The Frankfurt STYLE AWARD is the first international contest for many young design talents. Having the chance to demonstrate their creativity and talent in front of an expert jury at the Finale is in itself a big success and an exciting experience.

The first place winners in the categories UNIFORM, UNISEX and UNICULT are Nora Wenzlawiak with her design “Aerodynamics,” Michaela Südkamp with her design “The WoMan” and Dennis Hörtinger with “Brave new World Order.”
A very special prize was awarded to the winner of the UNITED DIVERSITY AWARD for Outstanding Talent 2014, Melissa Schulz. The winner from FAHMODA – Akademie für Mode und Design Hannover received an unforgettable fashion-trip to famous French fashion houses and a visit to the French talent contest “Festival International des Jeunes Createurs de Mode de Dinard”.
