It’s been a crazy couple of weeks but honestly if you know me by now you know I love the hustle and bustle. A week ago, I attended my first Haute Couture show in Paris. It’s always been a dream of mine to attend either NYC or Paris fashion week. The opportunity to have been invited because of BTBeauty made this experience that much more meaningful for me.
Haute Couture week in Paris brings together many of the worlds iconic luxury labels to showcase their Spring/Summer 2019 couture collection. Celia Kritharioti was the first show I attended – She’s a Greek fashion designer. Her pieces were sophisticated, elegant, and beautifully feminine. Every piece that came out had a softness yet uniqueness to it that showed both traditional and modern bridal couture. Russian model Lena Perminova (in the video) closed the show in a balloon-lifted vail that got the entire audience to pull out their phones to capture this unforgettable moment.
YOLANCRIS (Opera Prima SS 2019) – Sisters, Yolanda and Cristina are the designers behind this Barcelona based brand. Each piece from the collection was inspired by the designer’s home city and its famous trencadis, colourful design. It was a perfect balance between chic modern, contemporary, and classic. One of my favourite pieces was this beautiful intricate, golden dress shown in the video.
