While the fashion shows didn't lack well-known labels I have to say that I was more impressed by students' presentations. The Weissensee School of Art and Design, first time guest at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, send down on the runway 10 collections with 100 outfits brilliantly designed by its students and recent graduates.
Weissensee was founded in 1946 in Berlin and keeps its reputation as a creative, professional and avant-garde talent factory.
30paarhaende (meaning "30 pairs of hands") is the fashion label started in 2003 by the University of Applied Sciences FHTW Berlin. Since then, the label produces two collections annually, sold on both the national and international fashion markets.30 Paar Haende fall/winter 2008-2009 photo credit www.mercedes-benzfashionweek.com
