FRANKfurtstyleaward 2019: 130 young fashion designers inspired by the “HEIMAT 4.0”

Hessen-Agentur is official sponsor and donates the “Talent Award for Design & Fashion of the State of Hessen” / New jury members and attractive scholarship program sponsored by HFFA Milano

Kronberg, 15 March 2019 – The feeling for HEIMAT 4.0 has been redefined by and for Generation Z with boundless creativity. Almost 130 sketches and concepts create an impressive reflection of the search for homeland in a globalized world.

For the 1st evaluation round of the jury, about 130 entries with creative ideas of talented fashion designers have been received. For the first time not only students, but also master students and newcomers in fashion & design are hoping for a trip to Frankfurt and the red carpets in Berlin, Paris, Cape Town, and Vancouver. Prizes such as the FRANK® Trophy, the Hessian “Talent Award for Design & Fashion” with cash prizes or a scholarship in Milan are tempting.

The decision to take the FRANKfurtstyleaward 2019 into the second decade of the international contest with the motto “HEIMAT 4.0” has been rewarded with even more creativity and commitment, artistic designs and original concepts. These are primarily inspired by heritage and tradition and e.g. influenced from Tibetan nomads, Currach wooden boats from Ireland or the Ethiopian queen Mesobework. This year, the fourteen-strong jury has rejuvenated itself and brought successful designers such as Anastasia Liebe from Hessen, Waridi Schrobsdorff from Berlin and Rama Diaw from Senegal – both known for their expressive African fashion designs – to the commission.

Highlights of applications 2019

Most applications came from the “Students” level. The categories “Urban” and “Earth” are the favorite topics. In terms of nationalities, entries from African countries represent the second largest group. These include countries such as Senegal, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, South Africa, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. Most applications come from Germany with renowned schools such as Fahmoda Hannover or the Stuttgarter Modeschule Kehrer. Worldwide, 37 schools have supported their students in their applications –  including entries from Mongolia, Taiwan or the Caribbean island state of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

One of them is the Kenyan Waridi Schrobsdorff, who lives in Berlin. She founded her own company for African fashion in 2013 and has set herself the goal of redesigning African fashion and creating projects that connect the two worlds of Germany and Africa through the language of fashion.

Rama Diaw, Fashion designer from Saint Louis (Senegal) designs modern African fashion and accessories using local techniques and materials such as batik and indigo fabrics, which are mainly produced in Mauritania and Mali.
