Haute Couture Week Comes To An End With A Bang

The most anticipated fashion event of the year, Paris Haute Couture Week, came to an end on January 28. Despite the current situation, some of the biggest names in the industry still managed to put on a show and impress viewers with their unusual and revolutionary collections. Here are few highlights from the last days of the event.


English fashion designer Kim Jones brought romance to the stage as he debuted his first Haute Couture collection for luxury house Fendi.

Drawing inspiration from Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, published in 1928, and Rome’s Galleria Borghese, Jones’ gender-blurring designs made his transition into womenswear one to remember.

Demi Moore, Bella Hadid, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne all made an appearance with supermodel Naomi Campbell closing the show in a metallic print dress.

The models walked through a glass maze that eventually, as the camera panned out, was shaped like Fendi’s famous logo.

Nakazato’s collection was presented in the form of a dialogue with the model who lost her legs due to ongoing health complications.

Wasser however, rose above all challenges and embraced her prosthetic legs. She often believes that technology helped her navigate through life and made her the woman she is today.

The look for the Haute Couture show, “Atlas,” was created using cutting-edge technology known as Biosmocking, that helps generate three-dimensional textures. The new sustainable technique is revolutionizing the way clothes are created.

Viktor & Rolf

According to the duo, this show is where “Haute Couture meets underground party.”
