Back in January (see the MO Down for 28 January), the French government pledged its support for its struggling fashion artisans. And now at Christian Dior’s show at Paris Fashion Week, we’ve seen another show of support with politicians crowding the front row.
According to the Wall Street Journal, French Finance Minister, Christine Lagarde, and Industry Minister, Christian Estrosi, both had prime seats at the house’s show last Friday. Here at the MO Down, we like their support and investment in French fashion, and hope it continues.
