Paris Haute Couture Week Fall/Winter 2023 commenced on July 3, 2023. Celebrities from across the globe ascended in the fashion capital to grace the front-row of brands they champion.
On one hand, Paris is dealing with a humanitarian crisis caused by the untimely death of 17-year-old Nahel Merzouk, who was shot by the French Police — on the other, it’s business as usual for Paris Haute Couture Week. The streets of the city of love are roiled with riots, demanding justice for the young boy.
Fashion and its vitality almost seem unimportant at the moment, but it also happens to be a brutal business chained with millions of livelihoods. A fashion week involves months of planning, investments and vigour from brands across the world, who put in their all to be a part of this prestigious calendar.
Supporting the spirit of the fashion fraternity, A-listers from Hollywood, Bollywood and other entertainment industries marked the significant fashion week with their presence. From Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and House Ambassador Natalie Portman at Dior to Cardi B stopping the traffic at Schiaparelli — the ladies turned up in style.
As couture week continues to dominate our timelines, here are some of the best front-row fashion moments so far.
