It’s back to school after the Christmas holidays, we are full of good resolutions for the new year. Recovery is never easy, but fortunately, fashion is also making a comeback. We run to the sales before the new collections arrive. Then, the fashion shows and trade fairs for fashion professionals follow one another. Fashion Week is coming to Paris. The Haute Couture shows will take place from January 25 to 28, 2021.
Fashion is no longer just for women and Men’s Fashion Week starts on January 19.
February holidays are on the agenda. At the end of the sales, the boutiques are delivered with the collections from last year’s October fashion shows. We dress up for Carnival in Venice, Rio and Mardi Gras and we put on our best outfit for the lovers’ night.

May 1 and 8 are Saturdays this year. Fortunately, Ascension Thursday and Whit Monday allow for extended weekends. The rise of the steps of the Cannes Film Festival and the Haute Couture clothes of the celebrities make you dream.
