Guide: Fair Fashion in Berlin

– Supported by the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development –

Fair Fashion is something we like to think doesn’t have to be explained anymore. We all know that the main high and fast fashion brands’ production systems do tremendous, often irretrievable harm to the environment, and are based on the abuse and exploitation of workers in the producing countries, don’t we? However, was that on your mind when you paid a very low price for fast fashion items on your last shopping spree? Probably – maybe even understandably – not. Raising awareness for the plights of the majority of seamstresses working in unbearable conditions to create the trendy garments we all like to show-off on the streets is what a new campaign of the German federal ministry for economic cooperation and development is all about: the story of Vero & Selvie puts one of the workers in the spotlight, and her portrait on the t-shirt I’m wearing on the above photo.

Guide: Ten Great Christmas Gifts From Berlin

Tis’ the season! Let’s go gift shopping! Bring your loved ones something special from the city we all love the most. But instead of going for a stupid candle in the shape of the Fernsehturm or a useless breakfast plate with an image of Siegessäule warped by an insane filter, how about shopping your gifts at local store? Here, I’ve listed ten amazing gifts all made by inspiring, small scale, Berlin based businesses!

Shop in Berlin: Bikini Berlin

Sponsored by Bikini Berlin

Berlin is a grand city, but rarely looks like one, admittedly. While I mostly love its small town appeal, sometimes one needs to actually see and feel the attraction of a metropolis. I’m thinking about a backdrop of actually high buildings, a mix of shops and cafés and maybe the view on a zoo, preferably the “monkey hill”. Wait what? Yep, entirely possible at Bikini Berlin.

Shop in Berlin: Ace & Tate

Choosing glasses is not an easy task, especially not if every frame you like might hold a price tag way over your budget and you haven’t even thought about the cost of the lenses. There’s a solution for bespectacled shoppers, who have a hard time deciding: Ace & Tate with their online shop and their flagship store in Berlin Mitte (amongst other locations such as Amsterdam and Munich) offers you all the service you could want. From eye tests in the store, home try-on kits to take all the time you need, to a service that cuts your lenses in 30mins in store!

The art of gift giving is beautiful – if it’s done right, it’s a pleasure for the receiver, and a support for the community.

Stil in Berlin’s gift guide wants to lead you to small businesses in our lovely city, and while we already recommended shops to buy food gifts and places to get interior items, this time we’re catering to the lovers of all things beautiful, may it be clothing, accessories or beauty products.
