European Fashion Council with approved status for UNESCO
Sep '12
Have you ever wondered what the European Union is doing for the protection and promotion of the differences in cultural expression? Have you ever wondered why 5 years from the establishment of the European Fashion Council they have not yet started the series of prestigious public activities related to the official implementation of fashion and fashion design as a new cultural form to the calendar of Europe and the world?

The answers to these and many other questions are related to the construction of the vision in the culture of the European society, which began with the inspiration and political support given by the President of the European Commission, Mr. BARROSO in the beginning of his first term, which is as well the time when EFC itself was established. 

The summer of 2012 notes the period in which with the active participation of the European Fashion Council, Directorate General for Education and Culture in EU, developed strategic approach for building the overall European cultural policy, which should unite and complement the national priorities and fill the gaps in the transnational cooperation in order to distribute the creative content by surpassing the national and European union borders. 
In this difficult and complicated process fashion and fashion design received its European and subsequent world application as an innovative type of policy – a new form of cultural expression joining with its power education, economics, international relations, humanitarian and charity work, sports, music, tourism, preservation of the cultural heritage and all the other activities and causes in an incorporated  “Union of Arts and Ideas”.
For the international applicability on behalf of the EU and in their capacity as its formal institutional nongovernmental organization- innovative Think-Tank with the most current form of cultural expression, the European Fashion Council made a valuable contribution and received the highest worldwide recognition of the status of UNESCO. It is associated with full implementation of activities through the implementation of the Convention EU-UNESCO for protection and application of new forms of cultural expression that around the world are fashion and fashion design.
Among the 41 organizations which were invited, only 16 have been approved, including the European Fashion Council which is also the only recognized organization for fashion and fashion design in the world.
