Paris Fashion Week 2020
Paris is one of the Meccas for fashion victims, and the Paris Fashion Week 2020 is something you must live if you love fashion and you are in Paris during those days of the year. Also, Fashion Week is a tradition, since it was established in 1945 by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture to have the best regulation of the Haute Couture houses.
In the beginning, Fashion Week rules were applied mostly to Maisons. But, during the last years, rules became very important to models too. The latest rules are about the minimum body mass index, and models must be over 18.
There are many rules to join Paris Fashion Week and, of course, you must have that something to be part of that shining elite of famous and talented designers. But, if you would like to participate in this huge event just as part of the public, I would like to help you figure out how.
Paris Fashion Week 2020 is one of the most important Fashion Weeks in the world! It is part of the so-called Big 4, the 4 most important fashion weeks that are held in London, Milan, New York and, of course, Paris!
