Paris Fashion Week 2018

We can all still remember the warmness of lazy summer days while we make a transition to cooler autumn nights and slowly prepare for the coldness of winter. But fashion world never sleeps! It always looks forward, and this is why the beginning of Parisian autumn is marked by the mass arrival of journalists, photographers, fashion bloggers and celebrities. On the catwalks we will see models dressed for glamorous beaches of Côte d’Azur, presenting relaxed boho outfits for outdoor festivals, and sporting casual chic clothes for city holidays.  Spring/Summer 2018 is already coming to give us something to dream about!

 

Fashion week is a bi-annual event that takes place in each of 4 fashion capitals – Paris, New York, Milan and London. Each of these 4 cities has a unique feel, with Paris being home to the majority of main designers. Since 1973, shows in Paris are closing each Fashion Week cycle, delivering some of the most awaited collections – Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, to name just a few. The whole idea derives from fashion shows held by French couture shops for potential buyers as early as in the 1700s! That is what we call trendsetting…

Paris will be hosting its Fashion Week from September 26th 2017 until October 3rd 12. With men collection and haute couture already presented, the expectations are high! Those who wish to take part in this amazing event need to know it is a week-long full-time occupation, since the shows can run from 9am to 9pm, usually followed by after parties.

Outside of catwalk…

  • Christian Dior, Couturier du rêve

Special exhibition dedicated to one of the most prominent designers in the history will be available until January 7th 2018 in Musée des Arts Décoratifs, a museum which is worthy visiting by itself!

  • Palais Galliera – Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris

 

Since 1977 this museum is dedicated solely to fashion. Sadly, it does not hold any permanent exhibition. The museum gathered so far over 250 000 items, but due to the fragility of materials, they are only available for limited period of time, presented in turns for temporary exhibitions.

 

Currently celebrating ‘Spanish Season’ theme, the institution offers a show ‘Costumes Espagnoles. Entre Ombre et Lumière’ (‘Spanish costumes. Between Shadow and Light’). It is hosted in Victor Hugo’s house, located at legendary Place des Vosges until September 24th 2017. But soon after, on October 4th 2017, Palais Galliera will open its door to another great show dedicated to creations of Italian dressmaker from the beginning of XX century, Mariano Fortuny.
