When Fashion Week comes to town, Paris looks even more stylish than usual, bringing hoards of designers, models, buyers, journalists, celebrities and socialite groupies with it.

On paper, it is an industry event intended for designers to showcase their collections. But in reality, Paris Fashion Week is so much more.

In addition to the runway events and trade shows, it is also an excuse for exhibitions, grand openings, promotional events and lavish celebrity-studded parties. And Paris, as one of the epicenters of the fashion world, knows how to do this week right.

The shows – about a hundred in total – span the city. The top fashion houses – Chanel, Christian Dior, Givenchy – exhibit their latest collections in style at locations like the Grand Palais and the Espace Eiffel, while smaller designers chose unique venues like hot club Le Showcase or the Weber Metaux parking garage in the third arrondissement for their shows.

Paris's strong cultural diversity is usually evident throughout the week. The shows regularly feature designers from around the world – Elie Saab from Lebanon; Sophia Kokosalaki from Greece; Alena Akhmadullina from Russia; Collette Dinnigan from Australia; Talbot Runhof and Wunderkind from Germany; and Tsumori Chisato, Issey Miyake and Iwaya for Dress 33 from Japan.

Ethnic accents are everywhere, from the braided Grecian belts on Cher Michel Klein dresses to the brightly painted African textiles from Impasse de la Defense.

Official balls and glittering parties are also an important part of the PR festivities, not to mention the hundreds of exclusive after-parties held each night. Although styles may change from year to year, when it comes to fashion - and Paris Fashion Week in particular - Paris is always en mode.
