At Fashion Week, the big Parisian fashion houses are competing to hold the most spectacular show. Mademoiselle Lili can’t wait to see what they’ve dreamed up this time.
The next Fashion Week is fast approaching: At Paris’s monuments, from the Eiffel Tower to the Grand Palais, huge building sites are suddenly popping up, well protected by tarpaulins so that nobody can see what’s happening inside. Top secret so that it’s a big surprise on Day X. A fashion show only lasts 20 minutes, but for quite a while it’s been about more than the simple presentation of a new clothing collection: The bigwigs of Paris’s fashion circus are said to spend more than five million euros on their trumped up catwalks. Each one wants to outdo the other, no matter what it costs.
