Supima Design Competition celebrates ten years in Paris26.09.2017
All fashion and design enthusiasts know the Supima Design Competition, initiated ten years ago by Supima, an organization whose goal is to promote high quality American cotton. For this tenth anniversary, seven young designers from major American fashion schools paraded in New York on September 7 during Fashion Week. At the end of the event, it was Alyssa Wardrop who made her mark with her artistically inspired collection. The Parisian event at the Petit Palais during fashion week offered to (re)discover the finalists’ collections in this exceptional setting. With a live performance by Lou Lesage and his group Soleil Bleu and a DJ set by Cécile Togni, the evening showcased cotton thanks to a new scenography designed by the Mazarine agency. For the occasion, the cotton decorating the podium had been imported from the United States. With a parade and the exhibition of some of the masterpieces of this edition, the evening continued with a cocktail around Marc Lewkowitz, CEO of Supima, to finish at nightfall in front of the illuminated architecture of the Petit Palais.
