A SUCCESS FASHION HISTORY BY ACCIDENT

ladydiorIn 1995, Bernadette Chirac wished to give Princess Diana a unique handbag on the occasion of her visit to Paris. When France’s first lady contacted Dior in her search for such a bag, the House offered her a model unofficially named Chouchou at the time.

SEAN SUENThis the best of Paris Men Fashion Week 2016. The Chinese fashion designer Sean Suen is the most promising men fashion designer in the world in 2016.

Sean Suen believes that the future of menswear design emphasizes on textile development and multi-textile manipulation.
