Paris Fashion Week officially kicks off today and two of the industry's biggest names will get the sartorial ball rolling with their S/S '19 shows. First up, Maria Grazia Chiuri will present her latest collection for Dior at 430pm local time (GMT +4). The show is taking place at the Hippodrome Paris Longchamp, a 57-hectare horse-racing facility, perhaps signaling a continuation of the equestrian trend for yet another season. 

Very little is known about the show so far, but there's only a few hours to go before we see what Maria has dreamed up next. Be sure to tune in live below...

Gucci is the next major name on the calendar, presenting the third of its three France-based shows (Cruise and F/W '18 were both shown in the country, too) at 930pm local time (GMT +4) tonight. Stay tuned to Buro 24/7 Middle East to watch it live from Paris.
