After almost 2 years of global pandemic, physical fashion shows are back in Paris (and in other cities). Some designers still shun onstage shows and remain fully digital while others opt for a mix of physical and digital.
From September 27 to October 5, 2021, Paris remains the fashion capital of the world with 97 designers participating, 37 of which “physically”.
The most prestigious Parisian couture houses such as Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton will be among those presenting physical shows.
One noteworthy event to take place on the last day of this Paris Fashion Week: “Love Brings Love”, AZ Factory’s upcoming tribute show uniting 44 top designers in honor of Alber Elbaz. Each designer will provide a look for the occasion, a bespoke creation inspired by Alber’s legacy or a special take on an iconic silhouette. The event will be livestreamed on October 5 at 8 pm CET on AZFactory.com, on YouTube, and on Instagram.
The Paris Fashion week is also celebrated beyond couture houses and catwalks, with 3 much-awaited exhibitions at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, the Cinémathèque, and at fashion museum Palais Galliera.
Note that Palais Galliera also presents a major new exhibition celebrating 100 years of Vogue Paris magazine. Founded by Condé Nast in 1920, Vogue Paris is the oldest French fashion magazine still published today. As the capital of fashion, Paris is portrayed in Vogue as the epicentre of cultural and artistic life, and the Parisienne as the embodiment of Vogue woman… Both exhibitions start on October 2.
“Cinémode by Jean-Paul Gaultier” at La Cinémathèque de Paris will start on October 6. An opportunity to meet our iconic French designer in person during 3 movie presentations, 3 among 5 of his favorite movies, or movies he created costumes for.
“Thierry Mugler – Couturissime” at Musée des Arts Décoratifs from September 30, 2021 to April 24, 2022, goes over the works of this revolutionary and multi-talented designer…
