PARIS — More than ever, couture week in Paris is a variety show extraordinaire featuring the gamut from high fashions to ready-to-wear; fragrance to jewelry — and global brands to hard-to-pronounce newcomers.
Adding extra intrigue to the week, which kicks off Monday, Christian Dior will be the first major couture house in eons to present a collection without a name couturier, following the ouster in March of John Galliano amidst allegations of racist and anti-Semitic outbursts. The designer stood trial on the charges last month, and the High Court is to deliver a ruling on Sept. 8.
