This seasons Ethical Fashion Show registered more exhibitors and visitors than ever before. 73 exhibitors from 15 countries, about half of which were foreign exhibitors, have shown the status quo of green street and casual wear. “The constantly increasing number of exhibitors and visitors are proving that green fashion is more popular than ever before,” says Detlef Braun, general manager of Messe Frankfurt.

Apart from the Ethical Fashion Show, Green Showroom is also presenting sustainable fashion in Berlin. Both are building Europe’s biggest platform for green fashion. Renate Künast, president of the Bündnis 90/Die Grünen Bundestag faction, said at the beginning of the fair: “Everything we can see here around us shows that another world, another mode of consumption is possible.”

“For us it was a good fair,” says Bert van Son, CEO of Mud Jeans. “It is a must, to be here in Berlin. The fair is getting bigger and bigger and we had a strong frequency at the stand.”
