The Federation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has confirmed that French authorities will allow live catwalk shows in July's haute couture season in Paris; and added Pyer Moss as one of its guest members.
The clothes are still snug and cosy, but fashion designers are now dreaming of outings and parties, judging from the womenswear collections for next winter presented virtually in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
A festive mood was prevalent in the Fall/Winter 2021-22 collections unveiled at Paris Fashion Week on Monday, as Lanvin and Giambattista Valli showcased their sparkling outfits for a night out clubbing.
The opening day of Paris haute couture week ended with three experienced designers -- Giambattista Valli, Julie de Libran and Olivier Theyskens at Azzaro -- showing collections that captured the couture's energy.
This year's event featured a free, digital format and included talks from FashionNetwork.com's own editor-in-chief Godfrey Deeny, M Missoni creative director Margherita Missoni and Giambattista Valli, among others.
