Embattled Bread & Butter is not down for the count——yet. The Berlin-based trade fair, which cancelled its regular show format scheduled for Jan. 19-21 due to financial woes and a dramatic decrease in exhibitors, is hosting an “unconventional business forum and meeting point” for the apparel industry.
The event is set to take place Jan. 19-21 during Berlin Fashion Week at Bread & Butter headquarters, Münzstrasse 13, as well as at “The Blue Yard”, Münzstrasse 21 in Berlin Mitte.
About 40 brands have signed up on participate in what Bread & Butter founder Karl-Heinz Müller called a “back to the street” style of show.
