Selvedge Run Trade Show Berlin Summer 2018

Today the 7th edition of the Selvedge Run will starts in Berlin. Selvedge Run is a trade show with a strong focus on jeans, footwear, magazines, books, jackets, jewelery and other accessories. Most of the exhibitors, the brands, have an unique story to tell. It’s about high-quality, craftsmanship and passion for the product. They represent a lifestyle. Same as the shop owners who visit the show to see the latest collections of the brands. More than 100 brands will be there under one roof. It’s a gathering for likeminded people.

The New Location Of Selvedge Run

The organisation switched the location of the show to Palais am Funkturm. This characteristic building is designed by Bruno GrimmekPalais am Funkturm is part of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds and was built in 1956- 1957. It was one of the best looking and most modern venues to host events featuring an unusual room layout and the charm of the fifties.

With a retractable staircase, partitions and a chandelier adjustable for height, it’s an outstanding and perfect space for the show. The fifties and sixties are back in vogue there, with curved designs, period decorations and a large patio complete with fountains.
