You’re passionate, talented, with energy to burn and possessed of the soul of an entrepreneur.
All of the above make you a perfect fit for the Maisons de Mode project.
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.
Do you want to join Maisons de Mode ? You just need to request a file. Due to the confinement, Maisons de Mode has chosen to extend the label applications until 30th June 2020. You therefore have one month to make your request, fill it out and return it to us!
Still for these same reasons, Maisons de Mode wanted to go further in the envelope reserved for the Grand Prize and this year it will go up to € 48,000 in value and will be awarded to a ready-to-wear brand and to an accessory or lifestyle brand!
If you wish to apply, don’t forget that whatever contract you will be offered at the end of the selection process, you will have to install your head office or a secondary establishment in Hauts-de-France. For brands wishing to collaborate as close as possible to the teams, they will be able to set up physically in a boutique-workshop in Lille or in Roubaix on a senior contract or in a studio at the Jardin de Mode on a junior contract.
Getting support from Maisons de Mode and benefiting from the label’s services is therefore entirely possible, even if you are not in the Hauts-de-France region: it is enough to hold the attention of the selection committee to integrate the label in affiliation!
Maisons de Mode has decided to go further to support the brands and is offering designers a global package within its Grand Prize which will be awarded this year to a ready-to-wear brand and to an accessories / lifestyle brand who will each win for a period of 12 months:
– a cash envelope of € 12,500
– personalized bimonthly support
– free access to coaching with personalized interviews with experts (digital, export, legal, collection plan, commercial prospecting, sales techniques, etc.)
– the implementation of a prototyping of the collections within the Fashion Houses workshop within the limit of 10 prototypes per season
– a residence in a boutique-workshop in Lille or in Roubaix, including the first 6 months free
– assistance at trade fairs for one session per season
– free participation in Maisons de Mode events (48H Maisons de Mode, Marchés des Modes)
