Paris Fashion Week starts today (26.02.13), concluding four weeks of international shows.

The French capital follows in the footsteps of New York, London and Milan by showcasing the autumn/winter 2013 presentations from some of fashion's biggest names.

Alexander Wang will make his debut at Balenciaga on Thursday morning (28.02.13), having Nicolas Ghesquière in November last year, and all eyes will be on him to see what he has to offer.

Raf Simons' will show his second ready-to-wear collection for Dior the following day (01.03.13), while Hedi Slimane's next offering for Saint Laurent is sure to attract a star-studded front row.

However, Alexander McQueen is missing from the show line-up this season as creative director Sarah Burton is on maternity leave so the label will instead host an intimate presentation.

Other labels to show at PFW include Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and Isabel Marant.

Although not listed on the official Paris schedule, Swedish high street chain H&M will stage its first catwalk event in eight years tomorrow at the Musée Rodin.
