Culture Mode

Culture Mode was created out of a desire to bring the worlds of culture and fashion together for events specifically crafted for fashion houses, press offices, fairs and festivals.

Through its unique approach to events planning, Culture Mode orchestrates and facilitates professional exchange among key players of both universes.

Acting as the link between luxury brands and art institutions, galleries and historic sites, Culture Mode offers its clients fresh new ideas for atypical museum visits, privileged trip itineraries and exciting cultural celebrations. Culture Mode can also help companies to identify potential sponsors and partners.

Thanks to the solid network and time-tested industry experience of the company founder, Culture Mode provides efficient and creative service tailor-made to fit every client’s needs.

Culture Mode allows its clients to stand out with bold value-added content and to forge relationships with new brand ambassadors while adhering to the highest industry standards of service and savoir-faire.

The Founder

Jimmy Pihet served as communications and press director for the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode for 15 years, thereby contributing to the Fédération’s crowning achievement, Paris Fashion Week. Before that, he worked in the men’s fashion trade fairs industry.

While building a solid network rooted in fashion and more widely in the art and culture sectors, Jimmy continued to develop his keen interest in print edition and travel. He designed and created l’Oréal Professionnel’s Paris Life Style guides and reshaped the Fédération’s Paris Pocket Guide, “little black books” filled with Parisian fashion hotspots and industry must-sees.

He has served on the steering committee of the Dîner de la Mode/ Gala Sidaction since its creation in 2002 and is a member of the supervisory board of the European Young Photography Festival, Circulation(s).
