It seems that money can buy just about anything… including your way into Paris fashion week.
For the first time ever in the history of Paris pret-a-porter, a non-member of the Federation Francaise will present a collection this fall. And who might be the odd entry… ? None other than Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana.
The 20-year-old Thai princess, who seems to have a panel of designers at her disposal, will show 39 semi-couture pieces on September 29 at the Opera Garnier. Titled “Presence of the Past” and sponsored by the House of Balmain, the collection is a modern interpretation of traditional Thai design.
”I hope that the collection will open the doors for other Thai designers, too. It’s an opportunity to reveal to the world the skills of our fashion personnel as well as high-quality and exquisite materials that may be rare to foreigners,” says the Princess.
Will the fashion world come out to support this new entry? Or are we in for yet another royal blunder…
