Bonjour from Day One here at Paris Fashion Week!
Today our grad teams arrived from all over the world – London, New York, Milan and even one from Singapore! The reason? The pinnacle of the Fashion Week season – Paris! Many of our students enter our doors with dreams of being backstage at Fashion Week and more often than not, those dreams involve Paris! The global hub of style, we love being here with our grad teams!
Today we were joining the K Fashion Project, a Korean style collective of a number of designers, showcasing their work in the breathtaking Palais Brongniart, a 19th century palace, now used as an event space, and when it comes to fashion week, a backdrop for many a designer. With its enormous scale, the Palais Brongniart was the perfect way for our graduate team to kick off todays proceedings at Fashion Week.
The look for the show had been carefully planned with the designers and the key artist – teamed with the classic gorgeous skin, each of the models had a predetermined pop of colour in their liner. The grads took all of the info from the demonstration and set to work.
Once the backstage madness has subsided, the models were moved downstairs for the show to go live outside in the Parisian sunshine, giving the grads the chance to pack up whilst the show took place before heading out into the city.
