Paris, January Fashion Weeks will take place digitally
The two fashion weeks scheduled for this month in Paris – men’s ready-to-wear and haute couture – will not see any physical shows, as the authorities have decided to maintain the ban on welcoming the public, including events managed by the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM), the organization that organizes the calendar of Parisian Fashion Weeks.The Federation insists that its two events will take place, but mainly on the Internet. “Yes, we confirm that there can be no public meetings. But our two fashion weeks will take place, and we remain very optimistic, both for the men’s season and for Haute Couture, ”confirms FHCM executive president Pascal Morand.According to him, many fashion houses are still reflecting on what exact format to adopt for their presentations – especially since brands can very well organize “real” shows broadcast live, with real models and models, as long as their events take place behind closed doors. “In France we are still under the influence of health measures, it should not be forgotten. It is a decision that comes from the Government and the Prefecture and we will respect it, of course. ”A total of 71 brands are present on the men’s fashion calendar, including big houses such as Louis Vuitton, Dior and Hermès, but also influential designer labels such as Yohji Yamamoto , Rick Owens, Dries Van Noten, Vetements, Paul Smith, Loewe and Thom Browne. The high fashion calendar foresees the presence of 32 fashion houses, including Chanel, Armani Privé and Jean Paul Gaultier.
