It was a tasteful choice of venue by designer of Saint Laurent, Anthony Vaccarello. Luckily, Vaccarello was able to wow audiences and successfully compete against the massive Eiffel Tower for attention.

Chanel's venue came in close second. The gorgeous waterfalls and peaceful, naturalistic setting complemented Chanel's pieces well. This replica of the Verdon Gorge in the south of France was enough to make Mother Nature proud. Check out Chanel's rain-ready collection below.

 

 

 

Thom's Unicorn Fantasy

 

What a magical show! Thom Browne's unicorn was most definitely a Paris Fashion Week highlight. Thom completed the ensemble with a fairy godmother who walked the runway to "Part of Your World" from Disney's The Little Mermaid. The show's whimsical and outlandish designs were a sight to see. Take a peek below.

 

 

New York at Paris Fashion Week

 

New York designer, André Walker, brought his originals back during Paris Fashion Week. His designs, created between 1982 and 1986, were a beautiful tribute to his classic talent. His pieces are still new and exciting within the fashion world three decades later. The throwback is much appreciated, André!

Creepy, huh?

 

 

 

Undercover designer Jun Takahashi closed his show with five sets of identical twins dressed in pieces inspired by The Shining. Perfect transition into October's Halloween season . . . 

 

Grab Your Dancing Shoes

 

Moncler Gamme Rouge busted a move on the runway. The designer label mixed classical ballet and violin with a hip-hop kick. Models presented lacy dresses, leg-warmers, tulle, feathers, and ruffles. Swipe through Moncler Gamme Rouge's refreshing, feminine collection that screams ballet-chic.

 

Breaking News

 

Newspaper, money, and cheetah print? Strange thematic move by Balenciaga. Brand designer, Demna Gvasalia, has kept his newspaper patterns upbeat among the real world disasters that have been flooding media outlets lately. One can only dream of Gvasalia's version of fake news!
