Presented by Mercedes-Benz: New designers and their fashion collections
New comers on the fashion scene present their new “Young Couture” and “Urban Chic” collections. A decisive special feature of the Cologne Fashion Days: fashion can be tried on and bought directly from the catwalk. No tiresome waiting for the new collection to arrive in the shops, no overpriced creations – a dream come true for all everyday fashion fans. In addition to the designers’ stands and the fashion shows on the big catwalk, there is also an interesting supporting programme. There will be inspiring talks on fashion, design and art, and selected experts will also give lectures on the fashion industry. To satisfy the little hunger in between, the Mercedes-Benz Center has a gastronomic offer that invites you to rest and refuel.
Over 30 fashion labels present their collections at the Mercedes-Benz Center and offer them directly for sale. The five best designers are chosen by a jury and get the coveted places on the Cologne Catwalk, during the Cologne Fashion Days.
The Mercedes Fashion Award on the eve of the CFD 2015
The cornerstone for the designer presentations at the Cologne Fashion Days is the presentation of the Mercedes Fashion Award on 3 December. The ten best designers, selected by a jury of experts from among many other designers, will be allowed to present their self-designed collections. New talents, young and old, are to be given a platform. The fashion competition is a great opportunity for talented designers. For all fashion enthusiasts who can’t get enough: The Cologne Fashion-Days will end with good music from hip DJ`s and live acts, and a corresponding after-show party.

Fri. 05.12.2015 x Live Shooting with selected CFD Designers
Friday we take the main stage! With the live fashion shoot of the CFD designers with our agency models and lighting technology, powered by HENSEL. Between fashion bloggers, fashion lovers and designers we shoot live, on-location.
Many thanks to our partner: “For over 50 years, the Hensel brand has stood for high-quality products in flash and lighting technology for photographers. The compact flash units of the Expert D series are particularly suitable for dynamic fashion photos, as they are able to freeze movements thanks to the shortest lighting times and rapid flash sequences and effortlessly play along in the demanding everyday life of fashion photographers. Combined with the huge Grand Softboxes, they provide brilliant, high-contrast light that perfectly highlights both the latest fashion creations and the models.”
