Hi Everyone,

One thing I always find with Paris Fashion Week Runway shows is that the trends seen here appear earlier than anywhere else. Milan Fashion Week Runway shows depict almost one for one what we’ll be wearing next season. Paris gives us a preview of trends in the more distant future.

Guy Laroche had a totally original approach this season with “Transform 20.21”. Creative director Richard René took vintage pieces from the 80’s, transforming them using  exclusively in-house materials. More about this further down.

This season we saw Down being used  to create entire outfits. Moncler (Founded in France in 1952 with current headquarters in Rome), have been trying to tell us this will happen for some time. Now in Paris we saw a glimpse of the “Down” future.

Designer Casey Cadwallader featured leather at Mugler for FW20. Featuring a mix of leather bodysuits and gowns with sheer or nude panels. Interesting to note too the diversity in models chosen. Proving to the world that anyone can look great in their collections, you don’t have to be paper thin!

Chinese designer Dawei showcased rich wool fabrics, cinched waists and tartan fabrics  – one of my personal favourite collections this season.

Keep on scrolling for a pictorial view of “Runway Highlights & Vintage Transformation at Paris Fashion Week FW 2020”. Covering 3 shows plus the Guy Laroche presentation.

In a protest to the current wastage of clothing creative director Richard René took Guy Laroche transformed real vintage pieces.  Going one step further he did this using  exclusively in-house materials…

Did you know that in 2019, 39 million tons of clothing were thrown away worldwide!

The red leather jacket above was converted to a totally new look in black.

Even more imaginative the conversion of an originally white garbardine raincoat to the black coat pictured above right with patent leather drops.

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything! I am also a Mum of a cute teenager (dare I say it).

  1. Oh how I do love to look at runway fashions! To be so creative must be a dream. I am not sure how I feel about the Dawei boob belts though. I feel like those knit belt things would be super cute around the waist though. They look misplaced around the bust. But who knows, maybe boob belts will be the next hot trend! Thanks for sharing this fun post and the beautiful images!

    1. Thanks so much Shelbee – I must say I agree with you on all accounts also on the boob belts 😉 But maybe it’s a matter of getting used to something new…I always ask myself this when I initially think I really am not a fan of something …hehehe 😉

      Have a wonderful day, Yvonne
