With Berlin Fashion Week around the corner, we took this episode as an opportunity to check in with some of the organizers working behind the scenes. Magdalena speaks with Jana Beck from the VORN Academy, Anne Franke and Julius Forgo from the VORN fashion showcase, and Lou Croff Blake from studio MM04 and 202030 – The Berlin Fashion Summit.
First, Jana, community manager and program manager from VORN – The Berlin Fashion Hub, talks about the new VORN Academy program, which welcomed nine designers to collaborate on a ‘phygital’ circular fashion collection over the course of three months. The VORN Academy’s collection, titled The Hooked Loop, will be available to view at Bikini Berlin (Budapesterstr. 38) from January 18-20.
Next, we’re joined by Anne and Julius, who curated the VORN Fashion Show. This live runway show curates and styles the work of groundbreaking sustainable designers, in multi-brand looks. Anne and Julius have been collaborating with Magdalena for a long time on the production of similar shows, and this latest event, themed Role Models, is sure to turn heads.
Finally, Lou Croff Blake shares their experience in co-developing the program for the Edition #5 of 202030 – The Berlin Fashion Summit. This behind-the-scenes view shows the balance of Lou’s enthusiasm for the summit's vision, with their day-to-day realities of organizing an event with a small team. They also give a sneak-peek into the upcoming program of the 202030 Summit, highlighting some speakers and segments that ticket holders can look forward to.
