Paris Fashion Week is a semi-annual fashion trade show held in Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, France. During the September fashion week, designers’ Ready-to-Wear, Haute Couture, and men’s Spring/Summer collections for the following year are debuted, while January’s fashion week features Fall/Winter collections.
Paris is the last of four major fashion weeks known as the Big 4, which includes New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week.
Some of the most prominent participating French design houses include Céline, Commes des Garcons, Chanel, and Lanvin. Each designer produces a runway show with its own elaborate theme that radiates artistic talent and creativity.
The Fashion Week spectacle attracts international fashion editors like Emmanuelle Alt, models like Cara Delevingne, and celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker who attend private after parties to celebrate their favorite designers’ successes.
During the week, the city comes alive with an energy that crowds local bars and restaurants with some of the most famous people in fashion, entertainment, and art eager to join in on the excitement of Fashion Week. source
The styles were comfortable and easy to wear. Looks for autumn 2013/winter 2014 came in a palette of mostly grey, black and white with lots of tweed suits woven with metallic thread, short skirts with layered hemlines and wide belts. For evening clothes, there were dresses in geometric prints.
