The Must Anticipated Alexander Wang/Balenciaga Debut Will Be 'Intimate'

One of the biggest and most anticipated events of Paris Fashion Week is Alexander Wang's debut at Balenciaga.

Considering it an "introductory season," the French fashion house told WWD it would unveil the fall collection "in an intimate atmosphere" and a "salon-style format." The clothes will be shown in front a smaller than usual audience on models, rather than a larger over the top runway show.

Balenciaga declined to elaborate on its presentation, scheduled for 9:15 a.m. on Feb. 28 at a venue still to be revealed. Past collections have been shown at the Crillon hotel or in its showrooms on Rue Cassette.

Wang was named creative director of Balenciaga in December. One of the rising stars in the NY fashion scene, he succeeded Nicolas Ghesquière, who left Balenciaga after a 15-year tenure.

Wang's privately held fashion house will remain separate from Balenciaga. He established his label in 2005 and has rapidly built a global following for his edgy T-shirts, studded handbags and sleek-and-modern designer clothes for women and men.
