New agenda confirmed, new and absent: the next Paris Fashion Week will undeniably be marked by a new era. A few days before the next Paris Fashion Week, the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion unveils the official calendar of the fall-winter 2018-2019 parades that will be presented in the capital from Monday, February 26 to Tuesday, March 6, 2018.
In addition to a tight schedule, this week of fashion confirms the changes that began last season including the Jacquemus parade at opening of the ball Monday, February 26 in the evening while Dior and Saint Laurent will steal successively the next day
Newcomers and absentees
This autumn-winter season 2018-2019 will be especially marked by the first steps of Marine Serre , which will open the second day of this Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, February 27th. Suffice to say that this first collection imagined by the finalist of the Hyères Festival and winner of the LVMH prize is one of the most awaited. Arrived last season, the American Thom Browne will reiterate the experience of a show in the City of Light Another novelty: Paris will see the phoenix reborn from the ashes since the French fashion house Poiret, founded in 1904, will return to the podium after more than eight decades of absence under the leadership of its new artistic director Yiqing Yin The big absentee of this fashion week will undoubtedly be Céline, Phoebe Philo having been freshly replaced by Hedi Slimane . Another shortcoming due to recent changes in artistic direction, that of Courrèges , whose stylist Yolanda Zobel will officially take the lead on the first day of this Fashion Week, which deserts the French capital again in favor of a parade scheduled in late September In addition to the must-see Chanel , Dior, Hermès, Kenzo and Vuitton , there will also be some must-see events at Maison Margiela (Wednesday, February 28) which will be doubly honored from the beginning of March with an exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs and another at Palais Galliera. Claire Waight Keller , appointed since March 2017, will present her second collection for Givenchy. Without forgetting, the parade of the house Sonia Rykiel which celebrates this year its fiftieth anniversary.
