Fashion Council Germany meets Chancellor Angela Merkel

During Fashion Week, the council board, select guests and fashion industry opinion leaders were invited to a reception at the Bundeskanzleramt by Dorothee Bär, the German commissioner for digitalization and state minister. “I see today’s meeting as the beginning of a dialogue to advance the concept of fashion designed/made in Germany in the digital age,” she remarked. However, to everyone’s surprise, chancellor Angela Merkel herself made a brief appearance to talk to FCG members.
