Chloé supports the 2016 ANDAM Fashion Award
The Maison continues its legacy of mentoring young talent.
Since the very beginning of the Maison, which had its genesis in the 1950s in the smoke-filled café's frequented by left-bank intelligentsia, founder Gaby Aghion was devoted to supporting young talent and bold new ideas. Her legacy paved the way for bright stars such as Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo, who have made their name at the storied Maison while more recent pursuits have seen the establishment of the Chloé Prize at the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères. This year, Chloé will also be sponsoring the 2016 ANDAM prize, offering the winner of the Grand Prix a two-year mentorship under the tutelage of Chloé president Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, who is also a member of this year’s jury. The winner will be announced on 1 July 2016.
