Star model Kaia Gerber, daughter of former top model Cindy Crawford, will be a jury member, together with Olivier Lalanne, editor-in-chief of Vogue Homme International and Olivier Gabet, director of the Decorative Arts museum in Paris.

The Hyères Festival is renowned as the oldest emerging fashion designer competition worldwide. In 2018, it recognised the Dutch duo of Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh, who were then appointed creative directors of French label Nina Ricci, and recently showed the first menswear collection for their own label Botter at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.

Past winners include Belgian designer Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of Saint Laurent, and Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf. The festival is held at the Villa Noailles, a stunning venue on the hills overlooking the city of Hyères on the southern coast of France, where exhibitions, showrooms, meetings and workshops open to the general public are organised during the event.

The festival also awards prizes in the photography and fashion accessories categories.
