Last week, in the South of France thousands celebrated the 33rd International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Accessory Design at the Villa Noailles. Hidden in the hills above Hyères, guests and celebrities were pouring in and the media was overwhelmed with images.


The Festival each year revolves around an international competition open to young photographers, fashion and accessory designers including a permanent exhibition of de Noailles at the Villa, panel discussions in the garden, exhibitions in town, not forgetting the much-anticipated fashion show with thousands of spectators in the Hangar de la Mouture, in the middle of the countryside, just off the road to Salin des Pesquiers.
