Note that, this year, more and more designers are working as a group. Among the semi-finalists, six duos and a trio are present. Finally, this selection is illustrated by its parity: fourteen candidates and fourteen candidates, each of which illustrates in their own way the constant dialogue between female and male changing rooms, abolishing the boundaries between genders and reflecting on the principles of a wardrobe. more inclusive.
