Berlin Fashion Week

As the designer behind Drenkrom, participating in Berlin Fashion Week was not just an opportunity to showcase a signature look, but a momentous occasion to redefine the very essence of luxury in fashion. The Vorn Academy Showcase centered around the themes of circularity and luxury, provided the perfect platform for us to unveil our vision to the world.

At the heart of our showcase was an angelic ensemble unlike any other—a creation that not only embodies sexiness and desire but also carried a powerful message of sustainability and innovation. Crafted from a unique blend of materials including latex production waste, hardware, coat hangers, and deadstock tulle, this angel look represented a bold departure from traditional haute couture.

For us at Drenkrom, the process of creating this ensemble was nothing short of transformative. We approached each element with meticulous care, seeing potential where others saw waste. The discarded latex scraps, sourced from production leftovers, were repurposed and reshaped into ethereal forms, while hardware and coat hangers lent a touch of industrial chic to the design. The deadstock tulle, added a layer of movement and fluidity to the ensemble. The original idea and inspiration behind the angel look was the movie Der Himmel Über Berlin, but as part of the exhibition Drenkrom’s Angel slowly became the angel of fashion apocalypse.

As the pieces came together, a sense of awe and wonder swept over us. It was more than just a garment; it was a work of art—a testament to the boundless creativity that emerges when sustainability and luxury intersect.

But beyond the applause and accolades, what truly mattered was the impact our work would have on the fashion landscape. By showcasing the potential of upcycled materials and circular design, we hoped to inspire others to embrace sustainability in their own creative pursuits. We wanted to prove that luxury did not have to come at the expense of the environment—that beauty could be found in the most unexpected places.

As I reflect on our journey at Berlin Fashion Week, I am filled with a sense of pride and gratitude. It was an honor to represent Drenkrom on such a prestigious stage and to share our vision with the world. But more importantly, it was a reminder that as designers, we have the power to shape not just trends, but also attitudes and behaviors. And for us at Drenkrom, that means leading the charge towards a more sustainable and conscious future for fashion.
