The Vogue Salon is an initiative launched by Vogue editor-in-chief Christiane Arp in 2011 to promote young German fashion designers and takes place twice a year during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. For up to four seasons, the Vogue Salon offers hand-picked young fashion designers a stage to present their collections to an international specialist audience of retailers, buyers and journalists, and to establish the relationships with retailers that are essential for commercial success. The Vogue Salon takes place as part of the group exhibition of the Berliner Mode Salons in the Kronprinzenpalais in Berlin.


Under the motto A Global Celebration of Fashion , Vogue is initiating an international shopping initiative that is being held in 5 countries and 14 cities worldwide.

In Germany, the shopping initiative took place from 2009 to 2017. At Fashion's Night Out, fashion boutiques and department stores are open until midnight.
