When? September 27-October 5 2016
What? The popular prêt-à-porter leg of Paris’s autumn Fashion Week.
Where? Various venues around Paris
Most people at Paris’s spring Fashion Week (September 27-October 5 2016) know what ordinary mortals will be wearing a year in advance, so it's well worth paying attention. Bringing together publicists, socialites, journalists and bloggers, stylists and models, this week-long ready-to-wear event is probably the main draw for most (although it has stiff competition in the earlier Menswear and Haute Couture shows). The major runway events aren’t open to people without press passes or personal invitations, but it’s well worth swinging by the Grand Palais to go meta and ogle the week’s best dressed attendees.
