21. Fashion Night on July 6, 2019 at the Market Square in Apolda

For many years now, the Apolda Modenacht, which will take place on the 6tjh of July 2019, has been an expression of traditional textile history, which has already delighted fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld.

The marketplace is transformed into a night time open-air catwalk. Collections of knitting and textile companies from Apolda, the region, as well as creations by young fashion designers and students from across Europe will be presented.

The fashion spectacle will begin on the 40-meter-long open-air catwalk at 8:30pm.

Right at the beginning, the children's project of the Kunstverein Apolda Avantgarde will take place.

"The Animals New Clothes" - a colorful CHILDREN'S PLAY will be performed. More than 15 children participate in the fashion show.

The Kunstverein sends a special greeting to the City of Bells, Apolda, which celebrates its 900th anniversary this year.

The fashion show moderated by Wenke Weber and designed by the RÜBERG fashion team will show the creative ideas of regional knitting and textile companies, where traditional and innovative fashion concepts blend. On display are the current pieces by Anke Hammer StrickArt, Kaseee design & art, SL Moden, Strickatelier Landgraf and strickchic GmbH.

The presentation of the collections of the 18th knitting and textile workshop at 10.00pm will be the highlight of the evening.

In the year of the Bauhaus, young creative ideas of the students on the topics of "invention - discovery, development, innovation, innovation and creation" meet with decades of experience. A total of 18 young designers from universities in Trier, Berlin-Weißensee, Paris and Helsinki took part in these workshops from the 10th of March to the 17th of March 2019 and brought their ideas and designs to six regional knitting companies and created their own collections.The motto could also be: Design meets technology.

The result are fresh, cheeky, futuristic but also wearable creations that put a smile on the faces of students, professors, tutors and company employees
