Summary
A series of interconnecting stories that expose what goes on at the Paris fashion shows. When a fashion industry hot-shot is found dead, the police comb the fashion industry for clues. While the dead man's mistress mourns him as she is putting together a showing of her couture house's line, the man's widow could care less and attends the season's shows without a care, not knowing that her ex-husband is following her. Three magazine editors are trying to sign on a nonchalant photographer. A man and a woman are forced to share a hotel room when no other accommodations are available. Various love affairs are brewing amongst designers, models and others. All this is being broadcast live on a television show hosted by an American named Kitty Porter
