Dior, Hermes, Chanel say no to immediate availability after catwalk

French fashion’s governing organization — the Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode — has considered and rejected the idea of “buy now, see now” collections to which several British and American brands have already converted, according to a report in WWD.

A task force comprised of  Dior’s Toledano, Chanel president of fashion Bruno Pavlovsky, Saint Laurent CEO Francesca Bellettini and an executive vice president at Hermès reviewed the alternative format and rejected it.
