Fashion

Dear clothing technicians, tailors, customer consultants, stylists, designers, pattern makers, textile and fashion seamstresses, merchandisers, quality managers, goods-receiving control employees, buyers and product managers, around 20,000 colleagues currently work in about 3,500 Berlin fashion companies. 

The Berlin fashion industry includes the fields of design, production, sales (wholesale and retail), export as well as fashion trade shows and events. Online shops, such as e.g. Zalando or OUTFITTERY carry the industry’s reputation far beyond Berlin’s borders. Successful designers, for example Claudia Skoda or Michael Michalsky as well as fashion labels such as Wunderkind or lala Berlin are among the “greats” of the fashion industry – not to mention the manufacturers of accessories like jewelry, bags or glasses. Examples for this include the brands ic! Berlin and Mykita, and the manufacturers of work apparel, for example Sergeant Pepper. They are all potential employers.

Berlin trade and fashion shows captivate and thrill a large audience; modern order centers and showrooms offer exceptional display areas to wholesalers; multiple shopping miles and flagship stores of international brands attract fashion lovers to the capital – they are all part of Berlin’s fashion industry and offer jobs. But the fashion industry also offers great job opportunities to other professions. For example, web developers and graphic designers find jobs in the many up-and-coming Berlin fashion start-ups, or event managers as well as stage technicians at fashion events.

The Berlin fashion industry also includes many freelancers and small studios which produce in-house. However, a large part of fashion production is outsourced abroad, which provides job opportunities for distributors and quality managers. Salaries strongly depend on job experience and the different companies. Designers with less than four years of work experience earn between 18,000 and 30,000 euros gross, compared to designers with more than four years of work experience, who earn between 24,000 and 36,000 euros. A fashion seamstress earns an average of 22,000 euros and upwards. Start your job search! It’s worth it!
