The AFA-Austria Fashion Awards, which have been given annually since 2000, carry large amounts of award money intended to
be used for specified purposes. They aim to substantially assist the medium-term development of designers careers.
These awards, sponsored by the Federal Austrian Ministry for Education, Arts and Culture, the City of Vienna, the Vienna Economic Chamber and Unit F should, apart from the well-deserved recognition, also have a structural effect and systematically speed up the career steps as well as the international positioning of young fashion designers.
With an overall 45,000.00 EUR of award money, these official Austrian fashion awards rank among the most important and most highly endowed in the entire Austrian field of design.
