The laureate of the OPENMYMED PRIZE competition in the 2016 M MAJOR category, Mélina Carbonaro from Aix-en-Provence, presents her 2017/18 Autumn-Winter collection at the Panorama Berlin Fashion Trade Show, thanks to the partnership put in place by the MMMM.
Discover her career so far, up to Berlin.
1.) Why are you participating in the Panorama Berlin Trade Show and what are your objectives here?
I am participating in the Panorama Berlin trade show with my label Mademoiselle Socialite so that I can get to know the German market and meet buyers.
2.) You were a laureate of the OPENMYMED PRIZE competition in the 2016 M MAJOR category. What did you get from your year with the Maison Méditerranéenne des Métiers de la Mode (MMMM) ?
My M MAJOR year with the MMMM helped me develop my label, particularly with the excellent quality coaches we had, and the global overview of my work it provided. The year with the MMMM was full of incredible opportunities, like my participation in the Who’s Next trade show last September and the visit to Chanel's Métiers d’Art craftsmanship workshops.
3.) Since then, what are your projects, what are you doing now? What development strategy did you have?
I have developed my network of boutiques in England with an agent, and I am planning to present my 2017 Spring-Summer collection with a runway show!
