At the Hyères Festival, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, creative director of Chloé and chair of the event’s fashion prize jury, enjoyed an off-the-cuff conversation about contemporary fashion design with FashionNetwork.com.
On Thursday evening, a warm atmosphere and a packed Villa Noailles forecourt greeted Jean-Pierre Blanc as he inaugurated the 34th Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival, set up by Blanc himself in 1985.
The 34th Hyères Fashion Festival begins on Thursday, with a busy programme of exhibitions, shows, competition and conferences, with Natacha Ramsay-Levy as guest of honour and the Chanel-sponsored Métiers d’art Prize.
The Hyères Festivel winners unveiled a very successful first collection for Nina Ricci in Paris on Friday, sending out looks for an elegant and modern Parisienne caressed by the warm breeze of the Caribbean.
