From Joelle Diderich – WWD, July 6,2020
Still dealing with the fallout from COVID-19, French fashion houses are taking their haute couture shows online.
Paris Couture Week kicks off today with an online showcase instead of the usual lavish shows held across the French capital, as the fashion industry gradually recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, which kept many of the city’s seamstresses and skilled artisans locked out of their workshops for several months.
As a result, designers will be showing smaller collections digitally or, in some cases, no new creations at all, focusing instead on films, photos and collaborations in the hope of keeping audiences engaged. It’s fair to say there are mixed feelings about the digital format.
