Fashion week may seem like a glamorous and lush affair, the reality is it’s often a draining and painful experience. Heels are every woman’s best friend, but try walking on them all day – and repeat that for a week. By now I have learned that every fashion week comes with blisters on both feet and cuts on places I sometimes don’t know how I got them. It’s 2016 – we’re flying to the moon and back, we’ve detected gravitational waves, but the perfect shoes are apparently still a myth. Add to that a camera bag you are lugging around from one place to another and you’ve got yourself an exhausted body ready for hibernation.
I may not be an educated soul when it comes to fashion. But I know what I like and dislike and I am on a journey to learn more about the world. This post was as much about showing you guys my fashion week experience as well as it was about finding my own voice. Little by little, I hope to steer this blog into the direction I want to be headed and I hope I can keep challenging myself to think outside the box creatively when it comes to blogging. Because the last thing I want is to exhaust you guys with the same posts over and over again! (if I do, do let me know!)
I want to thank Pullman for making our Paris Fashion Week an unforgettable experience. We stayed at the Pullman Roissy on the first night and the Pullman Montparnasse on the following nights. Both hotels are within less than half an hour away from the city center, which is always perfect when you’re in Paris for fashion week. My advice: go to Roissy for a quiet Paris getaway (and enjoy the food at Culinaire Bazaar) and go to Montparnasse for the extraordinary views (see above).
As for now, I’m going back to hibernation. Well, for the night at least. There’s a ton of posts coming up! Stay tuned 😉
