Design Parade will be opening its 2019 edition in both Toulon and Hyères, from June 27-30. Created in 2006 by Jean-Pierre Blanc—the founder of the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories at Villa Noailles—the Design Parade expanded in 2016, with a separate interior design edition held in Toulon. Villa Noailles and Mobilier National (National Furniture) officially presented the competition finalists and the two juries, which will be chaired by architect François Champsaur in Toulon, and Mathieu Lehanneur in Hyères (they’re succeeding Pierre Yovanovitch and Philippe Malouin from last year). In addition to exhibitions inaugurated with the festival (open to the public until September 29), the 2019 Design Parade has new features, including a prize in collaboration with Chanel and a National Furniture Prize that will allow the winner to complete a residency in view of creating an original work.
