Vogue, a world renowned powerhouse in all things publishing, hosted their third annual Vogue World in the capital of fashion. Timed right before the Paris 2024 Olympics, models, athletes, and celebrities alike joined together in the Place Vendôme, where many Parisian fashion houses are ever familiar with. This year's spectacle celebrates the intertwined affair that sports and fashion have shared throughout the years. Vogue specifically highlighted whole decades, beginning with the 1920s, and the ways the two art forms have continued to inspire each other. Venus Williams Vogue World: Paris Tennis Style couture by Marine Serre Serena Williams wear Off-White Venus Williams champion tennis player equal pay advocate black red and white dress made by marine serre vogue paris

The slew of established houses represented in Paris were joined by a handful of emerging designers, fresh and ready to be seen. The celebration of sport and fashion recognized Venus Williams and the 2000s through a custom look by Marine Serre. The French native prides herself on a cyclical view to fashion with around 50% of her collections being made from upcycled materials. Serre noted to Vogue that the pay equality advocate embodies power and strength that shined through the look made from repurposed tennis bags, a tribute to Venus’s style on the court.

Noir Kei Ninomiya was a press favorite with a coveted cut-out look designed for Katy Perry’s guest appearance. The two 80s babies worked together flawlessly to represent the decade of all things bold. The Japan-born designer, Kei Ninomiya, studied French literature before heading to Antwerp to attend The Royal Academy of Fine Arts until he ended his studies early to work as a pattern designer for Comme des Garçons. Each piece designed by Kei Ninomiya braids together techniques learned throughout his life.
