Asian fashion is set to make a splash at Paris Fashion Week, which kicks off in the French capital today.

An eagerly awaited show, according to the Fashion Network website, will be that of Japanese label CFCL (Clothing For Contemporary Life). The brand was founded in 2020 by sometime Issey Miyake designer Yusuke Takahashi and is taking to the runway in Paris for the first time.

Chinese designers will be represented at the Shenzhen Futian Fashion Day and by the Hong Kong Fashion Guerilla project. The former takes place at the Palais Brongniart and features luxe women’s wear brands Ellassay, Yiner, and La Koradior. Meanwhile, “one size” outerwear designer Chen Peng’s fall-winter show takes place at the American Cathedral in Paris on 1 March.
