Unless you have lived under a rock so far, you undoubtedly witnessed Fashion Week being all over the place, and moving fast. You started off checking out some pictures from New York and woke up the next day to find out the whole party has already moved on to London. What? You hadn’t even picked the outfit to be photographed in yet. And then everybody was in Milan, and now Milan is wrapping up as we speak. Fashion is tough.

Now, the ‘January of Fashion’ is nearly over and there is just one more Fashion Week to go. Which starts today. So let’s get cracking. Are you telling me you are going to miss Paris Fashion Week again? I am afraid not.

Here is your practical guide to Paris Fashion Week, because you’ll need all the tools to keep up.

Where my designers at?

Paris Fashion Week is considered one of the classiest fashion appointments of September — in large part, because it’s in France. But it doesn’t end there: Paris Fashion Week hosts some of those designers from the Olympus of designers. Aka the big guns. Let’s name some names: Chloé, Dior, Elie Saab, Céline, Hermés.

Be excited for:

  • Alexander Wang‘s last show as the head of Balenciaga, likely to go out with a bang;
  • The city getting a makeover, including light shows on the tower and posters;
  • The shows going back to the Carrousel du Louvre;
  • More of Raf Simons, creative director at Dior since 2012 and protagonist of the awesome documentary Dior and I;
  • The Row back on French territory.
