matali crasset, Ronan Bouroullec, José Lévy, studio Lacoua… Since the creation of the Prize in 1993, 150 designers have been rewarded and have developed on the French and international design scene. For its 30th edition, the Grands Prix de la Création will award seven prizes: 3 Grand Prix, 3 Emerging Talents and 1 Fashion Accessories Prize. To designate the winners of this anniversary edition, three jury presidents were selected: Inga Sempé in the Design category, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac in the Fashion category and Isabelle Stanislas in the Arts and Crafts category.
30 years and seven awards
The three Grand Prizes reward a professional for the quality of his/her project and career path, his/her development strategy, his/her commitment to the transmission of know-how or innovation. These are aimed at experienced professionals and companies and brands in advanced stages of development. The Emerging Talent Awards are intended to reward professionals with a promising project. Finally, the Fashion Accessories prize will be awarded to an emerging or established accessories project (leather goods, shoes, gloves, belts, etc.).
Each of the seven winners will receive an endowment of 18,000 euros: 8,000 euros from the City of Paris and enriched via the Fonds pour les Ateliers de Paris by private partners: the Fédération Française du Prêt à Porter Féminin, ADC, the Galeries Lafayette Group, ESMOD, Plendi by VINCI Construction, Roger Pradier, Victoire, and the Galia Group
