You can’t get too far into a conversation about fashion without the obligatory, “ but you gotta give it up for Paris, right?” Anyone with even a budding knowledge of style history would know that the city of lights was where it all began—haute couture, Coco Chanel, the New Look: they’re basically part of the soil. But if there’s one thing Paris had been criticized for, it was its lack of support for new talent. Simply put: if the name wasn’t Lagerfeld, one would have to wait years before getting that plum design gig at an already well-established house. But recently (and some credit the demise of Galliano for it, for better or worse), a changing of the old guard started to take form, with a fresh new crop of designers slowly taking over the Paris Fashion Week schedule. This season, a ticket to Jacquemus is just as important as one to Céline.
