One of the objectives of the MMMM is to make known and support the new young generation of fashion designers, in the continuity of a Mediterranean Fashion School, as created by our masters Yves Saint-Laurent, Azzedine Alaïa, Christian Lacroix,… who were always present to support the MMMM in this strategy.

Since 2010 the OpenMyMed Prize offers its laureates a 5 days Fashion Booster Campus in Marseille, targeting the 3 fundamental needs of young fashion labels: Marketing, Commerce and Communication. The Campus is run by international experts, and its objective is to support the young fashion designers in their international development by ensuring the coherence of their 360° brand image with the definition of their identity, both in physical and digital terms. The support package for each laureate is estimated to cost €30k.

This prize is part of the OpenMyMed Festival, which acts as a shop window for the missions of the MMMM, and  whose guest of honor this year, after Yacine Aouadi (2016) and JACQUEMUS (2017) is the fashion designer Christelle KOCHER.
