Paris Fall Fashion Week: A Recap in Images

I returned to Paris just in time for the fashion madness last weekend, and here are some photos I took to document my passage… – Carin

Twice a year (or three if you count the haute couture shows) the stiletto clad fashion crowd invades the streets of Paris. During these weeks, Paris becomes even more glamorous and frenetic than usual. The streets are suddenly filled with photographers, super slim models, high-heeled fashionistas and plentiful dubious sartorial choices.

In-demand hotels and restaurants are fully booked, and first-time visitors may be left to wonder where all the regular people are hiding. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly run into Rachel Zoe on the street (which I managed to do twice) or bump shoulders with the lovely Garance Doré (which I also did a few times).

During my first fashion week in Paris I couldn’t believe my own eyes, and I still get a bit shocked when I take my first step in the Jardin des Tuileries. I never thought there was such madness behind this supposedly elegant event. The usually peaceful Tuileries gardens are literally filled with people screaming names I barely recognize, shouting “look here, look here” in English, French and Italian.

You better get out of the way for the photographers when the likes of Anna dello Russo, Giovanna Battaglia or Miroslava Duma approaches. The photographers will do almost anything to get a good shot, so watch your back if you don’t want to end up fashion road kill.
