On 18 January, during the Berlin Fashion Week and as part of the BERLIN FASHION SALON, VOGUE Editor in Chief Christiane Arp invited to the pre-reception of the 12th VOGUE Salon, the young talent promotion initiative of the fashion magazine. At Kronprinzenpalais – the UPDATE16 location last fall – design talents from the DACH area had the opportunity to present their collections for Fall/Winter 2017/18 on the VOGUE stage.
Alongside designers from the previous season – Marina Hoermanseder, Nobieh Talaei (Nobi Talai), Sarah Effenberger (Fomme) and William Fan – two young talents exhibited their fashion creations at the VOGUE Salon: Petar Petrov as well as Franziska Fürpass-Kermani and Sia Ali-Pour-Kermani with their label Femme Maison.
On top of all that, presented in partnership with Swarovski was a special selection of VOGUE design talents. William Fan, Marina Hoermanseder, Tim Labenda and René Storck exhibited hand-crafted designs, refined with Swarovski crystals themed upon “Smoking”. More information on the Salon is available directly from VOGUE.
The VOGUE Salon is an initiative launched by VOGUE Editor in Chief Christiane Arp in 2011 to promote young fashion designers from the DACH area. The VOGUE Salon takes place twice annually during Berlin Fashion Week as a capsule event at the group exhibition of the Berlin Fashion Salon, and Christiane Arp is co-initiator. The VOGUE Salon gives hand-picked, up-and-coming designers a stage for up to four seasons where they can present their collections to an international specialist audience of retailers, buyers and journalists, and can network essential business relationships for future commercial success.
