First a little story; just before leaving Helsinki to Paris my camera fell on the floor and BROKE! Sitting on the front row at Ann Demeulemeester show I felt really strange, my camera is my work, my eyes! It could not be fixed and I could not buy a new one right there so all I had was my iPhone and honestly…not the same! So I was practically camera free during my whole Paris stay except for my iPhone pics that I share here. A Paris moments marathon…my longest story sofar. Lets see how far you follow me…
At the Ann Demeulemeester show…well let`s say the pictures are arty and that has a value
The famous bloggers outside the show.
Walking from St Germain to le Marais…very much in the silence and pilgrim state still…very much. Meeting Jennifer who had just bought THE Louis Vuitton bag that I for once like (with some exceptions) created by Yayoi Kusama. ( I was told her name…the Japanese dot artist it is, very well known)
The Issey Miyake show…
and backstage. The young designer (name?) passion is to create to make people feel happy. What a beautiful gift that is!
She creates fashion shows all over the world with different well known labels
and I have a beautiful rest in les Tuileries after the Tsumori Chisato show where I did not manage to get one single picture in frame…feel so bad about that, like letting my friends down almost.
Construction of the HUGE tent for the Louis Vuitton show. I SOOO wish someone will do it differently some day soon, like use all that crazy amount of money in a totally different creative way.
Me and Corinne from Corinne and Friends having a sunny meeting…then sitting in Kenzos car going for dinner at TOYOs restaurant, always so delicious! Must start a food blog!
At the Swedish Institute CCS Centre Culturel Suedois, where they served a Strindberg play and a real Swedish meal with ärtsoppa, Jansons frestelse, kräftor, sill…and all avec. It was a magical delicious fantastically generous moment! Det var en magisk ljuvlig fantastiskt generös upplevelse stund!
In the parks arty colorful recycling…I LOVE the parks in Paris…and this mix of fashion shows, walking and resting. The best! Very few shows this time. Focus on rest and other kinds of work…completing projects that was started a year ago.
Bill Cunningham does not miss one single show, not since I met him in 1972, I believe. He still has time for a hug and a smile. Thank you Bill!
