Julien Dossena, Creative Director of Paco Rabanne, is this year’s president. His biography is pretty impressice since he’s been awarded the Prix Spécial by the Festival in 2006, along with the Prix 1.2.3.

Other juries include Marc Ascoli, Coco Capitan and Pierre Hardy. Ten finalists out of 300 entrants will be selected by the jury. Winners will be invited to present their collections at the Festival. Three of the entrants are Akino Kurosawa, Laura Boned and Rolf Ekroth.
