While our goal is always to maintain the event as an organic platform for the industry here, it is heartening to see its continued success even in the face of the current difficult economic climate.”

Kilian Kerner, who has shown his collections with Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin in past seasons, is now also head designer of the new label No Ifs, which will present its premiere collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin.

The Designer for Tomorrow program will take place once a year in July, with Peek & Cloppenburg supporting the winning designer with a solo show at the January events.

“Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin is very experimental, creative and inspiring,” says Anders Sundt Jensen, Vice President Brand Communications Mercedes Benz Cars. “This season's key visual, created by Nick Knight and Gareth Pugh, mirrors these elements. With their trendsetting work they have perfectly shown the connection between fashion and technology and staged our new sports car, Mercedes Benz SLS AMG and model Julia Stegner in a spectacular way.”

During Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in July 2009, thousands of business professionals from all around the world were attracted to the German capital.
