Paris Fashion Week designers wont show “in season” like US one’s


“It takes several weeks to produce fabrics. It takes some weeks to sew and embellish the garments” – Ralph Toledano


The governing body of Paris Fashion Week – the Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode – has announced that it intends to stand by the current system of showing collections six months in advance of them being available to purchase. The announcement directly opposes the recent moves made by brands including Burberry, Tom Ford, and Tommy Hilfiger which have revealed that they plan to show “in season” and make their collections available immediately.The Federation is said to have consulted its governing body to explore the idea off the back of the CFDA hiring Boston Consulting Group to investigate the potential of consumer-facing shows at New York Fashion Week, reports WWD. “There is not one person who said it was a problem,” said federation president Ralph Toledano of the current system. “Our clientele is educated and informed on how the system works.”
