What fashion shows and presentations are on the agenda on the sidelines of Paris Fashion Week?

According to Jean-Luc Godard, “the edge is what holds the pages together.” Similarly, Paris Fashion Week, which takes place from Monday, February 26th to Tuesday, March 5th, 2024, includes both the fashion shows and presentations organized by the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM), as well as other events , which take place on the sidelines of the official program. Like rave parties, you have to gather the information yourself; The following selection therefore makes no claim to completeness.

In a time when some fashion shows are too much of a focus (ad nauseum?), and in a world where codes are changing, this almost underground aspect (where creation is encouraged) has a real appeal. In this context, it is important to mention the work of the Moddity platform and that of the publicists who fight to give visibility to those who are less in the spotlight. Perhaps it is precisely this dark side where the greatest surprises can be found. Please note that at the time of publication, the FHCM had not yet announced its ‘Events’ section, which includes, among other things, the “Welcome to Paris” program.

I try to make the absurd chic.”
