The catwalk performances were divided into five themes: Free in Body and Mind, I Am Sexy (showcasing Latex, leather and lace), I Am Chic (a celebration of Frenchness and the 1920s, with colours from pink to burgundy), I Am Divine (the 1970s and Studio 54, with gold and black, and jewelled lingerie), and I am Joyful (the most French of them all, with sailor-striped tops and petticoats).
