We’re always on the lookout for pieces showcased in Paris Fashion Week (PFW), and this year is no exemption. But what date is it going to take place in 2021?
Paris, as you may already know, is one of the locations of the ‘big four’ fashion weeks in the world. The others are London, Milan, and New York.
The first Paris Fashion Week happened in 1945, but the ones organised by the French Fashion Federation — they’re still the organisers of the shows this year — started in 1973.
The first-ever PFW under the French Fashion Federation also showcased Haute Couture, Ready-To-Wear, and Men’s collections as a group, but over time, the fashion festival has allotted different dates for different categories.
