Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week

Fashion

How do you even begin to summarize something so totally overwhelming and breathtaking? I could go on using superlatives all day long, but as that would tire both you and me out I’ll just blurt out what comes to mind. This week was fun, intense, tiresome, but one of the best weeks in my life.

Some might argue that the shows are the essentials of PFW or any other Fashion Week for that matter, but I say it’s all about the people you meet and all about the connections you make. I’ve met the most amazing people ever, but as I’m not much into namedropping as that would make someone better than the other I’ll just refrain to say, I’ve met the best there are. Boring? Maybe, but as I’ve neither ever been star struck nor will I start now. I’ve met designers, photographers, people in the industry and people totally disconnected from fashion. They’ve all been a gift in lifelong friendships forming and contacts for a lifetime. Basically this post could be and endless story about what’s hot and what’s not, but I’ll leave that for upcoming Fashion Weeks. Right now I’m only left with soaking up what actually took place this past week and trying to realize what I was part of. There’s one word for it all. I’m really, really, REALLY thankful! And oh, more outfit photos will be coming up later on. 🙂

    I am happy that you had this opportunity Thomas and gain a lot of experience in the PFW. You have the right attitude. To be thankful is one of the most important things in life. I heard before that when you are thankful you will attract back more beautiful things in life. As always you look marvelous!

    I must said that this picture you post is so so amazing, i love it! very artsy :))

    sending big hug & much love to you, Gina

    I love this photo Thomas and I would love to go to PFW one day! I agree that (for me too) it’s all about the people you meet and I think it sounds like an amazing experience – lots of fun but I think also incredibly exhausting!
    Looking forward to seeing the rest of your outfits!

    I’m so jealous that you had the opportunity to attend PFW! I would be happy to just go to any of the fashion weeks across the world. It seems like there’s such a unique vibe with all the different styles and cultures meshing together. Sounds like such an amazing experience. I can’t wait to see some of your outfits. I spy a “Karl is my father” top here and I love it!

      Any fashion week is really cool, I’ve been to plenty before, but Paris was really something though! 🙂 And you’re spotting an ElevenParis sweater quite correctly 😉

Things will only continue to get better and better for you 😉 Thanks so much for sharing and I can’t wait to see the pics you share!

    Dear Thomas, I’m just so happy for you! I can feel by your words that you had the time of your life! I’m sure things will get better and better for you and I could’t be more proud.
    That crew photo has everything : style, glam and that french ” je ne sais quoi”. Très belle!
