Paris Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2024: Strutting the Highlights of the Runways
Paris Fashion Week dazzled with its high energy and star-studded front rows, despite the trials of unpredictable weather. Invitations became makeshift fans, and stylish showgoers armed themselves with handheld electric fans to combat the heat.
Debut Designers and Emotional Farewells
This season brought both exciting debuts and emotional farewells. Designers like Peter Do and Francesco Risso made their Paris debuts. Meanwhile, Sarah Burton’s departure from Alexander McQueen, after an entire career at the fashion house, marked a poignant moment in the industry.
Glamorous Front Rows and Hollywood Presence
The front rows were a glittering spectacle, filled with Hollywood stars such as Jared Leto, Sigourney Weaver, and Cher. The likes of Paris Hilton, Angela Bassett, and Fan Bingbing graced the runways, adding an extra layer of glamour to the shows.
Sculptural Creations and Sheer Beauty
Designers pushed the boundaries with conceptual, wearable art on the runways. Jun Takahashi wowed with live butterflies, Francesco Risso used tin cans in his creations, and Junya Watanabe explored architectural influences. Sheer fabrics took center stage at Mugler, Rick Owens, Zimmermann, and Givenchy, creating stunning, ethereal looks.
