During Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris, from June 30 to July 4, the biggest fashion houses showcased their collections.
So I decided to test my abilities there and I started my preparation in time.
An invitation to a show was a dream of life for me.
However, I knew that it was very difficult to obtain such an invitation. I started by sending a letter to the fashion houses, where I was asking kindly for an invitation.
At the same time, I was trying to find someone to give me a piece of advice. As you can imagine, I hadn’t any results.
So I decided to take an idea about the great shows as an outsider and alongside to take shots of the shop windows in Paris.
So it happened, though I didn’t know where the shows would take place till the eve of the defile.
A day before the show, Chanel released the place (it is not released by most fashion houses for security reasons).
I got further information from the photographers.
After Chanel, I watched Julien Fournie’s and Armani’s Privee shows.
These two days were tiring but exciting.
I saw Paris from a different view than fashion and I liked it very much.
My next mission was to take photos at the rue Saint-Honoré and the big commercial roads, where the Italian factories had a big share.
I had many things to do these two days and the time passed quickly.
My big dream is to watch a big house’s defile and show you snapshots.
Till then, I ‘m content with what I can do.
