FRANKFURT STYLE AWARD FOR INTERNATIONAL FASHION DESIGN
The Frankfurt STYLE AWARD is an international contest that rewards innovation in fashion design.
Over it’s eight years in operation the award has challenged emerging designers to show their creativity, originality and innovative spirit through the award’s selected themes.
This year the theme is PIONEERING DESTINY and calls for young talents to show innovation and a pioneering spirit by transcending limitations and creating new from old.
“Transcending barriers lies within the core concept of our very being. We all long to shake off the chains of limitation in order to pave the way to a visionary future. Each and every one of us is a pioneer, who breaks new ground more than once in a lifetime courageously moulding humanity and the life of future generations to come.”
The Frankfurt STYLE AWARD 2015 invites all upcoming designers to showcase their artistry under the motto PIONEERING DESTINY and in one of the three categories.
Almost 200 years ago, the Industrial Revolution demolished existing structures in society, resulting in a working class of blue collared workers, who built the world as we know it today. Since then, society has continued to develop at a rapidly growing pace. Boundaries like obstacles exist to be overcome. Where will the turbulent trip take us next? What are we to expect from industry 4.0?
Sustainability is the buzzword of our generation. It is much more than just a trend; it is about the future and survival of our planet. Technological advancements are reflected in all areas of our society: even within fashion design. With beauty and creativity, “Sustainable Design” should attract the masses. Even here, creativity has no limits: Recycling becomes UPcycling. Everything that already exists is just waiting to be transformed into something better.
OVER THE RAINBOW
A destination for freedom, happiness or inspiration: the rainbow serves as a symbol for the unattainable. The journey to ultimate happiness becomes the destination itself during our search for the “rainbow’s end”. We will never reach the “pot of gold,” but that doesn’t hinder our continuous quest for happiness. And isn’t that the ultimate fate of humanity – the pursuit of happiness?
Designers from all over the world are invited to enter their designs for the 8th FRANKFURT STYLE AWARD.
You can submit your applications with sketches and concepts ideas within the categories “Blue Revolution,” “ECOlogical Green” and “Over the Rainbow.”
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 16th 2015.
Supported by the Italian Chamber of Commerce, Italy is the invited partner country for 2015.
Once again, the Fraport AG will host the Frankfurt STYLE AWARD Gala in Frankfurt Airport.
