HYERES 2011 - 26E FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE MODE ET DE PHOTOGRAPHIE - 29 AVRIL - 2 MAI - 2011
HYÈRES 2011 | 26TH International Festival of Fashion & Photography- April 29 – May 2 / Exhibitions from April 30 to May 29
Through parallel fashion and photography competitions, the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie à Hyères, directed by Jean-Pierre Blanc since its creation 25 years ago, gathers every year under the spotlight ten young fashion designers and ten young photographers under the patronage of an international jury.
An observatory of trends as well as an international launching pad, the Hyères festival has showcased, more than 300 first-time collections by new fashion designers from all over the world and exhibited the works of over 80 young and innovative photographers. On every edition, the festival presents at the Villa Noailles —the landmark cubist villa built in the 1920’s by Mallet-Stevens — several exhibitions that explore the permeating boundaries between art, photography and fashion.
The Festival’s public increases year after year, attracting designers, industrialists, trendwatchers, agents, buyers, textile federations, distributors, gallerists, museum directors, department stores.
The festival’s aim is to offer young talents a genuine professional opportunity by providing them with material and logistical support, as well as profitable contacts and intensive media exposure.
The general public is invited to vote after the fashion shows for an audience award.
All exhibitions are admission-free and remain open until early June.
