From October 1 to 3, the galerie at the Palais Royal welcomes 10 young designers made in the USA. The operation is lead by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
The operation sets up its showroom, christened "Americans in Paris" at the galerie Joyce. The ten designers presenting benefit thus from media coverage and above all from marketing and sales support. The young talents announced are: Billy Reid, Prabal Gurung, Eddie Borgo, George Esquivel, Gregory Parkinson, Monique Péan, Ohne Titel, Pamela Love, Simon Spurr and Sophie Théallet.
All have previously either won or been nominated for one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Awards prizes, which has been supporting emerging, USA based talents since 2003.
