call it curiosity, peeping, or even snooping, but between us, there is nothing more interesting than an exclusive glimpse into the fashion industry and a ticket to one of the most secretive and reserved areas – behind the scenes.
In the midst of Paris Fashion Week the guys from MAC Cosmetics gave me an impressive and remarkable experience, when they exposed me to their work and creative process at the Issey Miyake and Vivienne Westwood shows.
Paris Fashion Week ended, leaving behind a collection of experiences and memories that continue to echo in my head. One of the most pleasant and exciting surprises of my journey, was the Céline fashion show.
I made the decision to jump in with the big kids and go to Paris fashion week. A decision a little far-fetched, if you think about it, for someone who until a few months ago was a legal advisor at an investment house, and undoubtedly one of those challenges that only I can set myself and believe that they were actually possible to achieve.
It happened! Not a dream, not fiction or fantasy, but a true reality in a parallel universe – I went to Paris Fashion Week!
If someone would have told me a year ago that I would spend the holiday break checking out shows by fashion houses Chloé, Céline, Issey Miyake and Vivienne Westwood, chat with designers, photographers, magazine editors, and other pillars in the fashion industry, surely I would have laughed dismissively and gone straight back to my pile of chores and pressing tasks. But all of this and more has happened :- )
A New Year is at our doorstep and if we look back, there is no doubt that this past year was significant, exciting and very formative. I made some brave decisions, of which I have written in the past, I've accomplished quite a few dreams, but most of all I've lived some amazing experiences. I put my life on a new path, and now it's time to have the cruise control system continue at the same speed and adopt resolutions and goals for the new year.
