In a few days I’ll be taking off for Paris to attend the Fashion Week events.
Who would have thought that six months have passed since my last visit to the Fashion Capital, a visit that was so exciting and full of experiences.
This time, I’ll be reviewing the fall-winter 2017/18 collections of various fashion houses, but before I start expecting a variety of coats, scarves, ponchos and gloves, I wanted to go back to the Chloé summer collection fashion show, which set the tone to an unforgettable week, somewhere in September.
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 :- )
