A great day for a prêt-à-porter

I attended Paris Fashion Week.

These are words that I never thought that I would be able to say anytime soon. After months of stalking schedules and imagining what it would be like to get into a show, my dreams finally came true. I’m not even joking, I teared up when I first sat down in my seat (yeah I somehow got a seat, too). How did I get in? We went to the venue about an hour before the show and waited outside. As the crowd began to pour in, we made sure to keep our spot at the front of the line. Once all of the ticketed attendees entered the building, it was time for us to take our spots at the Dévastée.

FullSizeRenderUpon entry we were given a booklet that contains the entire Paris Fashion Week schedule. This is available online, so it wasn’t anything too exciting, but then we realized that this book contained something a little more exclusive. Filled with cocktail hours, designer showcases and exclusive meet and greets, this booklet is basically the Holy Grail of fashion week. Granted, you need an invitation to get into some of these events, but there are just any many where you don’t.

We tried to get into three different shows today, and let me tell you it is absolutely exhausting. I’ll post my full collection review of Dévastée soon, but for now here are a few of my favorite shots from the show.

FullSizeRenderFullSizeRenderFullSizeRenderFullSizeRenderI’m not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but I had the perfect vantage point to get shots of both the front and back of all the looks. I took of video of the final walk, so check out my Instagram (@ehmeebaby) to make sure you don’t miss it! My eyes are closing as I write this, so that’s all for now. I’ll be attempting to attend even more défilés tomorrow, so make to keep a close eye on HFbC to stay updated on Paris Fashion Week.
