Germany : KAFFEE ORIENTAL - Urban fashion from Arabian Nights

July 4, 2007
Independent streetwear labels, underground fashion & urban styles: 100 creative, international young designers will once again present an exceptional cross-over in trends away from the mainstream at the 7th Edition of Design Attack in Hall 13.
The programme in the Scene Area includes not only shoes, bags and accessories, but also Urban and Streetwear, lingerie as well as the most diverse lifestyle products.
The forthcoming Design Attack from 14 to 16 September 2007 enables the visitors to experience the oriental magic of the fascinating Moroccan regal city Marrakesh with all their senses under the KAFFEE ORIENTAL design and event motto.
The fair stands are presented true-to-original style as Arabian merchants palaces or Riads with filigree arches and ornaments in a warm colour spectrum ranging from orange to terracotta and bordeaux.
Oriental light spectacles, sensual rose petal, vanilla, cinnamon aromas, and as a highlight, an original oriental Souk bazaar, authentically reflect the exotic atmosphere of the historic old town edina.
On the bazaar street, there is the lively, colourful hustle and bustle between stands offering spices, different tea varieties, fragrances along with oriental carpet merchants, snake charmers and seductive belly dancers.
In the oriental boxes all around the catwalk at the KAFFEE ORIENTAL Plaza, anyone who gets too hot will find a genuine oasis with palm trees, refreshing cocktails and fountain as well as several water plume fountains. Several times a day KAFFEE ORIENTAL Shows are held there, which present extravagant looks and trends.
