MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK RUSSIA IS TAKING PLACE ONLINE THIS WEEKEND

Russian Fashion Council with support of Fashion Fund has announced the dates of the virtual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. On April 4 and 5, both emerging and established designers will present their new collections. For the first time ever, the event will be totally digital. This solution was developed to support designers and fashion houses in a time of pandemic. For two days, Moscow and Russian brands will deliver their video presentations, custom made for MBFW Russia, at the online platform AIZEL.RU and MEGOGO, the major media service. Some pieces from the new collections will be offered for sale in the nearest future.

“We encourage you to support Russian designers not only with our traditional #MBFWRussia tag, but to use #stayhome and #stayhomeinfashion tags, too. Visit designers’ presentations from home, get ready, choose a look for a show or a street/home style one, post your picture, share and like it – all of these will support our talents under the current circumstances,” suggests Alexander Shumsky, President of Russian Fashion Council.

The Fashion Week will take place as a set of new collections’ video presentations. Some of the collections will be presented as lookbooks. The Fashion Week (#MBFWRussia) website and media partners will be adding fresh content dedicated to the new collections throughout April.

Please stay tuned and follow all the updates through our official website www.mercedesbenzfashionweek.ru/en and our official social networking accounts:

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin announces show schedule and programme
details
From Monday, 13th January through to Wednesday, 15th January 2020, designers
and fashion brands from the high-end segment will present their collections and designs
for autumn/winter 2020 to press representatives, buyers and fashion insiders at
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, which is for the first time being
held at Kraftwerk Berlin.
With 15 shows and exhibitions and more than 30 participating exciting talents and
established brands in total, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin will give a once
again increasing number of designers a platform to showcase their work at a new
location in January 2020. Co-Initiator Mercedes-Benz and event organiser NOWADAYS
are delighted to announce the official show schedule of Mercedes-Benz Fashion
Week Berlin 
for the Autumn/Winter 2020 season:

The show concept puts fashion, design and creativity into the spotlight and this
season opens on the evening of January 13th 2020 with a group show of four
fashion designers from South Africa, presented by Mercedes-Benz. Their
designs are showcased as part of the talent development  programme Mercedes-
Benz Fashion Talents. In the joint show, Clive Rundle, Floyd Avenue, Viviers
Studio and Rich Mnisi take the audience on a journey through the broad
spectrum of contemporary South African fashion – a modern interpretation of
culture, craftsmanship and tradition. Further participating labels on the 45-metre
long RUNWAY
 on the top floor of Kraftwerk include established love brands such
as Sportalm Kitzbühel, Riani and Kilian Kerner’s label KXXK as well as upand-
coming designer labels such as Cashmere Victim, Danny Reinke, Irene Luft
Couture, Lena Hoschek, Rebekka Ruétz and DSTM.

The international Collective Last Heirs will present its new collection on Tuesday
evening. Prior to their show, the green fashion platform NEONYT will stage its
popular Combined Show with brand and designers dedicated to creating
sustainable fashion.

A particular highlight is the closing show of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
Berlin Autumn/Winter 
2020, in which Wolfgang Joop will present his new
concept „Looks by Wolfgang Joop“ in a world première exclusively to fashion
professionals.

In the new location, the MBFW experience will also include a second presentation
platform, the newly devised STUDIO. The additional platform enables designers
to stage their work with a more individual and conceptional approach as an
alternative to the RUNWAY. Already the opening of the STUDIO will be spectacular:
the designer duo ODEEH will take to the stage on Tuesday evening. Subsequently,
designer Nobi Talai will present her collection to her guests there on Wednesday.

Focus on Fashion & Design:
In collaboration with creatives, partners and media representatives, the involved
parties continue towork on their mission of invigorating Germany as a fashion
location, giving it maximum visibility. In that respect, the show schedule is
complemented by various fashion focussed exhibition concepts:

• LOCAL HEROES: In collaboration with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, the
Senate Department for Economy, Energy and Enterprises/Project Future presents
a new concept which was developed to support talents and established fashion
labels from Berlin. In addition to three funded fashion shows, 6 designers are given
the opportunity to present their key looks to an expert audience as well as the
general public within one installation at MBFW.

• MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION TALENTS: The most succinct designs of by Mercedes-
Benz supported designers Clive Rundle, Floyd Avenue, Viviers Studio and Rich
Mnisi
 will be exhibited throughout Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week following the
opening show and can also be experienced by end consumers.

• A/C POP-UP GALLERY: Another special novelty within the new location is the Pop
-up Gallery. “A/C” stands for “Artists & Contributors”, as different forms of art and
creative work framing fashion will be presented here from now on. For the opening
of the new space, multi-artist Armin Morbach will exhibit a curated selection of his
works. A Vernissage will take place on Tuesday, January 14, at 11am. The artist will
be present.

