The first day, marked by historical reverence and artistic innovation, set a high bar for the days to come.
Christian Dior and Schiaparelli were the stars of the show on the first day.
Dior, under the creative helm of Maria Grazia Chiuri, presented its Spring-Summer 2024 collection at the Musee Rodin, unfolding an intricate Ottoman tapestry of designs.
The runway, adorned by artist Isabella Ducrot’s installation “Big Aura,” featured oversized dresses reaching up to 5 metres high, reminiscent of Ottoman sultans’ attire.
The collection was a masterful blend of historical richness and contemporary style, showcasing Dior’s haute couture legacy with metallic Ottoman-style threads and a teeming tapestry of intricate blooms.
Schiaparelli, piloted by the inventive Daniel Roseberry, also brought its A-game, celebrating glamour and surrealism. The day was not just about the fashion on the runway but also about the stars who graced the event.
As we look forward to the remaining days of Haute Couture Week, we can expect more such awe-inspiring collections from other big names in fashion.
Labels like Chanel, Valentino, Elie Saab, and Jean Paul Gaultier are set to showcase their unique visions in the coming days.
Also, the event is not just about the big names. Independent labels and upcoming designers get their moment in the spotlight, promising a diverse and dynamic showcase of fashion talent.
In short, Haute Couture Week is unfolding as a grand celebration of fashion’s past, present, and future.
It’s a gathering not just of beautiful garments but of the industry’s most influential figures, trendsetters, and up-and-coming talents.
