Paris Fashion Week opens with drama and dashes of humour
The fashion world is abuzz as Paris Fashion Week kicks off, following the conclusion of Milan Fashion Week. Over 100 brands are set to present their spring-summer 2024 collections, with a mix of runway shows and other presentations. However, the spotlight is on Balmain’s show, which comes after the dramatic theft of 50 outfits. Creative director Olivier Rousteing is working tirelessly to put together a replacement collection. Additionally, this week marks the final shows for designers Gabriela Hearst at Chloe and Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen.
Emerging designers and avant-garde styles
Paris Fashion Week’s opening day highlights emerging designers and their unique approaches. One standout is Marie Adam-Leenaerdt from Belgium, who brought a refreshing touch of humor to her show. The collection featured a mix of formal and structured outfits in unexpected colors, adding a playful twist. Victor Weinsanto, a former classical dancer trained by Jean Paul Gaultier, also showcased his work, combining elements of cabaret and high fashion. His collection ranged from extravagant wedding gowns to more structured and chic pieces.
Paris Fashion Week promises to be an exciting event, with a blend of drama, creativity, and emerging talent. Stay tuned for more updates from the fashion capital of the world.
