“The award was really about creative recognition. We didn’t ask for a vision of the designer’s business, and now I think it’s very important to get an idea of [their] management and commercial proposals. It’s changed a lot [in that way]. You have to be creative, of course, but you have to think about where you want to bring your brand, and to have an ambition for global development.” Nathalie Dufour – ANDAM Founder.
ANDAM Mission: Founded in 1989 by Nathalie Dufour, under the initiative of the French Ministry of Culture and the DEFI (supervised by the French Ministry of Industry), with Pierre Bergé as president, ANDAM (National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts) was conceived from the beginning as a structure for recognizing and assisting young designers on the French and international fashion scene. The founding of ANDAM constituted a decisive step forward and the first public initiative in the promotion of young fashion talents. www.andam.fr
