We all fondly remember the days when fashion weeks unfolded in a single iconic location, be it Bryant Park, Le Carrousel du Louvre, or the Natural History Museum. Yet, in life, everything follows cycles, and often, the best things return with a fresh and innovative twist.
Maison Amérique Latine stands as one of the most captivating venues in Paris, steeped in the unique history of Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Christian Lacroix hosting their shows.
This year, we may be witnessing precisely such a fresh start and new cycle in the world of fashion. Veronica Janvie, a designer and CEO of Paris Fashion Air (PFA), is launching a new platform where prominent designers can gather under one roof to create magic.
"We are striving to craft something different, harnessing the best from the past while incorporating innovations and digital technologies," says Veronica Jeanvie. PFA is a unique platform that will host designers from around the globe, providing space for international artists, showrooms, and exhibitions. Nothing quite like this exists in Paris yet, and we are confident that we are creating a very promising project. This inaugural season will see designers from Brazil, Indonesia, UAE, USA, Mexico, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and France presenting their spring-summer collections under one roof. It's not a collective show; each designer will have their runway show and production team. It's truly a one-of-a-kind service.
This season is particularly special, as some of the most prominent designers are converging on the fashion capital to captivate your senses with their creations.
