Haute Couture is a key component of France’s soft power, a way of influencing global fashion and propagating a specifically Parisian savoir-faire. Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld puts it best: “Other countries have cars and other things, France has high fashion and the best craftsmanship”. FRANCE 24 takes you to see the best shows during Paris Haute Couture Week, with Chanel installing a replica Eiffel Tower inside the Grand Palais and Dior’s models strutting their stuff outside the Invalides museum.
