Each finalist was allocated a team of models for the weekend, which allowed them to build a rapport with their new 'muses' over the three days. The designers presented their collections and inspirations to the jury and answered questions; later they had the chance to present to the press, festival-goers and the public of Hyères in the fashion show concepted and directed by top casting director Maida Gregory.
