Chanel put on a spectacular fall/winter fashion show at Paris Fashion Week last week. Singer Jay Chou, his wife Hannah Quinlivan, and singer Jam Hsiao were invited this year, and they got a lot of media exposure. However, the label was criticized for allegedly cutting down old trees to turn the Great Palais into a forest for the show.

It was Taiwanese label Shiatzy Chen’s 20th appearance in Paris Fashion Week. Creative director Wang Chen Tsai-hsia turned the Dunhuang frescoes into clothing totems, and revealed an exclusive line in collaboration with Disney for the first time at the show. Her good friend Wang Shaw-lan — the publisher of United Daily News and the former owner of Lanvin — was also there, to show her support.

Established in 1889, Lanvin is the oldest French fashion house still in operation. On the eve of Paris Fashion Week, however, the fashion world was shocked by China’s Fosun International’s acquisition of the label, which has had financial difficulties in recent years.
