On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the non-profit Stiftung der Deutschen Bekleidungsindustrie (German Fashion Industry Foundation), in short SDBI –, the European Fashion Award FASH was redesigned and adapted to the fundamentally changed study regulations, a new generation and the vital changes in the fashion industry.
The experience and feedback of the more than 100 prizewinners and their professors have been incorporated into the new concept.
With the new concept, SDBI as the world’s oldest organization promoting young fashion talent stays in its tradition as an engine and mediator between young designers and the industry.
