Over the last few years, the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories has become one of the most influential rendez-vous for fashion professionals and media. Internationally respected personalities have participated to its jury: Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons, Dries van Noten and Ricardo Tisci to name a few.
Every Spring in the South of France, Hyères festival takes place, spotlighting young promising artists in the field of fashion, accessories and photography. Hans Boodt Mannequins has been official partner of the festival for four years in a row (2016 – 2019).
Since 1986 the festival has promoted and supported young international fashion designers. Since 1997 a competition has also existed for emerging photographers. From 2018 a competition will also recognise young fashion accessory designers. The festival is acknowledged as the oldest fashion competition aimed at young professionals.
