“The Class Of _”,
Paris Fashion Week Yearbook by Beinghunted. x TECHUNTER [Recap]
Each season, fashion enthusiasts from across the globe gather in Paris. Whether they are long-time attendees or first-time visitors, they all share a passion for design and are part of the bigger picture that is Fashion Week.

As active participants in this industry – through its global consultancy engagements, productions or activations, editorial work, and so on – Beinghunted. and TECHUNTER have both established a network of like-minded individuals who are positioned at the core of cultural moments and events. While many individuals involved are known faces, some remain relatively unknown to the wider public. “The Class Of _” (TCO) was brought to life as a democratic compendium – like a school yearbook that everyone gets in on – to compile the profiles of as many people as possible who contribute to these extraordinary happenings.
TCO is an ongoing project that extends beyond fashion week. Sports events, film festivals, and art fairs are among the other moments that we have on our bucket list for the series.

For its inaugural launch in Paris, we partnered up to capture men's Paris Fashion Week in June 2023. This first edition, meant as a test run, has already produced a noteworthy output: 186 portraits capture the intimate yet broad network of industry leaders in both front-of-house and back-of-house functions, as well as up-and-coming creatives. The list ranges from emerging talents like Jeong Li, Newfacet, or Charlie Constantinou to well-known figures such as Hanna Lindblad, Kiko Kostadinov, Errolson Hugh or Tommy Cash.

The portraits were taken by Beinghunted., TECHUNTER Magazine, and fellow contributors Adam Katz Sinding and Leo Wild, each offering their distinct aesthetic to the photo series posted on TCO's dedicated Instagram channel @theclassof_.

All entries are accompanied by the subjects' names, titles, and sometimes a short quote or motto that captures their feelings in the midst of a frantic fashion week. Check out some of our friends below.
