 The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, revealed that fashion houses from five countries will join the official calendar of the upcoming season, currently scheduled to take place from Monday, September 28 to Tuesday, October 6.
As already noted, the happening Paris brand AMI, and the Gabriela Hearst, the acclaimed Uruguayan designer based in New York will be part of the ten talents showing during Paris fashion week.

All told, four new French names will appear on the next Paris Fashion week, featuring spring-summer 2021 women’s ready-to-wear – besides AMI there will be Ester Manas, Vejas and Mossi, the Pierre Bergé Prize winner, founded by designer Mossi Traoré. While S.R. Studio from  the United States, the fledgling fashion brand of Sterling Ruby, the fabric artist who has been a long-time collaborator with Raf Simons, brings to three the number of American-based brands joining the Fédération’s schedule. Also from LA, 
Enfants Riches Déprimés – noted for its flamboyant unisex posh punk aesthetic.

In another coup for Paris, the critically lauded Post Soviet label Situationist will make its Paris runway debut. Founded by Irakli Rusadze in 2015 in his native Georgia, Situationist’s architectural aesthetic and powerful silhouettes should guarantee it makes an impact on the French scene.

The City of Light will also welcome Cecilie Bahnsen, the Copenhagen-born talent whose blend of romantic sophistication and high quality finish have already won her a top-level following among key international fashion boutiques and lovers of the intelligent avant grade.
The season will mark the return to Paris of Grace Wales Bonner, the brilliant young London tailor, whose experimental meditations on the meeting of black culture and British style have made her one of the UK’s most powerful designers. Back in 2016 in Paris, Wales Bonner won worldwide attention by winning the LVMH Prize, the first individual woman to take the 300,000 euro award.
