Welcome to the 14th edition of Cracow Fashion Week! The biggest fashion event in Krakow and Malopolska with an international reputation. Cracow Fashion Week has been organized since 2007. From 18 to 26 March you can take part in several events: fashion shows, photography exhibitions, and online lectures and workshops! Do not miss it!

Cracow will become a real Fashion Capital!

Cracow Fashion Awards (CFA), a competition for graduates of the Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design, inaugurates nine days of fashion shows, exhibitions, and meetings.

An international jury of renowned fashion and media personalities will award the SAPU statuette for the best collection at the CFA Gala. Young designers from Italy, Ukraine, Lithuania, Hungary, Montenegro, China, and Romania will present their collections in the guest section.

SAPU Graduation Show will take place in a new venue on the cultural map of Krakow – CKF_13 Conference Centre Fabryczna.

Innovation in Design

The Cracow Fashion Week (CFW) promotes artists, fashion designers and photographers from various countries, as well as new technologies in fashion: 3Dfashion, NFT, and Metaverse. ‘Innovation in Design’ is a good leitmotif for this idea. Responsible fashion and CSR are other slogans for this year’s events, which correspond with current needs and trends worldwide.

European Fashion Weeks and Polish fashion events :

The SAPU graduation show is an opportunity to meet and exchange experiences between representatives of many Polish and foreign institutions, including fashion schools and organizers of the European Fashion Weeks.

In the CFW 2023 will participate: The Budapest Central European Fashion Week, Feeric Fashion Week (Romania), Montenegro Fashion Week, Lviv Fashion Week, Contemporary Art and Fashion Festival VIRUS (Lithuania), Wroclaw Fashion Week, Lodz Young Fashion, Fashion Night, Polki Folki (the largest folk fashion show in Poland) and Nadwiślański Fashion Week.
