In January 2020, 60 young graduates from nine German fashion universities presented their final collections at Neo.Fashion. 2020!
Only four years old, Neo.Fashion., is already gaining the reputation as a launching pad for new talents. It offers a growing network for all participants – the creatives, the consumers, the universities and graduates, businesses, the government and the press.
Neo.Fashion. 2020 started with a record turn out into the new decade. Almost 2,000 guests of experienced an impressive evening in Vienna House Andel’s Berlin. The Best Graduates’ Show was the kickoff to a new decade.
The unique event format of Neo.Fashion. started the Berlin Fashion Week 2020 and supports the role of Berlin as fashion capital. For the first time Neo.Fashion. showed three different Graduate Shows and is therefore the largest Graduate Fashion event in Germany.
With every fashion show three German universities with their best graduates were shown. Everyone visiting all three shows could see final collections from 75 graduates from eight German universities.
The first show at 5 pm was presented by Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Westsächsischen Hochschule Zwickau – University of Applied Sciences and University Hannover.
The second show at 7pm was presented by the University of The Arts University Reutlingen, and University of Applied Sciences Berlin. The third show started 9 pm with the final collections of University of Bielefeld, Lette Association Berlin and Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle.
Almost 2.000 guests – among them a number of representatives of press and industry – experienced in the course of the three Best Graduates’ Shows fashion in its original form – diverse, innovative, creative and sensational.
A trend can we found in the fashion of the young designer. The graduates dealt with social relevant topics, e.g. roles of sexes, digitalization as well as environment protection and players of the future.
With their design they contribute to a sustainable future – not only in the fashion industry – and confirm the slogan of Neo.Fashion. #fashionforfuture
It wasn’t the impressive extent of Neo.Fashion. events that was new but also the previous PolitFashion‘– New Year reception by the Confederation of The German Textile & Fashion Industry at Vienna House Andel’s Berlin. Representatives of politics and industry met before the shows to discuss and exchange about the potential of the creative young talents and the textile tendency innovation, technology and sustainability.
The history of Neo.Fashion. is very short but very successful: the premiere event was in 2017 in cooperation with the University of Applied Science Berlin. In January 2019 it was four Universities participating and, in this year, already eight participating Universities that noticed the advantages of this format as stage for targeted promotion of young adults. The story of success continues…
