Would you like your project to be supported by Maisons de Mode and to benefit from services the project offers?
Whether Maisons de Mode designers come from the Hauts-de-France region or from elsewhere, they all have one thing in common: they’ve presented an application to join Maisons de Mode and have emerged successful from presenting their full application and supporting materials to the selection committee comprised of fashion industry professionals.
This application allows the designer to acquaint the Maisons de Mode team with their work and their entrepreneurial vision for how Maisons de Mode can assist them, advancing the designer’s brand in distribution, production, financing, and public relations…
While presenting themselves to the selection committee, each designer should understand that Maisons de Mode offers three different contracts, of which one will correspond to the applying designer’s needs according to the selection committee. This judgment takes into account where the designer is in terms of development.
This contract stipulates the reciprocal requirements of both the designer and Maisons de Mode necessary for their collaboration to be as fruitful as possible.
The Junior Contract
This is for designers starting their brand (with no points of sale): they can benefit from the studio within the Jardin de Mode location to develop their brand strategy while having access to the various services provided by Maisons de Mode and its team.
This contract requires the designer to reside in the Hauts-de-France region, where they must also register their business headquarters and locate their business.
The Senior Contract
This is for designers more advanced in the development of their brand but who wish to gain visibility and market position through having a boutique in Lille or in Roubaix, where they can meet the general public and gain customers all while having access to the support and services provided by Maisons de Mode.
This contract requires the designer to reside in the Hauts-de-France region, where they must also register their business headquarters and locate their business to have a boutique.
The Affiliate Contract
This is for designers wanting support and advice, with a wide range of services tailored to their needs, allowing their brands to evolve in their development.
This contract is offered to selected designers not residing in the Hauts-de-France region. Nevertheless, they must register their headquarters in said region.
Designers under either the senior or junior contract are eligible to compete for the Maisons de Mode Grand Prize. This year, the awards will be:
· €12,500 for the winning ready-to-wear designer
· €12,500 for the winning accessories or lifestyle product designer
Prizes will be awarded to the most promising designers within the framework of the 48H Maisons de Mode, one of Maisons de Mode’s most celebrated events.
