Possibly the most important seven days in the entire fashion year, Paris Fashion Week gathers together just about everyone who’s anyone in the world of couture from January 22nd to 29th.
While the fashion shows are for professionals in the field only, during the event the whole of Paris comes alive in a flurry of chiffon and needlessly high heels as the glitterati of the industry turn out to celebrate in inimitable style.
Across the French capital parties and events far outnumber the fashion shows and every visitor is sure to catch a glimpse of someone famous or, at the least, very thin with excellent bone structure.
Split into three sections – Haute Couture, Pret-a-Porter and Men’s Fashion – the designer’s shows will feature everything from extravagant evening wear to the latest in smart men’s suits.
Paris is considered by many to be the fashion capital of the world and is the historic home to a raft of the biggest names in the business, from Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent.
