Ready-to-wear, autumn-winter 2023/24: Wearable art

The latest ready-to-wear collections in Paris are proof that fashion is art in its own right: mere adornment making way for extraordinary craftsmanship, show after show. At Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri celebrates the 1950s, specifically the feminism encapsulated by Catherine Dior, Edith Piaf and Juliette Greco. Stella McCartney, meanwhile, offers an equestrian treat, employing everything from mushroom fibres to recycled food waste in her quest for fashion that’s not only beautiful, but responsible. FRANCE 24 takes you to the catwalks.
