Support for young creation is included in the Première Vision DNA.
For the past 8 years, Première Vision has been actively involved with the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Accessories in Hyères. The 34th edition of the Festival will be held from Thursday 25 to Monday 29 April 2019 at Villa Noailles.
And this year again, Première Vision gives its name to the main prize of the Fashion Competition of the famous festival: the Grand Jury Prize Première Vision. More than just a financial contribution, this prize is intended to provide support throughout the year – and more particularly during the Première Vision Paris exhibition – to young talents by facilitating their access to raw materials.
The finalists will thus benefit from a privileged and supervised welcome at Première Vision Paris on Wednesday, February 13 and Thursday, February 14.
