Today is the second day of four for the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography. Held in the South of France, this is a chance for new comers to showcase their work. This year the 10 contestants (so many applicants to narrow down!) are of 9 different nationalities.
Getting your work showcased is hard in today’s fast-paced, cutting edge creative world. This festival is unique in giving unknown designers a chance to show their finished work as well as the thoughts and ideas that came first (behind-the-scenes if you will). This article from last year explains more.

This time of year just screams FESTIVAL abroad and at home. In California we just had Coachella and coming up in France is Cannes Film festival. What other festivals are going on? I need to get myself to one!!
