The Fashion Council Germany e. V. is the lobby for fashion "designed in Germany". Founded in January 2015 in Berlin on the initiative of national industry experts, the FCG promotes German fashion design as a cultural and economic asset and supports young designers from Germany. In addition to the promotion of young designers, special attention is paid to education, sustainability and fashion technology as well as to the promotion of interdisciplinary dialogue and networking. Against this background, the Council carries out essential lobbying work in politics, business and culture, strives for visibility and emphasises the global relevance of fashion design and Germany as a fashion location at home and abroad.
