Who will succeed Uma Oath, the 2016 Grand Prizewinner who joined the Maisons de Mode incubator/accelerator programme in Lille ?
Fragrance, jewelry, accessories, sneakers, leather goods, ready-to-wear (woman, man, children), Maisons de Mode will be offering a new Grand Prize to the best new recruit to the programme. This award will include €25,000 to be used to expand their business and to produce their collections.
It’s a fact of life that being a designer is more than just creating collections. It’s also about building a business. So it’s important to stack the deck in your favour. Maisons de Mode allows every designer joining its programme to set down stakes in Lille or Roubaix where they can further develop the their business’ structure while taking advantage of a plethora of services offered, unlike any other programme in France.
For the 2017 edition of the competition, a multiple-choice questionnaire is provided to be filled in by the candidates.
