Couture Week schedule announced

Here's what to expect

The line up for Couture Week has been announced.

Over the five-day schedule in Paris, couture regulars Chanel, Dior, Valentino and Jean Paul Gaultier will all present.

The notable absence? Givenchy. Creative Director Riccardo Tisci won’t be showing for a second season due to his busy schedule, but he will continue to create couture for personal clients.

We're excited to see what Christian Lacroix has in store this season as he's been enlisted to design a one-off collection of 15 dresses for Schiaparelli.


And of course, no exhibition of fashion is complete without a special contribution from Karl Lagerfeld.

Fendi has announced that they will mount an exhibition of his photographs called 'The Glory of Water', Karl's celebration of Rome's fountains.

As ever, ELLEuk will be there to bring you all of the extraordinary couture, backstage access and beauty.

Watch this space.
