Andam mission

“To identify emerging talents in contemporary fashion design and offer them through its award, the means to produce a runway show during Paris Fashion Week, and to establish and develop their label in France over time, thus perpetuating the dynamism of the Parisian fashion scene.” in the words of its president M. Pierre Bergé.

Founded in 1989 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.

Since 25 years, ANDAM unites and coordinates the institutional and private players of the fashion industry to develop strategic and transversal actions in favour of young designers and Paris influence, as the world’s fashion capital.

Thanks to its expertise, ANDAM has built an international legitimacy becoming a major nationale action for the dynamism and the vitality of the French fashion creation.

The 2014 ANDAM Fashion Award is organised thanks to the valuable support of
