Céline Méteil is a finalist in Les Étoiles Mercedes-Benz, a competition for young designers

Céline Méteil, LISAA Fashion alumnus, was spotted along with eight other designers and then invited by Alexis Mabille and Mercedes-Benz to create a silhouette that highlights the automobile luxury embodied by the brand.

A JURY PRESIDED BY ALEXIS MABILLE


Les Étoiles Mercedes-Benz, a programme launched by the brand and dedicated to fashion, invited nine young, promising and inventive designers, chosen from a selection of 30 designers, to create three silhouettes to highlight the automobile luxury that is embodied by the brand.

Céline Méteil, graduate from LISAA fashion in Fashion Design/Pattern Making, is one of the nine finalists selected by the jury presided by Alexis Mabille—who was approached by the brand for his talent and sensitivity towards young designers—and made up of personalities such as actor Jalil Lespert, model and actress Audrey Marnay, journalist Alexandra Golovanoff, fashion stylist and editor Vanessa Metz and designer Betony Vernon.

CÉLINE MÉTEIL, EXPERIMENTATION WITH MATERIALS AND INNOVATION


Céline Méteil learnt from the best, including Alexander McQueen and Felipe Oliveira Baptista, whom she met during her studies. She also undertook a work placement at John Galliano. Nicolas Ghesquière inspired her to experiment with fabric and innovation in couture while she was at Balenciaga. The avant-garde designs of her "Plié-Backstage" collection saw her awarded with the Première Vision Award and the Public Award at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography in 2011.


I was very happy to see that imagination still takes pride of place for young French designers and I’m proud to be able to showcase their talent.

Alexis Mabille, president of the Étoiles Mercedes-Benz jury

Alexis Mabille: “I was very happy to see that imagination still takes pride of place for young French designers and I’m proud to be able to showcase their talent in this competition, which might surprise many people.” From materials to symbols, designers drew their inspiration from the brand’s identity.

THE WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED 4TH OCTOBER


To coincide with the next Prêt-à-Porter session of Paris Fashion Week (Spring Summer 2017), the nine finalists’ designs will be revealed to the press on 4th October in Paris, at a venue that has not yet been revealed.

During this event the jury will announcer the winner of the "Les Étoiles Mercedes-Benz" prize. They will receive 15,000 euros as well as long-term support from Mercedes-Benz.
