The 39th edition of the International festival of fashion, photography and accessories – Hyères, will take place between Thursday 10th and Sunday 13th October 2024 at the villa Noailles. The exhibitions will be open to the public until January 2025.
Jean-Pierre Blanc is both the founder and the director of the festival which will be presided over by Pascale Mussard. Since 1986, the festival has promoted and supported young international fashion designers, since 1997 a competition has also existed for emerging photographers and, since 2016, a competition also recognises young fashion accessory designers.
The festival is acknowledged as the oldest fashion competition aimed at young professionals. Several prizes are awarded to the competing designers thanks to grants provided by the festival’s partners who commit, together with the festival, to provide long term support. Practical assistance is provided right from the selection stage as well as during a period of two years in various domains: financing, production, workmanship, materials, production, legal, media, exhibitions, workshops and residencies.
Once again in 2024, the faithful partners of the Festival are committed to support the next generation of designers: CHANEL, le19M, 7L, Première Vision, LVMH, Hermès, Mercedes-Benz, American Vintage, la Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, DEFI, Galeries Lafayette, L’Atelier des Matières, Sheriff Projects, Kitten, Alliance For European Flax-Linen & Hemp, Kering, Sterling…
