First Ever Fashion Extravaganza to Run Alongside Cannes Film Festival

This year the Cannes Film Festival will have a new rival for the public's attention.
Cannes, France Coming this May 20-22nd, the newly launched Cannes Fashion Festival will take center stage amid style and trend setters already attending the noted film festival. It makes perfect sense, after all. You have a captive star-studded audience and France is the couture capitol of the world. What could be better? Perhaps Paris Fashion Week but that's been done before!

Yours truly has been chosen as an Official Journalist for this inaugural event and offered press accreditation for the shows at Cannes.  You can see me as well as the other Journalists who will be covering the festival and offering fashion content here:

Here is an excerpt from the press release posted on the Cannes Fashion Festival Website:

Ms Laura Millet, Fashion Director of Cannes Fashion Festival said, “We are incredibly excited to announce the first ever Cannes Fashion Festival, and we have high hopes for it to become a staple on the international fashion calendar. 

The Cannes Fashion Festival will be showcasing fashion in all its vigour and diversity, and therefore welcomes designers of Haute Couture, Bridal, Lingerie, Sportswear, Jewelry, Swimwear, Accessories as well as classic Mens and Womenswear. Each designer will receive a catwalk fashion show, promotion and online brand recognition in addition to official receptions with the other designers each evening.   

Ms Millet added, “The stunning location we have chosen is directly opposite the Palais de Festival and the world famous red carpet of the highly revered Cannes Film Festival. The esteemed festival attracts thousands of celebrities and journalists from across the globe, so we thought we should take advantage of that opportunity – visitors and members of the media can now attend two amazing events in Cannes next year.” - See more at:

After attending New York Fashion Week and running live streaming video for London Fashion Week, I look forward to bringing you content from this fashion festival as well. I anticipate seeing more input from menswear designers than what is generally seen at Fashion Week both here in NYC and abroad. Looking forward to this!

Will you find me in a smokey little French bar in Cannes? Qui? No?

The Twitter/Instagram hashtag for this event is #cannesfashionf so look for it trending this spring.
