Sunday,1 May Hyères, France  The jury, presided over by Raf Simons, unveils the winners: French designer Céline Méteil has won the Première Vision Prize, one of two prizes attributed in the Fashion Competition of the prestigious Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography.

Selected from among ten finalists, Céline Méteil created a collection of airy and structured origami dresses made from jaconas. This stiff and transparent cotton plainweave is ordinarily employed to create a three dimensional muslin prototype of a garment. Her highly architectural clothing entertains a dialogue with the body, building on layers of transparency and lace and shaped in subtle balance with fluid knits.

Baptised “Plié Backstage”, the collection was produced with the support of Sophie Hallette, Mario boselli Yarns & Jersey and TESJ, all PremièreVision exhibitors, and Close to Clothes, a Mod Amont exhibitor.

Céline Méteil, 32,also won the”Prix du Public”,and has worked with John Galliano, Nicolas Ghesquière (at Balenciaga) and Felipe Oliveira Baptista. At thispoint she is aspiring to launchher own brand. This is the first year that PremièreVision, the World’s Premier Fabric Show, has partnered withthe Hyères festival and sponsored one of its prizes, in the amount of 10,000 euros. But the Première Vision Prize goes beyond the awarding of the prize money to the winning young designer.

Première Vision, whose vocation is to further contacts between professionals in this most creativeof fields, is fully committed to this programme to support young design talents, and to building a longterm relationship.
