According to a press statement, the Americans in Paris event "provides invaluable global exposure for designers as well as sales, marketing and media support necessary to expand their respective businesses."
"Paris is an important stop on the global fashion week circuit, and with Americans in Paris, we are helping the designers meet the buyers and editors whom they might not have otherwise met," explained Steven Kolb, president and chief executive officer of the CFDA.
The showcase will be held in Paris at 63 Rue Pierre Charron. The showroom will be open from Saturday, March 2 through Monday, March 4.
The season will kick off with an opening cocktail party at the showroom on Sunday March 3, which will be hosted by model Hailey Bieber.
The initiative is sponsored by Klarna, a Stockholm-based global payments provider and newly licensed bank.
