FFW is the instigator of a sustainable movement that aims to bring about the long-term transformation of the fashion world. Acting as a platform for industry visionaries and players, FFW intends to “Reform the Future” through tradeshows, conferences, showcases, local events and the digital FFW Studio. To achieve this, Frankfurt Fashion Week has evolved a unique ecosystem – the new place to be for the international fashion trade. Sustainability and digitisation are the key motifs on the FFW agenda. By working closely with international partners, FFW is seeking to embed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the fashion industry. Four strong partners have joined together to actively champion this transformation: Messe Frankfurt, the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organiser with its own exhibition grounds, and the Premium Group, organiser of Europe’s largest fashion fair, and the City of Frankfurt and the German state of Hesse as hosts.

PREMIUM, the business platform for advanced contemporary fashion, SEEK, where the progressive fashion community creates the future, and NEONYT, the Business platform for fashion, sustainability, innovation and advanced fabrics, will form the heart of Frankfurt Fashion Week. The spectrum is completed by the new formats THE GROUND, the fashion festival for a purpose-driven generation, and VAL:UE, the home base for quality mainstream fashion, lifestyle and apparel sourcing in fashion.
