As the climax of this year’s „International Reunion“, a three-day symposium around creative and educational exchange and intercultural dialogue between all ESMOD schools, on Wednesday ESMOD Berlin International Academy of Fashion celebrated its 20th anniversary with a great fashion gala.

25 years ago Dorothea Beisser and Silvia Kadolsky decided to establish high quality design to Germany.
Together they founded the international fashion school ESMOD Munich in 1989 and the ESMOD Berlin five years later. After announcing the international expansion of the ESMOD schools, both got the responsibility for the German ESMOD schools.

Now, ten of the international graduates of ESMOD presented their spring/summer collection 2015 at Ludwig Loewe Saal in Berlin.
Among them were well-known names, such as Marina Hoermanseder, the duo Augustin Teboul and Vanessa Morin. The Oslo Label „Black Rat“ was inspired by the Noise-Rock band „Deathcrush’s“ to inspire and design a functional, comfortable and sporty collection tailored to festival lovers. Candella Hostal, who graduated from ESMOD Dubai, showed a slowly passing and playful collection. Elfin colours like mint green, soft blue, and orange peach made her collection a real eye-catcher. The collections of Lorran Augusto from the ESMOD Sao Paulo, the Karoui Luxury Fashion from Tunis as well as designer Mel Ahyar from Jakarta and last but not least Rami Kadi from Beirut followed with his oriental touched collection.

The reunion for the 25th anniversary of the ESMOD has been as renowned and diverse as to be expected from the design school. We shall continue to follow these spectacular and avant-garde creations and thank you for the great impressions of the evening.
With this in mind: Happy Birthday, ESMOD Berlin!
