The Follow the Sun! pop-up this year is all set to feature ready-to-wear, swimwear, accessories, and summer essentials by handpicked Arab designer brands. Alongside the Cannes film festival, the sixth edition of the summer pop-up event will take place at Tamaris Plage on the famous Croisette street in Cannes, France. Between July 6 and 18, the sun-drenched traveling concept aims to connect potential like-minded shoppers with a curated roster of contemporary luxury fashion brands.

Conceived and produced by Paris-based PR and consultancy agency Giorgia Viola Communication, the event in Cannes, strategically located in the Palm Beach at Tamaris Plage, is a meeting point overlooking the bay and Lérins Islands, following successful editions held at Hotel Brach in Paris, Grand Bellevue Hotel in Gstaad in the Swiss Alps, and Nikki Beach in Dubai.
