Fashion Month is in full swing, and after New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week is wowing us with its entirely digital designer showcase. Next up, it'll be Milan Fashion Week, and before we know it, another season will come to a close with Paris Fashion Week 2021.

Below, we round up everything you need to know about Paris Fashion Week AW21...

Paris Fashion Week 2021 dates

This season, Paris Fashion Week runs from Monday 1st March up until Tuesday 9th March, a slightly shorter 'week' than usual, no doubt due to a condensed digital schedule and some designers showing at later dates.

Paris Fashion Week 2021 tickets

The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode confirmed that this season, shows would be digital only. A statement read, 'We confirm that there can be no public gatherings. Houses can still organise "real" runway shows with models broadcast live, provided that their events take place behind closed doors.'

So the good news is that you'll be able to enjoy the shows whether you're press or not, as most houses will be sharing their collections live on their social channels.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
