Riccardo Tisci at Hyères Festival 2008

by | October 22, 2016

All satellite of fashion savvy and discoveries of young designers have long since booked their last weekend of April. For them, out of the question to be absent at hatching to light the talents of tomorrow, which will take place at the 23rd edition of the Hyères Festival. Especially since this year the event will be jury president Riccardo Tisci, creative director of Givenchy…

We remember the winner of last season, Sandra Backlund, who delighted the audience with its XXL mesh (his work is also found shortly after in the windows of Spring). Since then, the young woman seems to want to build a myth around it: it does not sell its parts, nevertheless manages to be visible in the press and continues to hand knitting incredible oversized creations…

This year, it is with pleasure that we see some major fashion players to look at the future of it. Far from their own parades and their ivory towers, designers who agree to expose Scent of a Woman as judges – and not as creators – show a large opening mind. In the end, the festival offers a time window in which the love of sewing and want to share it surpass the economic issues, even if the next winner could be the one that eventually crowd out Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy…

Anyway, the turnover will be done with or without Hyeres, so much as the creators of today can judge the competition tomorrow, and that New talents receive their critical and constructive advised masters…
