Paris has reigned as fashion’s global capital for more than three centuries. During this time it has attracted the world’s foremost designers and seemingly imbued its citizens with an innate sense of unique Parisian style.


Twice a year the Paris Fashion Week is the finale of the big four international fashion weeks – the others being Milan Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and New York Fashion Week. Shows are held predominantly in the Carrousel du Louvre, and Paris fashion week helps dictate what the world will be wearing next season.


In this edition, we follow the paths of the most legendary Paris fashion designers whose names became Maisons, and who forever changed the fashion world and moulded its global future.
