Germany's major biannual fashion event will leave Berlin and move to Frankfurt.

Frankfurt Mayor Peter Feldmann said in a statement "This will transform the financial center of Frankfurt into a new hotspot for the international fashion and lifestyle scene and create a new, international fashion metropolis,".

Organised in Berlin since 2007, Fashion Week has taken place twice a year. The last edition in January drew around 70,000 visitors and dozens of designers.
