Since the beginning of 2018, the Fashion Council Germany has been located at its new headquarters on the rooftop terrace of the BIKINI BERLIN concept shopping mall. With the aim of further promoting and establishing German fashion design as a cultural and economic asset, the new office spaces, including a showroom, are not only a port of call for the managing director Scott Lipinski and his team, but also for the presidium with Christiane Arp, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Germany, at the helm, as well as the board including Deputy Chairwoman Marie-Louise Berg and mentees like William Fan and Philomena Zanetti. The 105 m² space will also be regularly used for round table talks, collection presentations and seasonal press days. This year, it will be exclusively playing host to three unique pop-up shop events featuring designs by members of the Fashion Council. Fashion Council Germany has found a reliable partner in BIKINI BERLIN. After all, pop-up stores have a long tradition at the concept shopping mall, which is world-renowned for its pop-up boxes on the ground floor that change every one to six months.
FIRST FCG FASHION POP-UP WITH THE THEME “Summer, sunshine & sand”
Curated by the Fashion Council Germany, from 6 until 10 June a number of German labels will be presenting and selling highlights from their summer collections at BIKINI BERLIN. Visitors can look forward to shopping pieces by Berlin-based designer duo Steinrohner, Malaika Raiss from Berlin, swimwear by Mymarini, raffia bags by Goldstück, sustainable label Bav Tailor and basics by Phyne.

About BIKINI BERLIN

The area around the Bahnhof Zoo train station is shining in new splendour and setting the pace in Berlin – nowhere else in the city are so many new and exciting spaces popping up. And right in the middle of it all is BIKINI BERLIN: a concept shopping mall, the 25hours hotel and the Zoo Palast cinema with architecture that is steeped in history.
