At the festival's last edition, the fashion jury was headed by Schiaparelli style director Bertrand Guyon, who also took advantage of the festival to announce the brand's relaunch. Footwear designer Pierre Hardy was chosen to lead the jury of the first edition of the festival's accessories competition.
