  • Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Spring/Summer 2016.

  • From Hyères to Berlin.

    Heavy wool, juxtaposed with transparent silk organza, strong dark/light contrasts and playful silhouettes defines the look of German-French designer Annelie Schubert. This spring, her current collection took first prize at the “International Festival of Fashion and Photography“ in Hyères – Europe’s foremost fashion festival.

    Singled out by the jury, which is chaired by no other than Karl Lagerfeld, the Berlin-based designer also gets to present her creations at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin as part a prize supported by Mercedes-Benz and ELLE magazine.

    The Berliner Mode Salon.

    The graduate of Berlin’s Weißensee College of Art staged a persuasive runway show at the Brandenburg Gate location, once again winning over buyers and journalists alike with her collection’s elegance and sophisticated craftsmanship. Plenty of excitement for the young designer who had almost lost her voice by next day’s collection presentation at The Berliner Mode Salon, yet patiently aimed to answer all of the assembled media and fashion pros’ questions on cuts, materials and manufacturing methods.

    Learning from the best.

    For the second season running, Ther Berliner Mode Salon presents fashion “made in Germany” by 25 hand-picked designers curated by German VOGUE’s editor-in-chief, Christiane Arp. A stunning start for Annelie Schubert who plans to hone her talents at one of the great fashion houses before possibly embarking on a label of her own. “I haven’t done a lot of collections yet, so I want to broaden my horizon and gather more experience before I even start to think about my own label,” adds the likeably down-to-earth designer.
