11.30 am / GASTRONOMY AND ITS TRENDS ?

Moderated by Olivier Assouly, Directeur de la Recherche et de l’Edition, Institut Français de la Mode

One would think that the world of gastronomy is completely different from the world of fashion. Afterall, gastronomy seems to be anchored in timelessness, tradition, regional territory, history, patrimony, roots and identity. Fashion, on the other hand, seems to echo the instant of today, nomadic culture, the ever-changing new trends, the changeability of taste, the globalization of consumer habits and the rise of brand names. Yet, gastronomy has some links to fashion – those that produce or influence ingredients, techniques of cooking , places and eating trends. To this extent, it is important to look at gastronomic trends of the past and present, from the era of Louis XIV (the Grand Siècle) to what we call molecular cooking. We have the opportunity to do this with several specialists along with Michel Troisgros.

4 pm / PHOTOGRAPHY : THE END OF AN ERA OR A SECOND YOUTH ?

Moderated by Michel Mallard, Directeur de création, Photographe, Paris

The end of the 20th Century saw the photographic medium blessed by museums and the international art market. Photography became a rare art form. Yet the beginning of the 21st Century witnesses the emergence of new forms of creativity, those that are less constraining, more independent, notably thanks to the explosion of the Internet. The designer or the artist now takes lead, expresses himself or herself in blogs, self-publishes work and builds communities. This bulking up of creativity, this eclecticism, of a creation that straightforwardly embraces all forms of expression is what this discussion plans to explore in bringing together a photographer, a blogger, an editor and a curator.

Speakers

Jason Evans, Photographe, Londres ;

Marc Feustel, commissaire d’exposition, blogger, Eyecurious, Paris ;

Winfried Heininger, fondateur et directeur de création, Kodoji Press, Baden ;

11 am THE MEDITERRANEAN : CREATIVITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND BRANDING

Moderated by Dominique Jacomet, Directeur général, Institut Français de la Mode

The countries on the southern coast of the Mediterranean are well-known for their apparel industry. What these companies produce is generally exported to countries on the northern coast of the Mediterranean. But these North African countries also boast numerous resources in creativity and artisanal craft that can be developed and whose production could lead to new commercial ties with French and European brands and designers. Craftsmanship and creativity can thus bring new perspectives to Mediterranean countries. The key issue is how to leverage this potential new positioning in a way that will complement and enhance the already strong apparel industry in these countries. This round-table discussion will use Morocco, a land of expert craftsmanship and creativity, as the case study for this subject.

Speakers

Maurizio Galante, Créateur, Grand Couturier  ;

Rabih Kayrouz, Créateur, Membre invité Haute Couture  ;

Sylvie Richoux, Directeur développement, Casa Moda Academy, école supérieure de création de mode de Casablanca, Maroc  ;

2.30 pm / DESIGNER PARFUME : THE DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN OPPORTUNISM AND CREATIVE EXPRESSION


Moderated by Anne-Sophie Breitwiller, Sémioticienne, Sociologue chargée des enseignements de parfums et cosmétiques

The perfume industry was once traditionally dominated by couture and cosmetic brands. Yet since 1990, designer labels have notably entered the sector. Year after year, the number of perfume launches has been increasing widely. Today, it has become a logical, natural and pretty much obligatory step for a fashion brand to enter the fragrance industry. This lecture will look at the springboards behind this diversification ; how the perfume industry works ; what the launch calendar is like ; and, opportunities and risks. We will bring designers and managers from both the fashion and fragrance industries together to discuss this subject.
