Every year on November 25th, the major French fashion houses celebrate their ‘Catherinettes’. A tradition dating back to the 10th century, it is above all an opportunity to honor the know-how of small fashion designers through a beautiful day of presenting the houses’ know-how and the recognition of the young people who work there.

The day begins with several catwalks. After the presentation of the different creations, a jury awards different prizes, including prizes for elegance and the most original work. The hundred or so participants then go to the Hôtel de Ville for an event open to the public, where Parisians and tourists alike can admire the competing imaginative headdresses. The fashion houses then organise individual parties, at which the Catherinettes and Nicolas are showered with gifts.

We are proud to have contributed to the success of this event for Saint-Laurent.
