The Paris women's ready-to-wear week scheduled from February 24 to March 3 promises to be an exciting blend of fresh talent and leading names, with debut shows by Noir and Coperni, and a rejuvenated Kenzo.
The womenswear collections for next summer presented in New York, London, Milan and Paris showcased 10 main trends, marking a return to a pared-down fashion, though one veined with a yearning for exuberance.
Following in the footsteps of the stars of Parisian fashion, a new generation of designers was also busy making a name for itself on Tuesday, with shows from Anrealage, Afterhomework, Victoria/Tomas, Dawei and Mazarine.
The French Haute Couture and Fashion Federation has launched ‘Catwalk Calling’, a podcast series introducing the work of emerging designers. The first interview is with talented young designer Marine Serre.
New names, including Afterhomework, Ottolinger, A.W.A.K.E, as well as promising emerging labels like Marine Serre, Victoria/Tomas, Anrealage and Koché, made for an electrifying opening to the Paris season on Tuesday.
The year's second edition of Première Classe Tuileries will run from September 28 to October 1 and will go ahead without Paris-sur-Mode for the first time. It will, however, have multiple new additions.
The French runway season will start one day earlier in September, with Christian Dior opening the season with an early afternoon on Monday, September 24, according to the official calendar released Wednesday afternoon.
