PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

Decade after decade Parisian fashion has provided women with a sense of style aspiration and without a doubt inspiration.The elegance of french women is something that always commands attention worldwide. With that said, french fashion has made some headlines in the past few weeks, but for different reasons. There has been much upheaval and discussion with regards to some of the major changes in the grand houses including Dior, Lanvin and Balenciaga. To start things off, Alexander Wang parted ways with Balenciaga and is moving on to work on his brand and other projects. Shortly after came the shocking news that Raf Simons had resigned as creative director of Dior and lastly Alber Elbaz announced recently that he was parting ways as Lanvin’s artistic director after fourteen years. Times have certainly changed in the business of fashion. It is no secret that one of the greatest challenges designers face is balancing the demand of so many shows in a year while maintaining their creativity intact. Today the world of fashion moves as fast as lightning especially now that the internet is a key factor. It will be interesting to see the direction that these fashion houses will take in the next few months. As they say, the show must go on. 

As we keep an eye on the evolution of the fashion in Paris, we also want to send our prayers and thoughts to this great city and all those that were affected by the inhumane and horrific terrorist attacks that occurred over the weekend. The strength of this great city has been tested but not broken. They will rise as tall as the Eiffel tower and shine brighter than ever before. In honor and support of the city of lights, we want to share some great fashion moments that remind us all why Parisians are unique, timeless and will always have that je ne sais quoi we love so much!
