The Hyeres Festival: Competition for Designers & Photographers

The Hyeres Festival, 2010
I thought I'd share a post by one of my favorites, Cathy Horyn, the fashion columnist at the New York Times. This is something for the aspiring designers and photographers who are trying to break in.

The International Festival of Fashion and Photography takes place each spring at the Villa Noailles near Hyeres, in the south of France. Viktor & Rolf and Romain Kremer are among the designers who participated in the competition. Jury leaders have included Martin Margiela, Azzedine Alaia, Raf Simons and Hussein Chalayan. The Hyeres Festival is an excellent way for emerging designers and photographers to get some recognition. The deadline for applications for the spring 2012 festival is Dec. 5. So apply!

Good luck!
