Fashion Week highlights and eye-catchers
Paris Fashion Week in March 2021 is the culmination of four major fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and finally Paris. In four consecutive weeks, designers and artists have presented their collections for the womenswear season autumn/winter 2021/2022 – under the shadow of the Corona Pandemic.

Ponchos made from recycled cashmere, dresses made from superfine wool gauze, the recycled Edith bags or the Sheltersuit.
