24-hour fashion and creativity festival Reference Berlin recently launched its first ever event, showcasing installations from labels including 032c, 1017 ALYX 9SM and Martine Rose amongst others. Taking place in an abandoned car park in the Neukölln district of the city, this year’s festival had the theme “Working Out Loud.”

Stand-out installations included 032c’s “Future Artefacts (Part I of II),” which featured a robotic musical ensemble named One Love Machine Band by Kolja Gugler, as well as the launch of 1017 ALYX 9SM’s Fall/Winter 2019 preparation book, complete with an installation by Haruka Hirata.

Elsewhere, Hans Ulrich Obrist presented an installation from Functional Art Gallery’s OrtaMiklos. This installation saw a cage of electrical chords with performers and musicians wearing pieces designed Martine Rose. Rose also presented work with Wild Life Archive, comprising of original archive material, lookbook images and research film footage. This collaboration has seen Rose use the archive as a research tool into the UK’s acid house scene.

Other brands to take part included COMME des GARÇONS Parfums — with three visual experiments designed by Matt Lambert — and Gentle Monster, which launched an installation with 3D artist Frederik Heyman. Take a look around the Reference Berlin festival in the gallery above. Lastly, CALA, Fecal Matter and Isamaya Ffrench hosted a panel discussion titled “Technology in the Age of Fashion” that looked at supply chains, sustainability and the evolution of craftmanship.
