Party On for Armani... Pilati Casts Pitt... Earnest Sewn's Art Supplies...

Whether it's the impact of the economy or another reason, there will be far fewer parties during New York Fashion Week next month.

ALL CHANGE: Bernhard Willhelm is to stage a one-off men’s presentation during Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which runs Jan. 28-Feb. 1. The avant-garde designer plans to unveil a big installation Jan. 31 in the city’s colossal red-brick Postbahnhof venue, a former railway station. “It is a challenge for me to do a show in another city, to reach a different audience and to have other possibilities,” he said. “I am German, so after 10 years of creation, it’s nice to show your face and your work to your own country.” Willhelm, who usually shows in Paris, joins the event’s official lineup of 24 designer runway shows, to be held in a tent on Bebelplatz and other venues across town. Most of the participants are German, even if some, like Markus Lupfer and Felder & Felder, are not based in their home country. Top fashion brands such as Boss, Strenesse Blue, Schumacher, Joop and Michalsky are showing aside young talents like Sisi Wasabi, Kaviar Gauche or Lala Berlin.
