PARIS FASHION WEEK : MONTAGE II

Photobucket
I was in Anna Wintour's eyeline for the Carven show. For such a small person, she really creates such a magnetic presence. Even the celebrity-spotting photographers were too timid to approach her.

David Nyanzi snapped me outside the Anne Valerie Hash show on Day 4. It was so great to see him here, as he was the first person I ever met when I first went to London Fashion Week in September 2009, when we got chatting outside the Henry Holland show, as we were both totally new to the whole thing and it overwhelmed us. Back then, you could probably count the number of bloggers who went to fashion week off two hands. It's a different world now. Two years later here in Paris, I wore Zara orange fur, purple vintage paisley shirt, Suede skirt from Topshop and Chanel bag.

I just didn't have any time to snap ay streetstyle this time round, but just as I was leaving the Tuileries I had to stop for this guy. ORANGE CORDUROY. I feel the bottle-green S.Pelligrino just adds to the look.

Dunja from Style Dissection snapped me on Day 6 outside the Akris show, dressed as a wannabe colonial. That morning I had been thinking about John Jannuzi's blog Textbook, and I half-unconsciously  dressed with "What would Mrs. Moore* wear...?" in my mind. The kimono and safari hat are non-Indian themed pieces I accept creative license for.


*Mrs Moore is a character in E.M. Forster's novel A Passage to India. Unlike the other British Colonials, she has an instinctive understanding of the mysticism of the native culture which transcends racial barriers.

Behind the scenes at the Jitrois showroom overlooking the Tuileries, where I spent 8 days working solidly, popping to shows when I had a chance. It was fascinating and exciting to watch a fashion house prepare for the new season.

Polaroid taken by Cèdric for the Unknown Project at Cent Trent rue Rivoli, or was it the Citizen K party? It was the last day of PFW and my head was a mess. I'm wearing S/S 2012 Jitrois suede dress, kindly lent to me by the designer.

What a fabulous, fabulous montage, Imogen! I will return to this again, just to bask in the beauty of the photos.

I didn't realise that Sept 2009 was your first fashion week! That's when I first met DAvid, too - and it was my first. So we're all from the same school year, I guess.

You reminded me that I haven't done my post yet on my shots of Anna Wintour. It's true: no one dare approach her. I remember her checking me out in a restaurant in Belleport, Long Island - a less bling town near the Hamptons - when I was about your age. I forgot what I wore, but I could see her appraising me - and, according to my then boyfriend (coincidentally, now my husband) she seemed to approve. It was like being bathed in golden sunlight. Anna so rocks.

Hope you're having fun. Did you ever catch up with Alex (la Perle de Paris) btw?

Have a lovely weekend Imogen! xoxo
