BIARRITZ ROARING TWENTIES FESTIVAL: Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June 2019
The 2019 festival will be celebrating fashion with some wonderful parades in the seaside resort town centre!
Few European cities, outside the capitals, have managed to attract so many fashion talents at the same time as this small village on the Atlantic coast.
Fashion is France's number one industry, ahead of car-making. In Biarritz, today, there are over 300 shops helping adults and children to dress from head to foot.
In spring, we will be celebrating the centenary of fashion in Biarritz: 1919 set the stage for the roaring twenties with the arrival on the Basque coast of internationally famous designers such as Madeleine Vionnet, Coco Chanel, Jean Patou and Cristóbal Balenciaga Eizagirre.
In partnership with the town, an exhibition will look at the changes in fashion in Biarritz from 1919 to 2019. From 11 May to 23 June at the Saint-Eugénie crypt.
