Keep Your Eyes Peeled for the Big Debuts

There is a first time for everything, and this week will mark the inaugural steps of three new creative directors: Chemena Kamali for Chloé, Seán McGirr for Alexander McQueen, and Alessandro Vigilante for Rochas.

Kamali, McGirr and Vigilante are all potential ‘trailblazers’ under the scrutiny of expert eyes, waiting to see if they can infuse new life into the celebrated fashion houses they are now entrusted with defining a new era.

Will they possess the magic blend of expertise to capture the Zeitgeist, vision, and a sprinkle of luck to emerge unscathed, or will they fall under the critical gaze of editors, journalists, and fashion writers?


Prepare for the Triumphant Returns 

Paris Women’s Fashion Week FW 24 is set to welcome back brands that have been absent for a few seasons, ready to reclaim their spotlight in the fashion week arena. After a hiatus, Vetements and Off-White are set to make a bold statement with their innovative designs and boundary-pushing aesthetics.
