after the jump.

Seven Suppers hosted by iHeartBerlin and Qozy

Still right in the middle of our 7 years anniversary specials we have already covered the genres of theater, art, books, film and party with our first 5 of 7 surprises and now it’s time for the next one: We love good food and checking out the latest restaurants, food markets and supper clubs. So it comes as no surprise that we wanted to include this passion in our 7 anniversary specials.

Today we would like to invite you to our I HEART BERLIN headquaters to enjoy with us our special Seven Suppers that we will be hosting with our partner Qozy. From September 28th til October 7th we will be preparing 7 different food events for you, 6 of them are dinners and one of them is a brunch. Together with Qozy we curated 7 original 3-course menues that range from different types of meat, fish, seafood, vegetarian to vegan.

We look forward to get to know some of our readers through this on a more personal level and think this is going to be a great way to get a look into our world aside from fashion shows, parties and exhibition openings. We love to hear your stories and what better way to exchange them than over a nice meal.

After the jump you will get a preview of some of the menues we will be offering and learn more about the dates and how to book a table.

Win Tickets for the Rooftop Festival by


Mighty Oaks

You probably figured out already by giving a look to our event guide that we are in the middle of  Berlin Music Week. Until Sunday a great amount of concerts, festival and events are going on all around music of all kinds. We have mentioned Berlin Festival a couple of times this year. Also lovely, intimate and recommendable if you are into Scandinavian music is the Our/Berlin Festival.  But today we would love to get your attention on another pretty nice festival happening open air on a roof over Berlin this upcoming Sunday.

Auf den Dächern Festival is an initiative of the online music channel Apart from their role of being one of the companies to kick off the digital start-up hype in Berlin they have become organizers of a couple of really nice music events. Their event series Auf den Dächern (on the rooftops) is one of my favourite since the amazing concert of Florence and the Machine I saw on the rooftop of former Kater Holzig.

Now we would like to give you the chance to have a similar unique experience. More after the jump.

Everybody Loves a Winner

favorites film festival

The film festival circuit is a strange one. Some winning films of festivals get great attention once they are released cinematically, but some winners are celebrated one night and then disappear somewhere into the wide world of agents and negotiations. The Favourites Film Festival shows films from around the Globe that have won audience awards. The selection of short and feature films this year includes winners from Mexico, Afghanistan, Senegal, Germany and plenty of other countries. Each film is a unique star in the solar system of film art and luckily you can fly to unknown ones without risking a false start. Certainly a winner is not instantly a winner for everyone, but audience awards are usually a pretty great indication that most people will enjoy the cinematic experience.
