The 36th edition of the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion accessories, Hyères, founded and directed by Jean-Pierre Blanc will take place from October 14 to 17, 2021 at the villa Noailles, and will be presided over by Pascale Mussard.
The exhibitions will be open to the public until 28 November, with the exception of the exhibitions of the presidents of the juries, the 2O2O winners in partnership with the 19M Métiers d’art de Chanel.

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 different domains: financing, production, workmanship, materials, production, legal, media, exhibitions, workshops and residencies.

Since 1986, the festival has promoted and supported young international fashion design, since 1997 a competition has also existed for emerging photographer and this year, for the fifth time, a competition will also recognise
young fashion accessory designers. The festival is acknowledged as the oldest fashion competition aimed at young professionals.

Among the partners of the Festival there are CHANEL, le 19M, Première Vision, LVMH, Chloé, Hermès, Mercedes-Benz, American Vintage, la Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, le Défi
