If your closet is aching for additions and your feet itchy from a long week, Berlin Dress 0.1 at Platoon Kunsthalle will certainly provide! The two day long premiere event running from August 31st to September 1st is brought to you by BERLINPIECES – creators of Wedding Dress – and will feature over 50 select Berlin designers, an array of fashion happenings, ear tingling music, tasty drinks and edibles.
But Berlin Dress is going beyond being just a market or a party. The festival aims at building a community of diverse and tasteful designers including Tata Christiane, Vava Dudu, Sopopular, Aurelia Paumelle and many more, showcasing Berlin fashion culture from its most sophisticated to its everyday. It is a celebration of a core Berlin industry that is constantly shaping the city’s identity. This is only the beginning as Berlin Dress expands throughout other German cities, takes part biannually in Berlin’s Fashion Week, and debuts an online presence in January 2014.
Both days of Berlin Dress 0.1 are filled with a program of short films, the performative art of Quincy Junor & Leah King vogueing, live and DJ music presented by Your Mom’s Agency including acts by Mandel Turner, Elbee Bad, Moon&Mann, Andreas Krach, Plateau Repas, Hanin Elias, Aniaetleprogrammeur and Mieko Suzuki.
Doors for Berlin Dress 0.1 will be open Saturday, 1pm to 10pm, and Sunday 1pm to 8pm. Come explore Platoon Kunsthalle’s 33 containers, the factory, and 4.000 m2 of open space which will be bursting with some of Berlin’s best!
