Fashion Bite: H&M Leaves Its High Street; Announces Runway Show in Paris
January 24, 2013 § Leave a comment
It looks like the high street is coming to take over fashion week next month! Rihanna recently made an announcement of her show for River Island during London Fashion Week, and now H&M is planning to show in Paris.
According to WWD the Swedish company will debut its 25-outfit show on February 27 at the Musée Rodin during fashion week in Paris, but the show is not an official part of it. A spokesperson for H&M explained to Fashionista,
“In the past we have done fantastic and spectacular events and fashion shows with our designer collaborations and we feel it is time to celebrate our own fashion.”
The last time H&M showed a collection on a runway was in April 2005 in NYC. Hopefully the 8-year break (along with their collaborations with Versace, Comme des Garcon, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld and Maison Martin Margiela) will come with a spectacular runway event!
