 - Oct 6, 2012
These Paris Fashion Week productions provide an overview of the annual event. The highly anticipated unveilings are essential to the world's haute couture crowd, and to all those who covet the artistic direction that lays behind the breathtaking sets.

Tapestry-inspired runways and luxe alpine shows have made their appearances on the Paris Fashion Week scene. Lines designed by the houses of Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac have benefited from the hype that abounds the showcasings, always attracting the top photographers, writers and videographers.

One of the best aspects of the performances is their lack of predictability. Few can expect all-laced or two-faced style displays, and it is this aspect of the unforeseen that leads crowds back to the French grounds year after year.
