The Paris Fashion Week Men’s and Couture shows have been cancelled

Alternatives to the existing fashion week model are currently being explored

With coronavirus currently wreaking havoc on all four corners of the globe, fashion has been subjected to numerous blows as countries across the world go into lockdown in a bid to stop the spread of the disease. 

Now, in news broken this evening by the Business of Fashion, the board of directors of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode has announced that the upcoming SS21 Paris menswear shows, as well as the AW20 Haute Couture shows, have been cancelled. 

Due to take place across June and July, alternative avenues which will allow Paris-based designers – including the likes of Rick Owens, Saint Laurent, and Celine – to show their latest collections are currently being explored. Watch this space.
