IndieBerlin: What is the market about?
The market as well as the whole location will be a mixture of fairy-tale / circus freakshow, apocalypse now, coupled with high class fashion, new trends and much heart blood.
IndieBerlin: What is so special about the market compared to other design markets?
It’s turned into an extremely unorthodox concept! During the day, an indoor designer market in the Camden Town style followed by a barber shop and a seamless transition into a party night in the sense of the legendary Studio 54. A darkly colorful fairground of the colors and emotions, also during the day bands, DJs and creative-wild people. Enjoy and experience.
IndieBerlin: How did you get to the market?
We have already established our circus bar “Zum Starken August” quite well and now wanted to create another playground, where the possibility of dancing and celebrating is included. In addition, we have many friends in our environment who are based in the fashion industry. Burlesque, cabaret, variety and performances are also of great interest to us; So we sit almost at the source for special outfits and garments.
From the mix of our passion for gastronomy and style; Paired with the punk spirit and always looking for something new – the idea came to the toast Hawaii.
