A Fashion Special (#728)

Designer for Tomorrow Contest - Winning the chance to stage your own show at next year's Berlin Fashion Week is a huge opportunity for a young designer. Five young designers faced it off at the finals to choose the winner during this year's fashion week.

German designer Patrick Mohr - German designer Patrick Mohr is always good for a surprise or two. While most designers go all out to make their models look stunning that's not always his priority.

Fashion designer Guido Maria Kretschmer - Guido Maria Kretschmer is one of Germany's shining lights in the fashion industry. Words like glamorous, luxurious and elegant probably best describe his vision of how to clothe the feminine form. We met up with him in his Berlin showroom.

Fashion designer Kilian Kerner - Kilian Kerner's fashion shows get rave reviews and fashion magazines have chosen him as Germany's next big fashion export. We met up with him at Berlin Fashion Week.

Cinque - Fashion and Women's Football - The partnership between the German women's soccer team and the fashion label Cinque began in 2007. Cinque's World Cup Collection is called Cinque Favorita 2011. The colours are inspired by football - Black and white; black red and gold; beige for chino trousers, and a little bit of football pitch green.

Fashion label Schumacher - Dorothee Schumacher initially studied business but went on to complete apprenticeships in textile craft around Europe. She founded her label in 1989 in Mannheim, and her timeless, elegant and very feminine look proved immediately popular. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
