With the show schedules of New York, London, Milan and Paris in flux as big-name designers switch to presentations instead of the catwalk, or move their brand to a different city altogether, smaller fashion weeks have experienced a real boom in recent years. Copenhagen, Kiev, Lagos and Tbilisi offer thrilling emerging designers a platform to showcase their work, and with Instagram ensuring a global reach, it’s a great time to discover new talent.
Berlin Fashion Week is worth marking on the calendar, not only for its exciting lineup (think Christoph Rumpf, Marcel Ostertag and William Fan) but for its ever-cool street style. Berliners know how to nail casual cool and as temperatures in the city rise, there’s nowhere better to look for warm weather sartorial inspiration.
