It’s Fashion Week, y’all! Have you even noticed? Seems like the presence of the most fashionable of the weeks dwindled over the past seasons, with lesser and lesser internationally (or even nationally) acclaimed big houses presenting their newest looks in the capital. But whatever, I was always in to support the locals anyway, pushing them to stardom! Or at least into your wardrobe, because fashion can be as beautiful as it wants, it needs to be bought to shine. And thus I am presenting you the much awaited update of the very important guide to shop Berlin designers in Berlin. It is not as simple as one thinks, albeit Kadewe is putting up a big show for the summer, and more and more labels are opening their own stores. Refer to this list when your shopping trip needs a lot more shop-local-attitude and invest in products directly from your neighborhood:
