Guest fashion designers Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron
If one thing is certain, it is that Emmanuel Macron is a man of his time. One could even go so far as to say that in this whirlwind week that is Paris Fashion Week, the French President managed to organize the most exclusive event there is. To celebrate the success of Paris Fashion Week, Mr Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron invited all major French ready-to-wear and haute couture designers to share an exceptional dinner cooked up by Guillaume Gomez, who is Head Cook for the Elysée. All the great names who make fashion in Paris (and elsewhere) were gathered, starting with the “president” of the fashion planet: Anna Wintour. There was also Haider Ackermann, Clare Waight Keller, Alber Elbaz, Yiqing Yin (who revived the Poiret house this season), Giambattista Valli, Julie de Libran or Simon Porte Jacquemus. The President and the First Lady took turns speaking to salute the know-how that contributes to France’s influence abroad under the motto #ChooseFrance. Brigitte Macron took advantage of this moment to pay tribute to Azzedine Alaïa who, would have without a doubt been the first to rejoice at this historic event.
