MALAIKARAISS

A diverse cast representing all women was particularly important for Malaika Raiss, winner of Berlin Contemporary. Thus, artists or PR agents also presented her collection. „A model must captivate me with her charisma as soon as she enters the room,“ explains Raiss. Read more

    „Berlin is my creative melting pot, where all the inspiration I gather along my travel is finally coming together. The city in all its beauty but also roughness is my favorite combination, you know – opposites attract.“

MARKE

Mario Keine, founder and designer of MARKE, presented his collection titled „Allezeit bei mir“ at Pressecafé in the NEWEST Showspace. The inspiration behind it was the notion that every moment is like a little talisman, forming a collection of silent memories over time. After closely examining his own handwriting last season, Keine now continues the cycle of reflection by paying homage to the people and moments that have influenced him through a visual tribute. Read more

„Throughout the past year and especially this season, I have witnessed how cooperation has become the norm. Despite international competition, there is a sense that significant issues such as inclusion and sustainability can only be addressed through collective efforts, mutual support, and solidarity.“  

Mario Keine, MARKE

BACK2BACK

Yolanda Zobel and Marcelo Alcaide presented their collection for their label back2back also as part of the new showcase format Intervention.

The designs of the current collection are characterized by unusual shapes that are not constrained by fixed rules. Read more
