The new FASH Logo

Since many years, the European Fashion Award FASH is one of the most important awards for fashion students. The new FASH logo expresses this growing importance. The dynamic and modern trademark arouses curiosity and stands with its sharp cut for sophisticated fashion. The logo was designed by Julie Heumüller and Lilith Zachwieja at the renowned design studio Erik Spiekermann.

SDBI – Promoting Fashion Talents since 1978
The European Fashion Award FASH is presented by the non-profit Stiftung der Deutschen Bekleidungsindustrie (German Fashion Industry Foundation), SDBI for short. Founded in 1978, SDBI is the world’s oldest organization for promoting fashion students.

The award winners have excellent career prospects. Over 40 supported talents work today for such internationally renowned companies like Adidas, Hugo Boss, Missoni or Dorothee Schumacher, for designers such as Vivienne Westwood or as university lecturers. In addition, they have often received numerous other awards.


From designers for designers

The European Fashion Award FASH is supported by SDBI, Messe München and its partners 25hours Hotels, Deeken HR, Engelbert Strauss, Formes, Lectra, Müller & Sohn, National Museums Berlin, Puma and Vitra. But it lives above all through private commitment: be it in the jury, the organization or a generous donation. The prize for the young creatives is thus largely supported by experienced creatives.

European Fashion Award FASH 2016 / 20. May 2015

Change

We are on the eve of a new era. The European Fashion Award FASH 2016 with the subject “Change” is searching for visions of a new era.
Wars, conflicts and catastrophes are not the only issues that change the way we view our world. There is no question: Digitalisation and globalisation enhance and facilitate our life, yet they also have a fundamental impact on the world. Smartphones make every networking attempt of the past look like a simple prelude. The start-up culture, shareconomy, co-creation, crowdsourcing and swapping, as well as the disruptive business models of international investors have created a completely new kind of economy. Hardly any industry remains unaffected by this change.
How can fashion react to all these changes? Should there be more adaptation, subversive strategies, or should we dream completely new dreams? Who will ride the wave of change and claim the future? More

Statements

“I have been observing the work of SDBi since its beginnings and in particular since my involvement with the jury in 2011. The evident genuine interest in new international creative talent was always the core value of the SDBI. This makes it inspirational for creatives, jury members and associates alike. Further support for future projects is vital and beneficial for both the industry and the young talent in order to further connect on a continuous basis and prepare for the tough challenges ahead.”
Torsten Hochstetter, Global Creative Director, Puma

“Visions, creativity and passion are the components with which SDBI sets sustainable signals for the future of the otherwise fast-moving fashion world.”
Laudation “Germany – Land of Ideas”

“The European Fashion Award FASH is neither a local project nor a faceless global story. SDBI does not only focus on beauty but also looks at the concept behind the fashion. We share this requirement for quality, combined with an international appeal.”
Daniel and Markus Freitag, Founders and Creative Directors FREITAG.
