HYERES, France — Underlining its status as an international launchpad for new fashion talent, more than 400 industry professionals plus 200 journalists flocked to the 23rd International Festival of Fashion and Photography held here from April 25 to 28.
Over a sun-soaked weekend, 10 fashion designers, whittled down from 250 candidates initially, impressed a jury presided over by Givenchy's creative director, Riccardo Tisci, who declared half of the designers could easily have shown at Paris Fashion Week.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
