The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, French fashion’s governing body, has added a dozen new brands to its next ready-to-wear season. The first three houses to be added to its much-coveted official runway schedule include two fledgling brands, Cyclas of Japan and Rokh from Britain. The Fédération also welcomed back Lacoste, the historic French label founded in 1933.
Additionally, the Fédération announced that a further nine houses have been included in its official calendar for next season, scheduled from February 25 to March 5.
These nine new brands include Faith Connexion of France; Karim Adduchi of Holland; Kimhekim of Korea; Kristina Fidelskaya of Ukraine; Walk of Shame of Russia; Maison Mai of China; Cukovy of Hungary; Magda Butrym of Poland; and Savoar Fer from France.
