CEOs and designers in Paris fashion are praising Emmanuel Macron for taking decisive action this week in the struggle to control corona virus, even as the industry braces for a disastrous second quarter.
Emmanuel Macron fêted fashion creativity with a gilded dinner inside the Élysée Palace on Monday night, praising the imaginative foreign elements in the industry, but picking out Jean-Paul Gaultier for special praise.
Paris FW - AMI set the ball rolling on Tuesday night with a chic, festive show at Le Trianon theatre, celebrating the label’s 9th anniversary, 9 also being the lucky number of its Creative Director Alexandre Mattiussi.
Few French designers are in better shape today than Alexandre Mattiussi, whose AMI show Tuesday evening in Paris was a brilliant statement of how less can be – in the hands of a skilled practitioner – infinitely more.
Just when you thought that the dark mood over Paris caused by 'yellow vest' protests would cast a shadow over the menswear season when along comes a brilliant celebration of the beauty and élan of the capital city.
