Just another reason to visit Cannes

If you are one of the superstars, celebrities or film makers flocking to the South of France to attend the prestigious Cannes Film Festival from May 13 to 24, make sure you don’t miss out on another star-studded event, the Cannes Fashion Festival, from May 20 to 22


The Cannes Film Festival is the most important motion picture event in the world, which attracts international heavyweights from both the entertainment and movie industries. It’s also all about glamour and fashion, so it makes perfect sense to have a fashion festival coincide with this annual event. After all, spectators are already captivated by the magnificent designer gowns that will be worn on the red carpet, and between screenings. And now they have something else to look forward to…


Featuring a selection of glamorous events and glittering runway shows, the Cannes Fashion Festival will debut for the first time this year, with invitations sent out to international designers, fashion media, industry insiders, retailers and consumers.


So what’s the reason for this fabulous fashion fest? According to fashion designer, Andres Aquino, it’s applauding and encouraging “excellence in fashion” and has been well received by the fashion industry so far. The event will showcase the creations of some top international fashion designers as well as emerging talents. It is being held at one of the most fashionable hotels in Cannes, the Hôtel Majestic Barrière, in the establishment’s Salon Croisette, from Wednesday May 20 to Friday May 22. This iconic hotel is the chosen location of many of the rich and famous who come to attend the Cannes Film Festival, and is located right opposite the Palais de Festival and the Film Festival’s legendary red carpet.


The Cannes Fashion Festival will also be ‘live streamed’ online to an audience around the world, so that those fashionistas who can’t attend will be able to participate in every aspect, including runway shows and interviews with designers. The festival includes not only Haute Couture, but also Women’s wear, menswear, lingerie, swimwear, bridal gowns, sportswear and accessories as well as jewelry. The three-day event will also highlight emerging talent through a series of competitions.


Couture Fashion Week New York and Total Prestige Magazine have collaborated together to produce Couture and high-fashion runway shows at the festival on Friday May 22.

 With more than 40,000 people expected to attend this year’s Cannes International Film Festival 2015 including more than 4,000 journalists, the Fashion Festival is also expected to attract a large crowd.
