Digital Couture Fashion Week Begins
Couture Fashion Week has begun online. This two-day event featured various designers, including Chanel, Viktor & Rolf, and Balmain. The last Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing, used TikTok to display collections along the River Seine – despite technical problems preventing full flow. Chanel found inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld and his party days from the 80s.
Viktor & Rolf recorded a video, titled Change, and display three different ‘mindsets’. Maison Valentino plans to showcase the Couture collection through live-streamed performances at Cinecitta Studios in Rome on July 21. As a teaser before the show, the designer debuted a mini film, directed by fashion photographer, Nick Knight. Christian Dior presents the film ethereal-esque, The Dior Myth, directed by Matteo Garrone.
Louis Vuitton Introduces Seasonless Events
Louis Vuitton no longer adheres to the regularly scheduled men’s clothing program, and switches to seasonless models. In a recent announcement, Virgil Abloh explained that the label would display a physical performance in Shanghai on August 6, with Tokyo following suit.
“We got rid of strait jackets that have been operated by industry,” Abloh said. This seasonless approach is becoming more popular among large fashion houses, including Gucci, who made the same move in May. This is a ‘new system’ for designers, who want to remove the brand from the status quo.

Through the People’s Place Program, we will use our platform to create opportunities and defend what is right. “- @ thomasjhilfiger This program takes its name from Tommy Hilfiger’s first store that opened in 1969 in his hometown of Elmira, New York. At just 18 years old, Tommy created People’s Place as a place dedicated to people from all walks of life. people to come together to enjoy art, music, fashion, and pop culture, formed by the cultural revolution of the 1960s, the original store developed an exchange of ideas, encouraging authentic self-expression and challenging social norms.
