Merci Paris…

The final day of the Paris Fashion Week has arrived! After a full ten days of catwalks, designers, models, and after parties, the time has come to leave the city of lights and reflect on the new trends that will invade our wardrobes next Spring.

The event kicked off on the 29th of September and the all big names of the fashion industry were there. All main French, as well as international designers showcased their latest work in spectacular shows. The main stages included shows by classical French houses Chanel, Dior, Yves St Laurent and Balmain among others and Vuitton and Hermes still to come.

The shows in themselves were flamboyant and managed to give the audience a taste of what is to come for the coming season. Although this winter, the mood is dark in the fashion world, it is set to brighten up in the Spring with a big colour comeback.

Orange and peach will come into our closets as a natural shift from the nude shades we experienced last summer. Block colours as well as prints will create an outburst of change in our sombre winter styles, as seen in Galliano and Elie Saab’s collections. All these trends are equally reflected in the traditional Alexander McQueen style reflecting his team’s tribute and keeping his legacy alive.

Of course, Fashion Week would not be itself without the traditional after parties and Lagerfeld playing host on more than one occasion. He hosted several extravaganzas, including one to celebrate his collaboration with Hogan and another one for the launch of Fendi’s new fragrance. These were a huge success and all the bold and beautiful people were there. A detailed account of the gossip and the full shows can be seen on the vogue website!

Now that it is all coming to an end, it is time to celebrate one last time in the name of fashion and wish all the designers luck to give us as good a Fashion Week next season.
