Jewelry designers to join Paris haute couture shows
Tuesday 24 November 2009
The Fédération de la Couture Française announced November 23 that its haute couture fashion week will include 'haute joaillerie' collections for the first time.
Luxe jewelry brands such as Boucheron, Cartier, Chanel Joaillerie, Chaumet, Christian Dior Joaillerie, Mellerio dits Meller and Van Cleef & Arpels will all present their bejeweled pieces on appointment.
Up to this point, the world's leading haute couture week had been reserved for dramatic fashion shows presenting out-of-this-world creations by designers including Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy, or Chanel.
"This union of two exceptional 'savoir-faire' will create a real luxury week," the Fédération said.
January 28 (the fashion week's next edition takes place January 24-28) has been dedicated exclusively to the jewelers' craft.
