Paris Fashion Week revealed their top looks from some of the most acclaimed designers of our era. Photos from runway shows, street fashion, and celebrity sightings poured out of the City of Lights this past week. Surprisingly, however, many of the most buzzed designers remained silent–despite the attempt most everyone made to have a visual conversation around these shows.

Below, we have the three designers with the most “visual buzz” from Fashion Week attendees and onlookers; but all three remained fairly unengaged. While New York Fashion Week fully embraced technology and social engagement, Paris shunned it in almost every way. These brands missed the opportunity to be a part of this future merging of tech and fashion, and they missed out on an opportunity to have a deeper and more engaging interaction with their fans.
