Paris Fashion Week is widely considered the height of luxury, hosting over 100 runway shows and presentations organised by the French Fashion Federation. Designers who are approved to showcase their collections in PFW are regarded with high honour, as some of the top names in the industry. This includes Arab fashion designers like Elie Saab and Tony Ward, who fronted their spring/summer 2023 collections during PFW and added to the cohort of world-renowned creative talent that debuted their new lines this season. Explore the latest collections by designers representing the Arab world at Paris Fashion Week below.
