The two Great Fashion Prize Creation of Paris


Premiere Classe will welcome the two winners of Fashion Great Prize of Paris

Premiere Classe, as a non-monetary but sponsoring supporter of the Design Great Prize of the city of Paris, is welcoming the two Fashion winners. They will be exhibiting their collections in a dedicated area during the Next edition of Premiere Classe taking place in March 2020.

On Friday the 29th of November 2019, the Grand Prix de la Création de la Ville de Paris was awarded. Amongst the 200 applications received, six candidates were selected, 2 from each sector: Art, Fashion and Design. Discover the 2 winners!

FASHION GREAT PRIZE : Valentine Gauthier

From her studies in geo-ethnology and Fashion Design to the Maison Martin Margiela studios, from the artistic director of a lifestyle concept-store to being the great winner of the International Festival of Young Fashion Designers of Dinard just before the launch of her eponymous brand in 2007 and the opening of her first boutique in 2009. Valentine's background reflects her state of mind: creative, purposeful and passionate. In 2018, she opened a flagship store in the Haut Marais in Paris, consisting of two shops and an apartment.

EMERGING TALENT : Marianna Ladreyt

French of Cypriot origin, Marianna is fascinated by Greek-style togas, myths and how these iconic, archaic pieces can be brought back to modernity. In 2017, she was a finalist in the Festival International de la Mode à Hyères, she launched her bag collection in 2018, an adventure that led to the launch of her eponymous ready-to-wear and accessories brand in February 2019. These two collections were presented during Paris Fashion Week in the Designers Apartment showroom at the Palais of Tokyo Museum.

We would also like to congratulate the other winners. In the Crafts sector, Cécile Feilchenfeldt received the Grand Prize and William Amor received the Emerging brand prize. In the Design sector, John-Baptiste Fastrez was awarded the Grand Prize and Natacha & Sacha, the Emerging prize.
