Paris part one..

Monday, September 07, 2009

Hi everyone! Im back! I had such a great time in Paris and the show was unlike anything I have ever been too! I ended up taking 138 photos in total in 4 days! Mostly of the fashion shows, so Ive decided to divide Paris into two posts so I can show loads of pics!

The Eiffel Tower! So amazing to see for the first time and even better lit at night!

This photo is a little blurry as I was on the boat ride up the river.

They had everything at the show! Even a beauty spot where make up artists were at hand if you needed freshening up!

The first show I was able to catch was 3 runways, one yellow, one blue, one red.
and showed the top 100 must have items for Spring 2010.

The fashion show in the 'Creative By' Universe was amazing! I managed to get a spot standing at the end of the runway beside the press photographers! The models moved so quickly I had to snap like mad to catch a picture.
Linen dresses in every colour are the must have item for Spring 2010, this dress was shown in a rainbow of colours moss green, turquoise, coral, mustard, white, and inky navy. With a handkerchief hem I loved this dress on the runway! (granted the models could make a plastic bag look amazing!) I managed to also meet up with lovely Alecca Rox from Greece who was also at the show for work! I will post a pic of us together and tell you all about it in my next post!

Thank you for all your lovely comments while I was away I hope to reply to everyone over the next few days. Im also so pleased some of you liked my sketch i edited over the Paris photos, I might do some more sketches soon and do another post like this!
