DESIGNER FOR TOMORROW 2015 – Mareike Massing
Mareike Massing is the winner of the fashion talent award “Designer for Tomorrow” by Peek & Cloppenburg and its online shop Fashion ID. This graduate of Berlin’s University for Applied Sciences won over Patron Zac Posen and the Jury Board at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin with her black and white-based womenswear collection “Acting Big”.
In Mareike Massing’s winning collection, patterns that seem structural meet hard black lines that engage with romantic white – which is what captured the imaginations of the Jury Board and the Patron. Talking to host Jeannine Michaelsen, Zac Posen said that, “All five finalists showed a strong vision in their collections. For me, that is the hallmark of both a promising designer and Mareike’s designs. I look forward to supporting this up-and-coming designer and welcoming her to my studio and my show in New York.” Visiting the Patron is part of the one-year sponsorship program that the initiators P&C and Fashion ID offer to jointly support Mareike. By winning the DfT award, Mareike Massing is following in Matteo Lamandini’s footsteps.
