PLATTE, the hottest new community for creatives and fashion in Berlin, is joining forces with Berlin's hottest new D2C festival, 'The Ground – a Celebration of Style & Culture', premiering this summer from 7 – 9 July.
The communities of The Ground and PLATTE will open the festival together with a big parade through Berlin. During the event, PLATTE will team up with stylists and artists from Berlin to create unique festival looks from upcycled fashion pieces.
As an inclusive, diverse and sustainable platform PLATTE has already breathed new life into Berlin's creative scene with its Ballroom show and most recently with its inclusive live window installation. We met the PLATTE team and asked them to give us some insights.
