Yarns, fabrics, accessories, and manufacturing … All these precious resources help the finalists produce the collections they will present at the Festival in the spring.
To this end, the finalists are invited to the February edition of Première Vision Paris, where they benefit from privileged access to exhibitors from around the world.
Following the results announced by the Hyères Festival jury, the winner of the Première Vision Grand Prix du Jury is awarded €20,000.
