Today I am sharing with you some photos from a couple of street style photographers I met in Paris. I ran in to them at number of shows and we teamed up and went a few shows together and had lunch together as well for which Olivier the French photographer treated us. The other photographer I met is named John and he is from Canada. It was fun shooting with them and makes shooting street style that much more enjoyable.

Well it is finally here, my Paris Fashion Week vlog. This was one of the busiest fashion weeks for me.

But I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I hope you enjoy my escapades…

I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Mannish Arora show in Paris and although the wait to get into show was long and a bit chaotic it was well worth it. Held in the infamous Hall of Mirrors located in the Passage Jouffroy it was quite the Parisian experience; and one could sense the by gone era of lavish nightlife. No throbbing runway music though, but rather, performer Luc Bruyere greeted invitees, crooning seductively wearing head to…

Telfar kicked off fashion week in Paris showing at the Le Cigale theater which is now a night club. The sun was shining, the air cool and dry–a perfect autumn day in this most beautiful of cities. I arrived early to shoot street style and there was already a crowd outside, and a buzz in the air and one could sense the energy that accompanies the start of the season. This was Telfar’s first time showing in Paris and it was quite the debut.

Paris Fashion week was quite busy for me this season, I had shows every day but one and when I was not covering shows I was shooting street style. Of course I wanted to look my very best and admit I was a bit hurried when planning out my outfits. I always think I have time and then one day usually the last week of August I realize Fashion Month is right around the corner and I have not thought about what I am going to wear.

I kicked off Paris Fashion Week with a pre-fashion week event and headed to a presentation in the third arrondissement of Paris otherwise known as the Haut-Marais. The Marais is known for it’s shopping and the Haut-Marais is known for the food and the Les Enfants Rouges market. I attended the event with my Parisian niece who of course was very excited to attend. It was held at a Gallery and was hosted and produced by Oui Bridge. It was a wonderful way to commence the season and the collection was a brilliant combination of artistry, fashion forward designs and intricate techniques.

Flying Solo SS2020

I had the distant pleasure of attending Flying Solo’s second show for NYFW. They premiered last season for Fall 2019 and SS2020 was the second time they presented for NYFW. The started more or less on time, which is surprising for a fashion show and I barely made it, and scooted in the door in the nick of time. I had to work, and I even left early, but it was all I could do to make it in time. I was been invited by Viivi and I think they walked right before I arrived and featured the fun quirky tees they are known for. I did get to see them during the finale.
