Paris— A paradox belies the success of French fashion: Its homegrown talent have to look abroad for business.
France might foster experimentation in fashion, Parisian style might be coveted and courted around the world and the City of Light might be fashion’s most explosive stage. But shopping for innovative fashion in France is more famine than feast, with Paris’ younger designers relying on overseas accounts, from Barneys to Bendel’s, to establish their names.
