ANDAM is a very important institution in the French fashion world. Chaired by Pierre Bergé, and made up of its consortium of sponsors –Pierre Bergé- Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, LVMH, thecorner.com, Swarovski, Yves Saint Laurent, Galeries Lafayette, Longchamp, Hudson’s Bay Company, OTB Group– and fashion professionals, they’ve decided this year to give their Grand Prix to Julien David. It’s a fantastic news for Paris, as Julien David represents this new digital generation, who considers fashion as a whole. You can spend hours on his Tumblr: it’s also part of his craft.
“After graduating from the Parson School of Design in 2003, Julien David successively worked for Narciso Rodriguez and Ralph Lauren. In 2008, he launched his own label, Julien David, in Japan and since then, has shown during Paris Fashion Week“.
