The Fashion Network has a feature today on the OPEMMYMED PRIZE competition, launched on 19 October and open to 19 Mediterranean countries.  

Each year the OPENMYMED PRIZE provides 20 laureates (10 young designers from Marseilles and its surrounding Region from the M MAJOR competition and 10 from the Mediterranean with the MFP competition) with targeted support for the 3 fundamental needs for young labels: Brand Strategy, Communications and the Fashion Trade. The support package for each laureate is estimated to cost €30k.

In 6 years the OPENMYMED PRIZE has professionally supported 71 laureates with the help of its private and public sector partners. This is to make sure that they become established in their area in a sustainable manner, develop their business on the international market, and generate as many Success Stories as possible: Charles & RonDavid CatalànFolklo by KaJanjicLa NouvelleLSongeMaid in LoveMarion VidalPaolo ErricoRula GalayiniVan Palma…
