Coming soon to Cologne, the Cologne Fashion Days 2015 with over 40+ fashion designers and this time over 4 days! From 04.12. – 06.12.2015 at the Mercedes-Benz Center Cologne (Mercedes-Allee 1, 50825 Cologne). Fashion, fashion, trends, all this will be the topic at the “Cologne Fashion Week”. With talks, experts from the industry, fashion shows and live shoots by the model agency CM Models. Back in 2014 I visited the first Cologne Fashion Days in Cologne Mülheim and reported about it. Two nice days in the middle of fashion and design. This year everything will be a little bigger: more fair space, more days, more designers! Seeing even more CFD this year makes me very happy, because it was great!
When it comes to fashion highlights in Cologne, since last year there is only one name in the industry! The Cologne Fashion Days, CFD for short. The small “Fashion Week” is now in its second year and bigger than ever before. Spread over three or four days of the fair, visitors will find various events, from fashion shows to live shoots and model castings. Backstage reports of the CFD are available on the official Cologne Fashion Days website or on FIV | Fashion Interview.

The Cologne Fashion Days 2015 – Fashion & Highlights
Already last year the Cologne Fashion Days in Cologne were something very special. Last year you could still experience the different designers and exhibitors on two days at the fashion fair. Over ten designers exhibited at the first CFD. This year there will already be over 30. The Fashion Days will be spread over four days, including the first Mercedes-Benz Fashion Awards.
Last year, they didn’t meet at the Mercedes Benz Cente, but at the Hafengelände Mülheim. A very special location, somewhat reminiscent of a tranquil place in Berlin Mitte. In Dock one, a huge warehouse, the various young and up-and-coming designers presented their collections to the public. Of course you could also shop during the Fashion Days. Besides the designers there were also fashion shows with models, expert talks, DJs and the cocktails went like hot cakes – that’s how a fashion event has to be.
Because things went so well last year, a lot will happen in 2015, even more.

“May I say, ‘small ab oho’? The first CFD were great, nice people, colorful audience, high quality implementation. The small exhibition areas were filled with hats, dresses but also fancy shoes álla Lady Gaga. The clean white furnishing in Dock.One directed the focus exactly right: on the collections. A little more entertainment would have been nice at one point or another, a few live shoots for example, directly at the stand with exhibition pieces. How about a huge swing with a model in a long gown on it. But: I don’t want to grumble on a high level, because it was great!” Read the full Cologne Fashion Days 2014 article here.
