A Fashion week Memoir.
Last week was the final day of the Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 collections. I was lucky enough to be in the right city at the right time. It first started with a flux of invitations. I was so surprised that the PR companies I contacted actually wanted me to attend their show. This picture contains some free goodies, invitations, magazines, and a rainbow of business cards.
I spent a lot of time (which I should have used studying) on Google Maps figuring out how to get from show to show. I navigated my way around Paris with my friends, both old and new. I saw some of my favorite models in person, and although they were extremely busy, I even snapped a picture of them.
I snuck into shows. I dressed up in my favorite outfits. I was photographed by major online magazines such as NOWfashion, Vogue, WWD, Elle UK, and others. I met some very interesting people. I saw some of the most famous celebrities in the world of fashion such as Anna Wintour dodging out of Dior 5 minutes early and Anna Dello Russo with her personal umbrella holder.
Grace Coddington walked by me and told me that my crepe with whipped cream topping looked delicious. I was photographed by Bill Cunningham. I saw Pat McGrath race away cackling like a mad woman on a Vespa. I was graced by the presence of Ming Xi. I saw my FIRST EVER runway show at….Sonia Rykiel!
I can’t wait for the opportunity to do it all again in years to come :)
