Second edition of the shows I attended during Paris Fashion Week. From private showings, to pom-pom hats, to strutting with Bryan Boy.....
With all the glitz and glam that goes on around Fashion Week, from stars setting trends to fabulous parties, the clothes presented at shows may not be what you are seeing on your Instagram feed. However, even though no one is wearing the clothes off the runway just yet what is presented at Fashion Week sets the tone of what will be worn this coming fall and winter. Buyers and press flock to the shows to view the newest and brightest innovations in fashion in order to sell and report to you the ‘trends’ for a season. I was lucky enough to be one of the special people to see these shows and be able to share my opinion on what is coming next season.
Paris Fashion Week was probably one of the greatest experiences of my life, from the shows to the people I was lucky enough to meet, it was truly a week of growth and beauty. The week’s adventures will be taking over the blog for the next few posts in a feature I will be calling, “Paris Dairies”. Here I will be talking shows, street-style, fashion week activities, and even a little bit of food because I had some life changing donuts and baguettes.
For my first Paris Fashion Week I didn’t quite make it on the invite list for the Louis Vuitton show. I have grown particular admiration for Louis Vuitton over the past few years, as the company has put I focus on the connection between visual art and the art of fashion design. Since I was in the birthplace of Louis Vuitton and I could not go to the show I decided to explore the brand at the Foundation Louis Vuitton, going only hours after the show was presented in order to get a sneak peak at the space.
