Neonyt Show: Top sustainable fashion trends Autumn Winter 2019-20


The chromatic display at the Neonyt Fashion Show offered an unbeatable material for Instagram and the thread of the fashion show. It was pure color psychology with different color palettes for all tastes. The concept addresses the idea of diversity. It is a tribute to the individual reflection of our identity.


Trabants in gray, modernists in a colorful World, Black Ink for those who want to see all painted, bright light for people who love harmony, soft toned…With all-over blue looks, Azure was a reference to the topic of water and fashion, the key theme of this year’s Neonyt. Yes, Claudia Hofmann, fashion director and co-founder of the Fashion Council Germany, made a fantastic job. It is not easy to mix brands and coordinate outfits in such an inspirational way. This “state-of-the-art” sustainable fashion show showed perfectly the neo-newfashion World.

We detected 7 top sustainable fashion trends at the Neonyt Fashion Show: Austerity, Color Explosion, Comfortably, Layers,  Patchwork, Statements and Arty Prints. As sustainable trends, they all should last forever. 



The sober and minimalist chic arrives. Inspired by the aesthetics of Jil Sander, sustainable fashion brands convert frugality in a ideological tool to situate the person, without artifice, in the center of the discourse.



Color explosion

The abstract interpretations gladden the winter garment by autonomasia. Colors move us to the future in an advanced way, but very human. The colorful garments protect us from the cold weather but they also connect us emotionally with those around us.




Soft and fluffy looking, the garments of next winter manage to add a delicate touch to the energetic sustainable collections. The sustainable athletic-chic becomes trend and an eternal warm companion.



The aesthetics of the comfortable and the psychology of protection arrive with layers. The looks are presented through layers and layers created with sustainable garments. Coats over coats subtract solemnity from sophisticated outfits and provide a lot of play when composing them.




Denim resurfaces again and again based on patchwork, which provides very personal and never anonymous garments. The pattern of these creations is very bold, full of an irresistible nostalgia.




Politics, activism, love… Sustainable fashion lovers want to send messages and make statements. The statatement t-shirt become icon of modernity. There is no planet B, female future, We are Water… who are you?



 Arty prints

The breath of fresh air from the walkway. The prints are made in collaboration with Artists or environmental photographers. The prints designs are made in old fashioned method, working with collage, free hand drawing and paint brushing.
