VDMD: Anniversary celebrated in style
The VDMD, Association of German Fashion and Textile Designers, showed its innovative and creative side when hosting its 30th anniversary event on 12 November 2015. With more than 250 guests from industry, design, politics and the trade, this special occasion was celebrated in the Atrium of Deutsche Bank in Berlin.
The team led by President René Lang, Vice-Presidents Iris Andre, Susan Wrschka and Suzana Wouda, and branch team Mara Michel, Regine Blättler and Gerd Ritzau succeeded in producing a fabulous and memorable event.
VDMD`s design ambassador and high-fashion designer Thomas Rath emphasised the importance of promoting young talent, stressing that Germany can only sustain itself as a centre of fashion and culture if it takes its young people by the hand. This was impressively borne out by the Fashion Show and the big SHOW by VDMD label designers Heidi Beck, Verena Ebner von Eschenbach, Bernhard Hohmann, Caroline Klein, Ursula Laudien, Arosha Rosenberger, Petros S., Michael Spitzbarth, Angela Thiel-Entacher, with Renate Wohlfart and Christiane Wirth.
In response, Christiane Arp, editor-in-chief of Vogue stated: “ .....If, here in Germany, the appreciation and support for fashion designed in Germany grows, the international awareness of German fashion will likewise improve. The VDMD is a strong network synonymous with powerful lobbying – in our role as a strong partner and promoter of Germany`s fashion and textile designers, we`re looking forward to working hand in hand as we move into the future together.”
