The fashion industry can be a really unfriendly place to emerging designers. It's difficult enough for established designers to stay in the game but for emerging designers trying to launch, there are a lot of challenges. So the innovative people at Hype Productions- France, came up with a cool concept a fashion design competition, held in Paris with emerging designers from all around the world.
This summer, HYPE Fashion Show Production and Marketing, an independent boutique style company based in the South of France, is teaming up with US based, SYNERGY Events, to give unknown designers the opportunity of their lives, in the fashion capital of the world in Paris, France.
