Cannes Fashion Festival For 2015

I am not sure how a ‘Cannes Fashion Festival’ sounds right now. It’s not a fashion week – mostly because it will only last 2 days – but a festival that will be held during the biggest festival of all ‘Cannes Film Festival’.

The festival will run from May 20 to 22, during the film festival, and will be held in the Hôtel Majestic Barrière. It is being sponsored by Totalprestige, a British-based company that describes itself as “a private and closed circle of world executives at senior level, celebrities and HNWI.

I cannot tell yet if this festival is a good idea or not. The film festival is pretty spectacular fashion wise to itself featuring the best designers on the planet and this may cast a shadow on a two day event with younger designers in a week long of non-stop events. Or it may just turn the spotlights on something new and exciting. Imagine for a minute that Nicole Kidman’s red carpet dress was accidentally lost in the chaos of Cannes, she may send her stylist to the festival to pick a new dress from a young designer who will suddenly be acclaimed worldwide, et voila! It’s Hollywood after all, you never know.

But the more I think of it the more I believe the idea of associating movie and fashion is fantastic. After all this is what we do with BELLO mag. Tom Ford recently announced that he was moving his runway from London to Los Angeles … during the Oscars!

Let’s wish this festival all the best.

First of all, excuse my French! … I was born in the South of France. Lived in Paris for 10 years and travelled the world until I moved to Los Angeles in 2008, because obviously recession was a great time to move to a new country! I also arrived around Halloween and was greeted at the Social Security offices by a nurse who directed to the window Number 6 so a witch could hand me my social security number. Welcome to America. I am a painter, a photographer and the creative director of BELLO mag.
