While Paris was welcoming thousands of fashionistas, fashion bloggers and vloggers, designers and models, editors and critics from all around the globe for Fashion Week, I was following the whole event through my laptop screen at home. As new collections were being presented, I sipped on tea while lounging on my settee and scrolled through endless articles about the best-dressed of day 1 of PFW or the biggest hits straight from the catwalk. And to think that I was in that same, seemingly calm and mysterious city for a couple of days just a week ago, as an outing with my art class!
My favorites from this year's Paris Fashion Week were Iris Van Herpen with the usual amazing cuts and silhouettes, the eclectic choice of fabrics, Valentin Yudashkin with beautiful pastels and sheer flowing fabrics, Givenchy with the lace-ups, stripes and leather. Also, I must give credits to Chanel (or should I say Karl) for the colourful and feminist ladies-first&make-fashion-not-war collection.
