Mode Ã Paris (Paris)
The Federation franaise de la couture, du pret-e-porter des couturiers
et des crateurs de mode was established in 1973.
Each year, in January and July, Paris hosts about 30 haute couture and 30
men's wear fashion shows and again in March and October over a hundred
women's ready-to-wear fashion shows. The Federation sets the shows schedules
so avoiding time conflicts to enable both the Press and the buyers to cover
the entire collections. Since 1982, the Federation has been using
prestigious places located in the very heart of Paris to present the shows:
the Cour Carre and Cour Napoleon in the Louvre, then the Jardin des
Tuileries and later the restored Cour Carre.
In 1994, the rooms of the Carrousel du Louvre were built after a project
conceived at the initiative of the Federation, the latter being in charge of
the management during collection time. Since then the Carrousel has been the
central point from which the Federation sought locations close enough one
from the other in order to save transportation time. As a matter of fact,
the Federation provides journalists and buyers with transportation means to
commute between the various fashion shows locations.
A collaboration has developed in order to organize the various show rooms
exhibiting at the same time as the fashion shows and a co-ordination of the
Milan and Paris schedules has taken place as well to ensure cohesion of the
European presentations. The schedule issued by the Federation is a strong
visibility means for the brands as it is sent to some 2,000 journalists and
to French and foreign buyers who currently attend fashion shows in Paris.
