We will remember the name of Vanessa Schindler.

This award know in the fashion industry for its vocation to discover young talents among the most promising ones on an international level, is endowed with a grant of creation of 15 000 Euros offered by the Première Vision tradeshow, a visibility at trade shows in New York and Paris, and a project of collaboration with the CHANEL House of art for 15 000 euros. Finally, a collaboration with Petit Bateau, endowed with 10 000 euros. As part of a policy to support the young creation before and after the festival, the young designer, thanks to the Formers section, will be followed for three years, as all the finalists, through the establishment of professionals partnerships with brands.
As for Wataru Tominaga, the winner of the Grand Prize of the Première Vision Jury in 2016, he created, out of competition, a new ultra colored collection created with the support of the Chanel, Lesage and Lognon Houses of art.
