Messe Frankfurt and ESMOD

Since 2011, the Berlin International University of Art for Fashion and the Frankfurt trade fair company cooperate aiming to make sustainability an integral part in the fashion world. Students of ESMOD Berlin were designing the clothing for the staff of the German Pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milan. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, Messe Frankfurt organised the construction and running of the German Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015. According to the Expo slogan “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, sustainability with regard to materials and production techniques was a central criteria for the collections.

The winning design will be unveiled to the public at the Greenshowroom in Berlin between 8 and 10 July 2014. The Greenshowroom, together with the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin, forms the largest platform for green fashion in Europe during the Berlin Fashion Week. Both trade fairs are organised by Messe Frankfurt.