Art Rotterdam 6-9 February 2020

Following a successful 20th anniversary edition last winter with no less than 28,500 visitors, Art Rotterdam is delighted to announce its 21st edition which will take place next February. At Art Rotterdam 2020, art professionals and enthusiasts will have the opportunity to experience, discover and purchase new works in an inspiring context. Besides the ongoing collaboration between local and international galleries, the new edition will boast two new additions: Projections, internationally known as one of the best of video sections at fairs, will be totally revamped in order to propose an augmented experience to visitors and a new exciting initiative dedicated to performance Art will be launched: The Performance Show.

citizenM Projections
Projections, Art Rotterdam’s section devoted to cinematographic and video arts, is undergoing a complete transformation for the first time in seven years. Participants will be able to chose new formats to display videos, a new selection committee and a new forward looking design by Tom Postma Design will be
introduced in collaboration with our main partner citizenM hotels. The selection committee consists of Hugo Brown (Family Brown Collection), Bob and Renée Drake, Liesbeth Willems (curator of the KRC collection) and Bart Rutten (director of Centraal Museum Utrecht). Each committee member committed to acquire a work from Projections to include in their collection. citizenM hotels, the organisation for
which art is its DNA, will exhibit their purchased works in all their worldwide hotels, from New York and Paris, all the way to Taipei.

The Performance Show
Atelier van Lieshout, situated nearby the Van Nelle Fabriek, will serve as a stage for a new initiative stemming from Art Rotterdam called The Performance Show. Performance art is gaining an increasing momentum with the general public. The curator Zippora Elders (artistic director Kunstfort at Vijfhuizen) will be initiating a continuous programme of local and international performance artist with vanguard
practices. With a varied three-day programme, boasting exciting partnerships (including the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam), The Performance Show is a promising new initiative specially conceived for the Art Rotterdam Week.

NN Group Art Award
For the fourth consecutive year, the NN Group Art Award will once again take place during Art Rotterdam 2020. NN Group (Nationale-Nederlanden) is a Dutch insurance company with a long history in the field of cultural patronage. Like previous years, the award will be attributed to an exceptional talent whose work can be seen at the fair. The most important criteria for nomination are: the completion of an art education in the Netherlands, high-quality work and showing an authentic and innovative craftsmanship. The winner of 2019 was the Dutch artist Katja Mater, represented by the Galerie Martin van Zomeren. She received an incentive prize of € 10,000. In addition, one of her works was purchased by the NN Group Art Collection. This year’s jury consists of: Sofía Hernandez Chong Cuy, director Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam; Sietske van Zanten, director LAM Lisse; Katja Mater, visual artist; Jan Pieter Ekker, art director Het Parool; and Els Drummen, curator NN Group Art Collection.

Irene Luft Autumn Winter 2020

By /NEWS/
Irene Luft Autumn | Winter 2020

The collection exalts the sadness radiated by beauty and the beauty radiated by
sadness. The mood is transported by colors seemingly lost within wafts of mist.
The colors range from the black of haunted forests, to the pastels of flower fields,
to the berry tones of Belladonna.
Different materials like feather light chiffon and heavy doubleface emphasize the
contrast between the fragility and beauty of life and the sadness and darkness of
transience and mortality.

Delicate floral accents reminding of innocent blooming nature are concurrently

Classic lines are devoting special attention to lucidity of pure feminine beauty.
Irene Luft combines the strong and majestic appearance of a seemingly
supernatural woman with a warm and romantic soul.

Lena Hoschek Artisan Partisan AW 20/21

Berlin, January 15th 2020 – In Autumn/Winter 2020 Lena Hoschek will go on a special
world 
tour. With a bohemian mix of folklore and artisanal materials, the
dressmaker combines different 
ethnic influences with fabrics from all over the
world. We will experience a collection that artfully 
blends different cultures and
traditions.
The designer’s wonderful journey begins in Vienna – the city that, along with Paris,
was considered the fashion metropolis of the Empire period. Back then, the
Viennese scarf was all the rage, its Persian paisley in a fine silk/wool blend
decorated with hand-knotted fringe.

Inspired by this 18th-century must-have, still produced in the same way in a
Viennese silk-weaving mill, Lena Hoschek had magnificent paisleys woven for her
collection. Lena’s path continues across the Balkans to Anatolia, where Pakistani
ikat silks and Persian pomegranate decorations enrich her designs. Moldavian rose
kilim patterns, almost Baroque in their design, adorn prints designed exclusively
for the collection. Inspired by an Oriental spice bazaar, the designs take on a colour
palette from One Thousand and One Nights. A short detour takes the designer
to Lake Como – a region already considered the capital of European silk in the 17th
century – where she will buy paisley silks from a silk-tie manufacturer and
transform them into spectacular couture gowns.

Adding fabrics from Spain to her luggage, she travels on to France. Once there,
she has antique fabric patterns turned into picturesque fabrics embroidered with
arabesques. German milliner Fiona Bennett’s stunning hat creations and Austrian
designer Silvia Gattin’s extraordinary kilim boots ensure a perfect look from head
to toe.
