Who’s Next – Our first trip to Paris Fashion Week

Come for Breakfast

We’ve been to London, we’ve been to Tokyo, we’ve been to Madrid, we’ve been to Berlin, obviously, visiting each cities official Fashion Weeks. But never have we been to the mother of all Fashion Weeks and the one that is still considered the most important one in the world: Paris Fashion Week. The biggest trade shows take place here and the most important international brands and designers have their shows in this beautiful city. The whole affair in fact is so huge that it gets split in three parts: Menswear Fashion Week, which sadly always coincides with Berlin Fashion Week, the Haute Couture Week that happens right after and finally the main Womenswear Fashion Week a few months later.

But this season it’s actually going to happen: iHeartBerlin.de goes Paris Fashion Week thanks to the Who’s Next trade show, the biggest one of its kind, who invited us over to take a look at what’s going on in Paris. We’re super excited and can’t wait to go over their this Friday. We’ll be covering our findings on the trade show on a daily basis and of course we’ll also use the opportunity to check out a few other events during Paris Fashion Week. To find out a little more about Who’s Next Paris you should read on after the jump.

The Who’s Next Prêt-à-Porter Paris trade show is actually six trade shows in one taking place in the expo halls Port de Versailles in the South of Paris.

FAME and PRIVATE are the two sections dedicated to all types of ready-to-wear womenswear section exhibiting over 700 brands. Two familiar names I found in the line-up were Kilian Kerner and Arrey Kono from Berlin.

MR. BROWN is the section of urban and menswear with about 300 brands such as Camper, Dr. Martens, Vero Moda and Paul Frank.

And then there is the PREMIERE CLASS for accessories, MESS AROUND for shoes and LE CUBE for leather goods and luggage.

Of course we wouldn’t be iHeartBerlin.de if we didn’t have our focus once again on avant-garde and young designers. So we are particularily interested to meet all the winning designers from the Who’s Next Blog and from Arts Thread, such as the Italian avant-garde label Come for Breakfast. Also, we’re very curious about the catwalk shows taking place at the tradeshow that will present the most important items and designs of the season. So stay tuned for our coverage starting this Saturday.
