Paris, the City of Light, the City of Love, home to the Eiffel Tower, home to the Louvre museum, home to Disney Land Paris, and home to Paris Fashion Week.
September marks the beginning of a spectacular time of year – when designers from four cities unveil their latest fashion designs in a remarkable month of Fashion Weeks. The month kicks off in New York, before moving to London, then Milan, before ending with a bang is the wondrous Paris.
Coco Chanel once said that “fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” With that quote in mind, it does make you wonder, how did four cities from around the globe each come to have their own Fashion Week that led to this fashion-packed month?
This may be surprising, but the first Fashion Week in the world took place in New York, not Paris. However, the idea of Fashion Week was taken from the Salon Shows [défilés de mode], or fashion parades, that took place in Paris couture salons.
Designers in Paris started showing their designs to their purchasing clients on mannequins in “fashion showings” in the 1700’s. In the 1800’s, the showings changed when Charles Fredrick Worth, the Haute Couture creator, started to show multiple, high-quality pieces.
In 1945, the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture established rules that would help to regulate and determine Haute Couture houses. They would do so by asking each Haute Couture house would present a minimum of 35 runs of daytime and evening wear every season. In 1973, the first officially recognized Paris Fashion Week took place.
That’s the story of how Paris came to have its own Fashion Week, but what designers will be showing off their latest and best designs at the end of September 2018?
Here’s what the schedule looks like according to Fedération De La Haute Couture:
Monday, the 24th of September
Tuesday, the 25th of September
Wednesday, the 26th of September

Thursday, the 27th of September
