FRANKfurtstyleaward 2019 – Open for Students, Master Class and Newcomer

Age limit of 35 years is rescinded / application deadline ends February 28, 2019

Kronberg/Frankfurt, February 5, 2019 – The 11th call for entry for the FRANKfurtstyleaward is already in full swing and has attracted active participation by alumni, students and nearly 1000 schools from all over the world. The registration deadline runs until the end of February 2019. The finale on June 29, 2019 with fashion shows and awards ceremony will – for the first time – take place at Tendence, the trade fair for consumer goods for your home — furnishing, decorating, gifts, jewelry, fashion supplies, kitchen and home textiles — in Frankfurt am Main.

For the first time, participation is split into three categories: STUDENTS, MASTER CLASS and NEWCOMER. What in the past ten years has only been reserved for fashion and university students is now being extended to three categories due to popular demand: master students and newcomers with their own label, as well as alumni and finalists of past FRANKfurtstyleawards – without any age restrictions. The shows of the 20 TOP designs in the finals at Tendence will be staged on June 29, 2019 in the marketplaces: “Urban”, “Adventure” and “Earth” before a festive AWARD ceremony with the finalists of the competition and guests from fashion, design, industry, culture and society.
