Berlin represents a national and an international appeal; an exciting mix of art, film, music and fashion. This is where tomorrow’s trends are born. Berlin attracts a great number of young creative people from all over the world thanks to the excellent living conditions and freedom of design. The creative industry of the city is still very young. Only about 20% of the companies were established before 1990 or have previously settled in Berlin. The vast majority of them has been founded from the mid 1990s onwards.
There are more than 2,500 companies in the capital working in the fashion industry (report November 2016). Berlin has become the city with the highest density of fashion-related companies in Germany, the fashion sector employing about 22,900 people. In 2014, the turnover of Berlins fashion industry rounded up to 4,3 billion euros, to which the Berlin Fashion Week contributed a major part.
