PARIS FASHION WEEK 2017

Parisienne friends


Fashion Week

Never have I been so unprepared for a Fashion Week as this last one in Paris. I booked my train ticket and hotel the day before that I had to leave. Even the shows I applied only the day before. My focus was on Milan this season (check it out here) and I actually thought Paris was not going to happen anymore. I knew Linsey was going for sure, so I decided last minutely, what the hack YOLO, let’s join! I only went for 3 days because I had to come back for wedding, nevertheless, no regrets. I had an amazing time, networking and meeting up with (new) friends. 

I didn’t vlog this time, but I did take lots of pictures. Here is a little diary of the 3 days in Paris. Lots of new hotspots! Enjoy!!

DAY 1

Thalys

With my fear for flying, I was happy to go by train this time. With wifi on board, I could spend the hours productively doing emails.

— Pigalle —

Our hotel was around the corner of The Moulin Rouge in neighbourhood Pigalle. This area has become one of my fave. It’s relatively cheap and there is just so much to see, to do and to eat!

Beautiful bags at the high end Moyat show room. When they show the bags with hand gloves, you know it’s precious. I don’t even dare to look up how much these cuties were, but I don’t mind bartering one :D

 — Street style —

Cray cray paparazzi before the Balmain show. They tried to get a picture of Claudia Schiffer. And I was happy to see Chriselle Lim rocking her Balmain look (love her content). The girl on the right was drawing all the street style outside. Super cool!
