Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Fall/Winter 2008

The Berlin Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008 housed over 60 events that took place from January 25th to February 3rd, among which the Mercedes-Benz fashion shows held at Postbahnhof.

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.

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.

The 30paarhaende project enables students to put into practice concepts developed in class. The 30paarhaende label aims to be an up market fashion line, designed for self-confident, strong women over 30 years old, women who want their personality to be emphasized by their impeccable fashion sense. The 30 pieces collection is wearable but at the same time sophisticated and innovative, with a minimalist twist.
