Entries are closed, the finalists are in the Fashion Fusion Lab Phase now.
The challenge is open for start-ups, entrepreneurs, engineers, fashion designers and students of the fashion, design and technology scene from all over Europe and beyond. You can apply individually or in teams.
A high-caliber jury made out of our renowned partner ecosystem with experts from technology and fashion selected the best ideas and approaches from the many entries in three pre-set categories: Connected Devices & Smart Accessories, Haute Couture & Show Fashion, and Business Solutions & Smart Services.
With our coaches and trainers, who are prestigious specialists from the nexus of cutting-edge fashion and technology, we empower finalists to develop quality prototypes of their concepts in the Fashion Fusion Lab Phase in Berlin and other cities.
The prototypes will be demonstrated at a Fashion Fusion Award Ceremony to be held during Berlin Fashion Week in July 2018, at which the final winner will also be announced. The best team will win a cash prize of 15,000 Euros and the opportunity to bring its creation on as far as the market readiness, with the help and support of Deutsche Telekom and its partners.
