FMD Residencies

This year, the Fashion & Design Festival inaugurates FMD Residencies. This component offers two artistic entities the opportunity to present and further develop their work throughout the Festival. COOLKOALA and TEAMM will thus move to the Quartier des spectacles for the FMD’s 17th edition, from August 23rd to 26th, 2017, from 2PM to 11PM.
