How Haute Couture Fashion Week is impacted by the Paris Olympics
Fashion brands are finding difficulty planning for Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week as extensive preparations are made for the 2024 Paris Olympics. Traffic — both foot and car — is to be heavily impacted with metro stations shut down and whole neighborhoods closed off due to their vicinity to sporting arenas. Travel costs continue to increase for full-service hotels, impacting the straining budgets of many brands. Finding venues is also complicated, as many have already been booked for the Olympics. {Business of Fashion/paywalled}

Brands tap lawyers to deal with Matches bankruptcy problems
A host of fashion brands and suppliers have tapped in lawyers amidst Matches’ bankruptcy and administration process to receive late payments and warehouse inventory, according to WWD. No information has been given to brands regarding the inventory sold on the website. “As for the inventory on the shop floor and in the warehouse, that remains the property of the administrators, whether or not Matches has already paid for it,” WWD reported. However, legal action can’t be taken against companies placed under administration, meaning it’s likely a waiting game for creditors and brands. {WWD/paywalled}
