Thursday evening saw Valentino wrap up Couture Fashion Week in spectacular style. Beginning in Paris last Monday with Dior and Schiaparelli, the schedule saw a number of exciting moments, including the return of Balenciaga to the couture catwalk, and the welcome of Pyer Moss to the calendar, making its creative director Kerby Jean-Raymond the first Black American fashion designer to be welcomed into the couture fold.
We also saw Jean Paul Gaultier’s collaboration with Sacai revealed for the first time, something fans have been waiting for since it was first announced back in March 2020.
Some brands chose to present their collections digitally, either via fashion films or shoots, or both, while others put on physical catwalk shows with a front row filled with guests, something which feels like a bit of a novelty after the past year and a half. Almost all will were also live-streamed for audiences to watch from home.
Watch the best of the AW21 Haute Couture shows above.
