ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE DATE, CHANGE OF LOCATION & NEW CONCEPT
The dates for DER BERLINER SALON have now been set. The salon week will take place from the 14th to the 17th of January 2019.
The group exhibition with all designers will be taking place on Tuesday, 15th of January 2019 between 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm. For its ninth edition, the central design show of DER BERLINER SALON is relocating, presenting the Autumn I Winter 2019 collections of its fashion designers at the St. Elisabeth church in Berlin Mitte for the first time. The classical building by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, was heavily damaged during the second world war, however is being restored since the 1990s. During the reconstruction, it was consciously decided, not to rebuild the destroyed interior decoration. Elements such as the roof, the windows and the organ loft were complemented with timeless interpretations. An expression of the zeitgeist.
In the new location the group exhibition will furthermore be orchestrated with a new presentation format, which becomes evident in the room layout and the styling. Whilst the side aisle of the church functions as the presentation space for the individual designers, the central nave is being filled with a large editorial installation. The designs of all participating fashion designers are being combined freely. Like last January, product and interior design pieces will be integrated, this time being staged in the adjoining Villa Elisabeth. Through this, DER BERLINER SALON strengthens its credo of „Representing German Design“, whilst further expanding its aspiration to show a cross section of relevant German designers. Emotional and inspiring.
Parallel to the group exhibition, the listed Villa Elisabeth will be hosting the VOGUE Salon. The German VOGUE’s format to promote young talents, which was initiated by the editor-in-chief Christiane Arp in 2011, will be displayed in the generous and grand hall on the first floor.
