After men’s fashion week was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, regular scheduling is set to begin again in September. According to a statement issued by Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, Paris Fashion Week will return in September for the women’s Spring/Summer 2021 shows.
No further details about the schedule or its participants have been released, but the shows will take place between September 28 and October 6. The Fédération’s statement goes on to add that the event “will comply for its implementation with to the recommendations of public authorities.” The physical fashion week will be run alongside a specially-created online platform.
The Coronavirus crisis has led to brands seeking new and innovative ways to present their collections for fashion weeks. London staged an online-only event earlier this month, while Burberry has announced plans for a show in the “British outdoors” in September. Both Pitti Uomo and Milan Fashion Week are also set to go ahead in September.
