Talent incubator, educational support and Marseille fashion showcase, MMMM combines a number of facets in order to "identify and assist future stars" of the fashion world. "What we seek is a symbiosis with Paris. Where luxury is characteristic of the capital, Marseille is more an adept of urban fashion," says its president Matthieu Gamet.
So, while the 2015 edition of the Mediterranean Fashion Prize, dedicated to the promotion of young designers, was launched in March, the spokesman of this non-profit association is already pondering new possibilities. Among them, the creation of a biennial fashion festival conceived as an important springboard for aspiring designers in the region.
Workshops, conferences, exhibitions, catwalk shows etc. could well emerge in 2016, for a two-month program of events in emblematic places around the city. The fulfillment of an ongoing objective that the MMMM and its president pursue once more, "to impose Marseille as the capital of creation in the minds of all."
