Flying Solo’s Paris Fashion Week show featured fashion collections of over 40 designers in an incredible presentation at Salon Marceau, just steps away from the Arc de Triomphe last Saturday. Their fabulous clothing, accessories, jewelry, and shoes left a packed house of top media, influencers, stylists and industry mavens in awe. For the entire afternoon of the presentation, a line wrapped around the building’s courtyard: it proved that Flying Solo’s shows have become the new scene for discovering fresh design talent from all over the globe.

Designers’ collections offered chic eyewear from Numi Paris. Thuy Designs presented a mesmerizing collection of mixed-print dresses in sumptuous satin. Their presentation gave attendees a real idea of the latest dressing trends. Other looks included eveningwear, accessories, sportswear and swimwear. Flying Solo provides young designers opportunities for retail presence at their swanky boutique in Soho, N.Y. This is a wonderful opportunity for new designers to show their line to attract showroom representation, editorials, celebrity clients and runway show opportunities during New York Fashion Week. The brand has become an industry disruptor.

“We are thrilled that our show in Paris is met with such an overwhelming response from industry insiders,” said Elizabeth Solomeina, Flying Solo’s director/founder. “We are proud to have become a top resource for industry professionals to discover emerging talent. Flying Solo is providing designers with a high-end platform to showcase collections to top tier media, influencers, stylists, buyers and tastemakers.”

Founded and operated by designers themselves, Flying Solo has proved to be one of the biggest fashion platforms launching the careers of many independent designers. It was created as a unique, curated fashion retail incubator and showroom. Operated by a selection of talented, independent designers, the company consists of like-minded, creative and connected fashion professionals. They focus on closing the gap between designers and consumers, while exposing collections to press and media. Collections are available at Flying Solo’s flagship store at 434 West Broadway in New York City, or visit https://flyingsolo.nyc/.
