Since 1999, the LVMH group has been a partner of the International Fashion and Photography Festival in Hyères.
This event, held in the south of France each year, offers promising young designers the opportunity to present their first collection before a jury of professionals and in presence of many fashion journalists.
The best fashion shows are awarded a prize. Some of the young fashion designers discovered during previous Hyères festivals are now pursuing professional careers in the fashion field. They include Viktor & Rolf, Alexandre Matthieu, Oscar Suleyman, Sébastien Meunier, Xavier Delcour and others.
