The Fashion Council Germany and its for pillars

The FASHION COUNCIL GERMANY was founded in 2015. It is a special interest group for German fashion. The objective is to promote and establish German fashion as a cultural and economic asset as is normal in countries such as United Kingdom and France.

This is achieved through specific support for young German talent with a joint management of national activities, strengthening the awareness of German design at home and abroad. The awareness of German fashion and German designers has to be improved. National industry has to be interconnected with German fashion designers and startups.

The FASHION COUNCIL GERMANY is the point of contact for German fashion design with the responsibility of the political, media, cultural and industrial lobby work.
