The Federation numbers some one hundred members, amongst whom feature the most emblematic brands on the global stage. It comprises three Chambres Syndicales or central bodies (Haute Couture, Couturiers' and Fashion Designers' Ready-to-Wear, Men's Fashion).
The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode brings together fashion brands that foster creation and international development. It seeks to promote French fashion culture, where Haute Couture and creation have a major impact by combining traditional know how and contemporary technology at all times. It contributes to bolstering Paris in its role as worldwide fashion capital in particular coordinating Paris Fashion Week®.
New Now offers extra visibility to emerging brands. Through video modules the Fédération showcases their work and makes available their contact. New Now is available on the website but also on Paris Fashion Week® application.
Designers Apartment is an initiative of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode and is backed by the DEFI. For the past 15 seasons, around ten young talents have been selected each season by a committee made up of professionals from the sector to show their creativity and their fashion vision inside a shared showroom.
