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.

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
fashion sense. The 30 pieces collection is wearable but at the same
time sophisticated and innovative, with a minimalist twist.
