Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week returns to the stage July 2, when designers, buyers and fashionistas descend on Berlin for four days. Tops on our list of must-see catwalk events: Michalsky StyleNite.

Berlin may not be the first city to come to mind when people talk about high fashion, but after six years of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week events, the German capital has grown out of its infancy and into an inspiration for burgeoning players in the fashion industry. Drawing not only local celebrities, but also top designers like Stella McCartney, who’s hosting a Design for Tomorrow event as part of the Spring/Summer 2014 showings, Berlin’s become a force to be reckoned with.

Having gained a reputation as the most avant garde of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week events, Berlin proves the perfect venue for Finnish haute couture designer Satu Maaranen to make her international debut. Using a mixture of innovative materials, from silk, cotton and viscose to grass, sawdust and sand, the designer creates not only unique garments, she handprints and designs the textiles herself. The results are an invaluable collection, which is why DHL is excited to have been entrusted with the delivery of all Maaranen’s garments from her home in Finland to the tent in Berlin.

But Maaranen’s not the only designer we’re proud to be working with. In continuing our long-running partnership with Berlin-based luxury sportswear designer Michael Michalsky, we’re able to bring you front row access to the hottest event in Berlin’s fashion calendar. Join us here for a livestream of Michalsky’s Spring/Summer 2014 StyleNite event, online July 5, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. CET
