The long-awaited premier of the CFD | COLOGNE FASHION DAYS 2014, a three-day trade fair for fashion enthusiasts, will take place in THE NEW YORKER | DOCK.ONE in Cologne-Mülheim from the 14th through the 16th of November. The CFD will also provide a brilliant and promising framework for the 4th edition of the highly successful COLOGNE CATWALK, which will take place on the 15th of November. The COLOGNE FASHION DAYS and the COLOGNE CATWALK both take place under the patronage of Garrelt Duin, Minister for Economic Affairs, Energy, Industry and Commerce of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. As organizer of both events, Ralf Daab and the team of the Cologne-based publishing house DAAB are particularly pleased about the cooperation with TM TextilMitteilungen, the visionary dialogue-magazine for fashion professionals and FashionUnited, a leading international industry network for fashion professionals. The CFD is aimed at ultimate consumers, while also serving as a PR and marketing platform for young designers and emerging talents. Buying agents are, of course, also welcome. Here, they can discover innovative fashion labels and order trendy new collections for their shops. With its cool industrial charm, DOCK.ONE in the Mülheim Harbour is an ideal event location for the new trade fair.
More than 30 fashion labels from Germany and abroad will present their latest collections and sell these directly to consumers. In addition to innovative designers from Germany and numerous international labels, including among others, BRACHMANN, LAROMO + PADICI or JOLONTÉ VOUS!, the local Cologne fashion scene is represented by the likes of, among others, CHANG13 and LIEV by Olivia Zirkel.
