Fashion Show Crashers Cause Riot At Paris Fashion Week

PARIS — Fashion-show crashers caused an intense riot at Off-White’s Paris show.

Paris Fashion Week show-goers arrived to 46 rue Cambon, where fashion week shows are routinely held, to an aggressive scene.

The area outside the show was swarmed with gate-crashers and police attempting to shove their way through.

The crowd was so packed that an unlucky car got stuck in the tumult. One attendee fell to the ground. Police and publicists cried out to the crowd to provide space for her, but crashers ignored them and kept pushing toward the entryway.

At one moment, sources tell The Post, the riots outside became so intense that marquee fashion editors from Meredith walked away, declaring they felt the venue to be unsafe.

Once inside, the scene was equally chaotic: publicists yelling at attendees to step off the runway, insisting room be made for models to walk the runway.

The show itself was a parade of designer Virgil Abloh’s haute take on streetwear: sheer tutu-like frocks paired with sneakers, metallic belt bags; some tapestry-inspired pieces were there, too.

But in the end, for even the biggest fans of Abloh — including this writer — the takeaway from this season won’t be the clothes.
