Paris Fashion Week (PFW) is just around the corner.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the looks from season 3 of Emily in Paris… but I’m ready for the real deal: Dries Van Noten, The Row, Acne, Balmain, Givenchy, Chloé and many more luxury designers.

If you aren’t a magazine editor or fashion buyer, how can you watch the shows?
It’s actually never been easier to get involved in Fashion Week – whether it’s Fashion Week in Paris, London, New York or Milan.

How do you get invited to Fashion Week?
Just like other Fashion Weeks, the one held in Paris requires an invitation to attend.
You can get one directly from the team of the designer whose show you want to attend (but this means you need to know them, of course).
Or you can also have yourself accredited as a fashion industry leader. If you’re a buyer, photographer or journalist, you can apply through the PFW website.
Aside from being able to catch and document the shows, being accredited now has an additional perk: NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
In 2021, the Federation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (the organisation that holds PFW) partnered with blockchain specialist Arianee to offer select accredited guests their own NFTs, according to WWD.
Is Paris Fashion Week 2023 open to the public?
The bad news is many of the shows are still by invitation only, but the good news is that PFW is also going phygital (a mix of physical and digital) this year, so there are still some shows we can catch at home.
The schedule for the upcoming shows has already been released, and I’m pleased to share that so many of the shows will be released digitally.
You can check out the complete schedule of the shows here.
How do I stream Fashion Week?
You can stream the shows live on the Paris Fashion Week website.
When is Paris Fashion Week 2023?
Paris Fashion Week takes place from March 1 to 7 this year, when the AW23 collections will be presented.
This is the last Fashion Week to take place, following on from New York, London, and Paris.
