The inimitable Bread and Butter tradeshow returns to Berlin to brighten up the bleak post-Christmas winter. With their winning formula of ‘fun and profit’, Bread and Butter have built an innovative trade fair and dynamic junction for fashion and textile industry buyers, traders, bloggers and press. The organisers’ eye for brands along with a canny selectivity makes this a sought-after event for businesses and consumers alike, and has solidified their reputation as one of the most important occasions on the fashion calendar.
This season’s theme is BIG TIME, a part reference to the extension by popular demand of the show’s running time, from two to three days. "I feel very comfortable with this decision, since in the last seasons one could observe the visitors increasingly becoming 'haunted men'”, said B&B president, Karl-Heinz Müller, in reference to the increasing demands of an ever-busier Berlin during its biannual Fashion Week.
