Young designers from throughout France are currently on something of a roll.
Unconventional is in, and the underground art scene now stretches across the country. Plastic arts, graphic design, architecture.
Creativity is teeming - at Fine Arts schools, in galleries and a vast number of hip meeting places. Mixed media are all the rage, and graphic design and music combine for very 'with it' happenings. Some places take the marriage of genres to the limit, with racks of clothes, designer décor, a DJ at the decks, artworks scattered around, cybercafés. The works.
