French Fédération adds 12 new brands to RTW season
The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, has accepted a dozen new brands to its next ready-to-wear season, an unusually high intake.
The first three houses to be added to its much-coveted official runway schedule include two fledgling brands, Cyclas of Japan and Rokh from Britain. The Fédération also welcomes back Lacoste, the historic French label founded in 1933.
“The Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Féminine has the pleasure to communicate the names of the houses entering or coming back on the Official Schedule of next Paris Fashion Week,” the Fédération said in a statement on Wednesday, referring to its women’s ready-to-wear division. The Fédération is made up of three divisions. The other two cover menswear and haute couture.
Additionally, the Fédération announced that a further nine houses have been included in its official calendar for next season, scheduled from February 25 to March 5.
The new names are the following: Faith Connexion of France; Karim Adduchi of Holland; Kimhekim of Korea; Kristina Fidelskaya of Crimea; Walk of Shame of Russia; Maison Mai of China; Cukovy of Hungary; Magda Butrym of Poland; and Savoar Fer from France.
Including menswear, women’s prêt-a-porter and haute couture there are six full runway seasons annually in Paris, the world’s most important fashion capital.
