Flying Solo Presents 30 International Designers Steps From the Arc de Triomphe
Represented by The Riviere Agency.
Designers from across the globe presented collections with Flying Solo at La Galerie Bourbon in Paris, a few meters away from the Arc de Triomphe Thursday with guests lining up down the street waiting for a glimpse of the runway presentation due to COVID capacity limits.
The presentation featured collections of womenswear, menswear, accessories, jewelry, and shoes from 30 designers from around the globe showcasing their new collections. Designer’s collections offered something for every taste from stunning evening wear to accessories to elevated streetwear. The presentation gave attendees a window into looks trending from all corners of the globe. Trends included: vibrant prints, florals, tule, color blocking, avantgarde details seen in both jewelry and clothes styled by creative director and head stylist Alina Kotsiuba.
In the five years since its creation, Flying Solo has become a staple in fashion-forward SoHo, and “is proof that a collaborative model offers the flexibility and resources independent designers need to survive and thrive in the face of difficult times” said Flying Solo co-founder and executive producer Elizabeth Solomeina.
Flying Solo is a curated fashion incubator, giving designers opportunities for retail presence at their luxury boutiques in Soho, showroom representation for editorial and celebrity pulls and runway show opportunities during New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. The brand has become an industry disruptor leading to praise from top media outlets from Vogue Italia to Elle.
