- Fashion Week
Last week there was the presentation of Haute Couture SS17 here in Paris.
I’ve been shooting street style for 4 years now, and during some of that time, I spent a little over 3 seasons covering runway and backstage during Paris Fashion Week.
At some point it was just physically impossible for me to continue doing 3-4 shows & 3+ hours of street style a day, that I had quit one of them and so I stopped with the shows.
Putting it all into perspective, I realized that Street Style challenges me and fulfills me more than runways, but I would lie if I told you I didn’t miss it.
After all, nothing beats the feeling of getting to see up close the stunning pieces of art (the clothes) and discover the story told by them each season.
One thing I still haven’t gotten the opportunity to do is to photograph a Haute Couture show (So far just RTW).
But that is my next goal!
Anyways, this article is a little hommage to what I loved this season. The outstanding work created by some of the most talented designers in the world.
I hope you’ll like it, and tell me what did you think of these collections ?
