Culture Club

Couture Fashion Week Sets Off Party Time in Paris

During this season’s couture shows, fashion houses Chloé, Dior, and Miu Miu celebrate an art opening, an anniversary, and a runway party.

On Sunday, Chloé debuted its new cultural space, Maison Chloé, located next to its Parisian headquarters. The five-story house launched with French photographer Guy Bourdins exhibition Femininities, a show that comes as no surprise given Bourdin’s close connection to the fashion brand (of all the houses he’s photographed, he has shot Chloé the most). Among the guests were Judith Clark, who designed the exhibition, Isabelle Huppert, and Marc Ascoli.

To celebrate Christian Dior’s 70th anniversary, the French fashion house opened an exhibition, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris on Monday. The show will be on view through January 7 and traces the works by multiple designers who have contributed to the brand, including its current creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, as well as Yves Saint Laurent, John Galliano, Raf Simons, and the late Christian Dior.

For Miu Miu’s Croisière 2018 collection, the brand asked the design studio AMO to transform the world’s first automobile club, Automobile Club de France, into a one-stop venue for the house’s haute couture show and its afterparty. The club’s library served as a car-themed lounge to host a performance by Tommy Genesis, followed by cocktails and dinner.
