When electric vehicles from Polestar and sustainable fashion meet, the result is what? Fast fashion of the sustainable kind. At least for one week, when Frankfurt is all about the Fashion Week and transforms the city center of the metropolis in style. Under the slogan »Reform the Future«, both the industry and the garments are to be transformed - with trade shows, conferences and digital events. A highlight guide for the Fashion Week.


The »Runway B(eautiful) Level« is the walk-in fashion magazine of Fashion Week. In cooperation with the BFF Professional Association of Freelance Photographers and Film Designers, more than 555 images by international photographers were screened. 71 works by 25 photographers will be on display - and, of course, accessible - on the B-level of the Frankfurt Hauptwache subway stop until February 10, 2022.


Twelve different locations in the city center - from the Ralf Kellenberger studio to the Hayashi fashion house and the Hilton Frankfurt City Centre to the Massif Central bookstore - are showing works by Frankfurt photographer Helmut Fricke under the title »Helmut Fricke FASHION.« He photographed all the catwalks of the world for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, from Milan to New York to Paris. His images are on display until February 27, 2022.

Polestar Space

In the showroom of the Swedish premium electric brand, designer Christine Fehrenbach presents the exhibition »Transforming Frankfurt Fashion - The Frankfurt Fashion & Design Forum« from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day until Jan. 20. Her curated exhibits range from garments to sneakers and accessories. This will also be broadcast via livestream. In addition, so-called shop window talks with the exhibiting designers will take place from 2 to 3 pm.

Webinars and Livestreams

Along with the on-site events, numerous webinars and presentations will be held. As well as a webinar on the opening day, talks on art and fashion are also planned. Another highlight is the Baldessarini Fashion Show on January 18 at 7 pm. More information and all events in the Frankfurt Fashion Week calendar:
