    Where are Fashion Weeks located?

    Fashion Weeks are generally held between six months to a year before the start of the relevant season. While Paris Fashion Week remains the reference point, other cities also rival it.

    The most renowned are those in New York, London, and Milan. Together with Paris, they form a quartet known as the “Big Four,” and they are always scheduled in the same sequence. They are followed by Fashion Weeks in Beirut, Berlin, Los Angeles, Madrid, Shanghai, and Tokyo.

    Where do Fashion Weeks take place?

    The shows were originally held in couture houses. Over the years, these spaces became too narrow and unsuitable, as presentations were transformed into spectacular performances for the lucky few. Designers no longer just present clothes worn by models but also their personal universe, providing participants with a unique experience. Karl Lagerfeld, at the time with Chanel, was the driving force behind this revolution, bringing Paris Fashion Week to the Carrousel du Louvre. It was abandoned in 2010, though from then on, each house has taken temporary residence in iconic Parisian locations such as the Pont-Neuf, the Trocadéro, the Grand Palais, the Palais de Chaillot, the Oratory of the Louvre, the Jardin des Tuileries, and the Palais-Royal, as well as in more unusual buildings such as lofts and warehouses.

    Highstay apartments, located near these sites, are the perfect way to get to the shows easily and be at the very heart of the action.

    How did Paris Fashion Week come about?

    While Paris has been the epicenter of fashion since the 19th century, Fashion Week is a relatively recent and continually evolving creation. At the beginning of the 20th century, couturiers such as Poiret and Chanel began organizing small fashion shows reserved exclusively for their customers to showcase their creations in motion. The press did not attend, and photography was forbidden for fear that their designs would be copied. Gradually, these presentations were regulated by the fashion union, and each couture house was required to present 35 day and evening outfits per season. It was not until 1973 that the first Fashion Week as we know it today took place. Since then, fashion shows have grown in scope, no longer simply being held in couture houses, but have become true performances that amaze the whole world. Celebrities, politicians, and artists alike attend the shows. Seeing and being seen is another facet of these events!

    How can a brand take part in Fashion Week?

    Before submitting your application on the website of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, which oversees Fashion Week, a brand needs to make sure it meets their requirements. It must have a legal structure and have at least one marketed collection whose pieces are not just accessories.

    The Federation then holds a series of interviews to assess whether the brand can officially participate in Fashion Week. Participating in Paris Fashion Week presents a fantastic opportunity because, aside from the event's prestige, the world's attention is focused on what's being done in Paris, including that of journalists, influencers, buyers, and other celebrities who elevate the industry throughout the year.

    If a brand is not selected, it can still benefit from the aura of Fashion Week and hold its own show alongside it while waiting to be among the chosen ones.

    Staying in Paris during Paris Fashion Week

    Staying in a Highstay apartment is a unique experience, a real dive into Parisian life.

    During the special time that is Fashion Week, Paris becomes a show set to the rhythms of fashion and its protagonists, who can be seen all over the city, particularly in the Marais , the triangle d'or and the neighbourhood of the Louvre . A stay here means being an integral part of this moment, as well as giving yourself the chance to make the most of it, because Fashion Week is not only on catwalks, but also in the streets, where Street Style is king!

    It is also advisable to think about booking your accreditation with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode (FHCM). It provides access to press offices, events organized alongside the shows where partners and professionals gather, and to many other benefits, such as access to shuttles to get from one show to the next as quickly as possible. They only last fifteen minutes, so there's no need to be late!
