Hyères Festival 2014: Meet the 20 Short-listed Designers and Photographers

By

HYÈRES, FRANCE — This weekend, hordes of designers, curators, and editors gather at the 29th International Festival of Fashion and Photography, held since 1985 at Robert Mallet-Stevens’s historic Villa Noailles on the hills above Hyères, where red roofs tumble down slopes to the sea. This year’s edition features a jury of heavy hitters and a global selection of emerging fashion designers and photographers. Fashion jury presidents Humberto Leon and Carol Kim, of Opening Ceremony and Kenzo, oversee a panel that includes everyone from Chloë Sevigny to Spike Jonze to Maurizio Cattelan, while renowned fashion photographer Steve Hiett will work with figureheads of the photography world — from Cathy Rémy of Le Monde M to Photographers’ Gallery director Brett Rogers — to select the most promising young photographer. Click through our slideshow of 20 contestants in the worlds of photography and fashion, and see a preview of their work.
