The two Fashion Weeks, which were scheduled to take place in January in Paris - men's ready-to-wear and haute couture - will be exclusively digital, as the French authorities decided to keep the ban on public events.
The decision to hold events in digital format was made after negotiations with the police prefectures and the French Federation of Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM), in connection with the extension of the quarantine measures that were adopted in France in December. Restaurants, movie theaters, ski resorts closed to slow the spread of Covid-19 in the country will remain closed. "Brands are also empowered to organize events and presentations, respecting the limit on the number of people simultaneously present in a given space," says Pascal Morand, CEO of FHCM ...
According to the Federation, many houses are still pondering the exact format of their presentations - largely because they still have the option to organize live fashion shows with models if their events are held behind closed doors, Worldfootwear.com writes.
