It was about time: Berlin is getting an alternative fashion event for the official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The first edition of the Berlin Alternative Fashion Week is happening in the first week of October 2014 and will include an array of events on several days such as fashion presentations, a designer market, TEDx talks and fashion parties. The fashion that is being showcased and sold here is quite different from what we are used to from the official Berlin Fashion Week that usually happens in January and July each year. The organizers of the event describe it as alternative while I like to call it avant-garde, progressive and artistic. One of our favorite carzy Berlin designers is going to be part of the show: Tata Christiane, as well as a couple of really excentric international designers and Berlin newcomer Alles. So far only 8 of the participating designers have been revealed on the brand new website with more to come in the following weeks. To celebrate the start of a new platform for Berlin’s creative fashion scene the makers are throwing a big launch party this Friday at Urban Spree. Come by get a taste of what’s to come in October. Get a preview of the first announced designers after the jump.
