Camille Boillet, winner of the LVMH Young Talent prize in February 2016 during the “Cultures et Création” fashion show in Montfermeil, took part in the Green Showroom, a sustainable fashion event held each year during Berlin Fashion Week.
The “Cultures et Création” fashion show in Montfermeil offers a fresh and positive perspective of challenged urban neighborhoods. LVMH has sponsored the event for the past six years. This year the LVMH Young Talent prize went to Camille Boillet. In addition to a grant enabling her to purchase materials, she has been coached by LVMH teams, and had a chance to meet couturiers in the Dior atelier to prepare for her presentation at the Green Showroom. Held in conjunction with Berlin Fashion Week, the Green Showroom spotlights sustainable fashion.
Camille Boillet took advantage of her presence in the German capital to showcase her work at a booth and in the opening fashion show, during which she presented two creations, a dress inspired by Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire perfume, and a wedding dress designed for brides with a disability. Her work received an enthusiastic response from attendees during the closing runway show: for the first time a model came down the runway in a wheelchair, wearing a dazzling white gown that amazed and delighted the public.
