Haute couture A/W 15 has begun and so have our live panels.
This morning, we looked at Schiaparelli with the help of fashion journalist Bel Jacobs, academic Rosemary Wallin, designer Caroline Charles and Stylist's fashion director Alexandra Fullerton. The panel discussed collaborations between the art and fashion worlds, new creative director, Bertrand Guyon, and ‘awkward’ dressing couture style.
Later today at 14:30 BST, we’ll be joined by curator Alison Moloney, professor Amy de la Haye, writer Hettie Judah and mytheresa.com's creative director Paula Reed to delve into Christian Dior. They’ll be talking fashion documentaries and the ever-changing calendar of fashion along with Raf Simons’ imprint on the house.
John Galliano’s second Maison Margiela couture collection is up for debate on Wednesday 8th July at 10:00 BST. The Independent's Rebecca Gonsalves, writer and blogger Bel Jacobs, curator Oriole Cullen, writer Harriet Verney and journalist Tilly Macalister-Smith will be examining the shifting nature of showmanship as well as the position of couture in modern society.
It’s the turn of Fendi’s ‘haute fourrure’ collection at 19:00 BST on Wednesday 8th July with Sabrina Shim, Grazia's Katherine Ormerod and communications director Rosanna Falconer. Hot topics being discussed include the great fur debate, the future of couture and Fendi’s big move.
