French Vogue Fetes Young Designers (PHOTOS)

French Vogue launched its Young Designers Fair in Paris on Wednesday night, featuring the work of Bouchra Jarrar, Maxime Simoens, Ligia Dias, Yiqing Yin, Olympia Le Tan, Anthony Vaccarello Damir Doma and Aberto Marani.

Editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt told the Associated Press, "I think that Vogue brings this great name, this great history to the table and we can really help out immensely just by supporting these creators we believe in. It's logical for this kind of thing to be happening in Paris, which is the world's fashion capital, after all."
