Comité Montaigne’s Sainte-Catherine fashion show
13 september 2016
An event celebrating fashion and elegance
Every year the Comité Montaigne brings the delightful Catherinettes tradition to life with a fashion show bursting with enthusiasm and creativity
The Catherinettes: A uniquely French custom
Around a hundred young women and men will present the designs they created in all the renowned luxury Maisons on avenue Montaigne and rue François 1er: Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci, Vranken-Pommery, Maison Blanche …
The event is open to the general public, so both Parisians and tourists can enjoy a unique event celebrating fashion and elegance.
Behind the scenes in the Maisons…
The “petites mains” create their hats in the greatest secrecy, each one striving to be the most creative. The event is a humorous, light-hearted and elegant showcase for the sector’s energy and the talented people who work in the ateliers and boutiques.
… What about the fellows?
The Comité Montaigne honours the 30-years-young bachelors, nicknamed the “Nicolas”. The gentlemen also join in the fun by creating unusual, entertaining hats!
