Sustainable Fashion Trends: Autumn Winter 2019/20


Contrasts are merging together in the sustainable fashion trends AW 2019/20. Waste is being turned into fashion, fashion is being turned into added value. People’s emotional bond with the ocean plays a central role in the collections. A modern minimalism and a new vintage are mixed in harmony. Fine lines and tradicional timeless get together. The tech-nature is over all. Come with us. Discover the new sustainable fashion trends for Autumn Winter 2019/20.


Tech Nature, Reflection of our Time, Modern Vintage, Fine Lines,  Play on Tradition, Easy to Wear and Modern Minimalism. These are the 7 trends setted up for Autumn Winter 2019/20 by responsables of Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation, which is taking place from 15-17 January 2019 in Berlin. Believe us, they know what they are talking about!

Water and desert. Prosperity and poverty. Technology and nature. On his travels, the modern nomad moves between the worlds and climatic extremes. The environment is his constant companion. Sometimes unspoiled in its breathtaking beauty, sometimes threatened by human intervention.


Contrasts, new technologies and mindfulness

Contrasts are merging together in the AW19/20 sustainable fashion collections to be exhibited at the event. The colour schemes are contrasting. Sand, earthenware, clay – earthy tones are forming the basis of the Autumn Winter collections. Mustard-yellow tones, dark mocha and rich Bordeaux are adding warm highlights while ink blue from the seabed is adding depth.

New technologies are paving the way for sustainable innovations, such as revolutionary recycling methods in keeping with the slogan “Trash is the good news”. People’s emotional bond with the ocean plays a central role in the collections. High-tech fabrics made of recycled fishing nets are a nod to the ambivalent use of water as a resource. Mindfulness without sacrifice – the sustainable fashion brands exhibiting at Neonyt during Berlin Fashion Week are showing just how innovative sustainable fashion is looking in the here and now.

Sporty performance looks have long since grown out of the outdoor segment and well and truly arrived in the realm of urban street style. “It is the Art of Assembling” – they say. “It is the harmony of progressive sustainability” – we add.


Neonyt Fashion Show: Trends on the catwalk

On 16 January 2019 at 7:30 pm, the Neonyt Fashion Show will show all these trends. It will be showcasing the very best pieces by various national and international fashion labels, compiled in curated multi-brand looks. Whether on Instagram or on the high street – brands are being individually combined and mixed together. That is inspiration. For influencers just as much as for buyers looking for an interesting mix of labels for their assortments. “The concept of the Neonyt Fashion Show with its editorial fashion looks is unique. We’re building the bridge between the fashion world and the consumers and their vibrant ‘Art of Assembling’ – the art of combining garments like the fragments of a mosaic to form one harmonious whole. The Neonyt Fashion Show is therefore breaking with the traditions of classic fashion shows and presenting the latest eco-chic styles as part of individual outfits,” says Neonyt Show Director at Messe Frankfurt Thimo Schwenzfeier. 

Neonyt Creative Director Magdalena Schaffrin is responsible for the concept of the Neonyt Fashion Show. Again, she collaborates with renowned stylist and co-founder of the Fashion Council Germany, Claudia Hofmann, to curate the show looks. Broadcast live from E-Werk into Kraftwerk: the Neonyt Fashion Show will be shown during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Berlin’s E-Werk event location and be streamed live into Kraftwerk Berlin.
