Paris Fashion Week is one of the four major fashion weeks. The main series of events are held in March. Here are just a few of the major highlights from Paris Fashion Week 2017.
1. All the Collaborations
There were a lot of collaborations at Paris Fashion Week. This includes the many designers who collaborated with Louis Vuitton. Junya Watanbe collaborated with The North Face and also had some reworked pieces from Levi’s and Carhartt. The amount of collaborations was shocking because most brands in the past wanted to stand out on their own. Could collaborations be the next big thing in the fashion industry?
2. Social Media Stars on the Runway
Social media is how many people find out about the latest trends. Some people have millions of follows on social media and create new trends without the help of fashion brands. However, fashion houses like Dolce & Gabbana are starting to use these social media stars as runway models. We’ve also gotten some great behind-the-scenes looks with all the social media stars at the shows.
3. Paris Jackson’s Fashion Week Debut
She was not walking in Paris Fashion Week, but she did launch her modeling career with a shoot in front of the Eiffel tower. (Although we wouldn’t go so far as to say we were “stunned.” We did still have our wits about us enough to note she appeared on the cover of CR Fashion Book.) She also made an appearance to watch the Givenchy runway show.
3. The Library at Fenty X Puma
There are rumors that the walls in the background of the Fenty x Puma show had over 1 billion books on them, which is possibly true. The show itself was one of the shows that you should have seen at least some images from. It was a blend of hip hop and school uniforms that looked straight out of a Harry Potter book. There were also appearances by Cara Delevingne and Future during the show. This was one of the major highlights of Paris Fashion Week and is most likely not going to be forgotten any time soon.
4. Nicki Minaj in Paris
There were a lot of celebrities at PFW, but Nicki Manaj stole the show at Haiden Ackermann in a (rather pointlessly re-posted) outfit inspired by Lil’ Kim. Her other appearances at H&M and Rick Owners also grabbed the spotlight.
5. Metal Lips
The photo of Kim K’s grill went viral within minute of her posting it. The designer of her grill must have gotten a lot of calls, as it made an appearance on the runways of Paris Fashion Week. There are lot items claiming to create the same look, but there is something magical about the original.
Last Paris Fashion Week was full of amazing designers and celebrities. Each year, it becomes a larger event. Here’s hoping that spring / summer 2018 is to able to create another memorable series of runways and parties.
