Thank you!

Despite of al challenges of space, organisation and equipement yesterday - fashion show 'Du createur a l'entrepreneur' was a sucess! We have been getting a very positive feedback from our audience. Thank you for coming and thank you for supporting us!

We would like to thank to all great designers who were participating in the show, who with their professionalism, and beautiful collections of clothes and accessories, mostly contributed to the fact that the show was absolutely unique and gathering so many different styles.

What we were trying to demonstrate that evening was breaking a cliché about designers trapped in a sort of ‘castaway’ from the business world, and having not much to with accounting, finance and marketing. We think that on the example of our great guests we showed that these wonderful, energetic and successful people really have a lot to do with entrepreneurship, as what they are actually pursuing is a real market opportunity, which needs a realistic business model to make it work. They succeed which we hope will inspire other young designers and other persons interested in fashion, to think about their creative work not only as creators but also as businessman. Finally we would like to say a thank you to all people working with us: our beautiful models, hairdressers, make up artists, and photographers, and journalists who came here not only from France but also from Germany and from The United Kingdom. Thank you very much to the team of Frank Provost and Mr Pascal Morand for joining our project and making this evening so special. Please also mind the fact that everything what you have seen yesterday was put together by about 50 different persons working with us. Our project had 0 budget in the very beginning, and in the core there were only 5 people working on that, so we would like to thank all of them for making this happen.

Soon we will be sharing pictures from the show, so have a look on our site from time to time so you will not miss them.

Results of our sondage

For 2 months on our blog we were collecting your answers on a simple question: if all designers are also entrepreneurs? Here you will find the current results:

As you can see, not everybody thinks that what makes a real entrepreneur is the fact of creation and design. Then what is it? We will raise this question again tomorrow, on the 4th of December, during our fashion show and we will be waiting for you at 19:00 at MIX to start our creative discussion.

You have still 1 day to give us your answer and make your mark in our initiative. Can designers inspire also by being entrepreneurs? We believe that yes, and tomorrow we will show you how they do that. So get ready for that and prepare for a good show!

Designer Profile (6) - Peter McDonald

Britain, Britain, Britain…

Last but not least, we are presenting you our last designer who will feature his works during our fashion show 'Du créateur à l'entrepreneur'. He is British, but presently living in France, and with his brand - Empire’s Union - he proposes you a mixture of British-French stylish T-shirts.

Why Empire’s Union? Apparently, our British fellows seem to be quite distant from the rest of their other European colleagues. Monarchy, Monthy Phyton, Mr. Bean, Katie Prince, English breakfast... There are strong arguments indeed which prove that Britain is a very independent star in our European universe. In this meaning, the ring of stars in the logo are to represent taking part but not belonging. The graphical design entirely refers to the geometry of the star and hence what is meant by the star: proximity with priniciples, freedom, etc…

Whatever it is supposed to mean – Peter McDonald offers you some really cool T-shirts, with fancy designs and often with an interesting message to pass – to observe the world alternatively.

Apart of seeing his collection during our fashion show, you can have a look on it via website (http://www.empiresunion.com/)and you can also buy them at Sylvia Rhud Gallery on 19 Rue Pierre Fontaine in Paris (9th district).

Designer Profile (5) - Maria Aniskovich

Maria Aniskovich is a young Lithuanian designer and a fresh graduate from L’Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. During our fashion show 'Du créateur à l'entrepreneur' she will be presenting her cocktail dress collection for season spring/summer 2008, which was already featured during Riga Fashion Week.

It is said that the woman who wears ANISKOVICH lives with her own idea of time and fashion, she is a synonym of youth and contemporary Parisian elegance. What characterises Maria's designs the most are soft feminine silhouettes based on thin fluid knits, material, which flatters women’s body and is perfectly suitable for petite robe noire.

You will have a chance to see her beautiful designs on the 4th of December in MIX. Venez nombreux!

We have been there...

This is where our Organizing Committee got the recent Prix Spécial de la Fondation Ernst & Young during Journées de l'Entreprenur, with our project M!o. Thank you Ernst & Young!

New Partner - Franck Provost

We are glad to announce that our new Strategic Partner became Franck Provost!

We are very happy and pround to be working on this project together with an entrepreneur who recently was awarded two prizes for the Entrepreneur of the Year as he is setting a tramendous example for every 'entrecreateur'. Thank you for joining us!

We still encourage other entreprises to join us - if you are interested in an idea of our initiative, and you would like to help young creators and designers to become entrepreneurs, please do not hesitate to contact us (ducreateualentrepreneur@gmail.com).

Designer Profile (4) - FrenchSet

This time, we would like you to meet another participant from France - FrenchSet.

FrenchSet is a concept store around an internet community for those who like luxury (who doesn’t?:), but in a provocative and intelligent manner.

The motto for the designer is ‘prix-à-porter’, represented by the fact that these are the buyers who determine the price of a purchase. It is a matter of choice whether the price will be next put on a T-shirt or not, however what its founder is willing to provoke is the act of… irrational and superficial consumption!

This original idea was driven from the observation that there are no more ‘Yes-Yes’ consumers nowadays, so contrary to the latest trends (e.g. substantial development, fair trade, diversity etc.) in response to this changing attitude the Frenchset brand propose humor, irony and jeer.

Believe or not, but this works!
