When you picture a Paris Fashion Week show, what comes to mind?  Probably a glamorously intimidating scene from The Devil Wears Prada; in which you feel like you’re dressed like a million dollars, but then arrive and realize how terribly un-chic you are compared to the editor next to you.  Having been my first true invitation-only Paris Fashion Week show, Amaya Arzuaga’s did nothing but live up to every cinematic fantasy I had!  Dressed to the nines, I felt like Anna Wintour cutting to the front of the crowd to hand the bouncer my invitation.

Le Moine Qui Tricote AW1213

Comfort and trendy style is combined in these sweaters which we will see in different variations all over the Fallwear magazines.

Le Moine Qui Tricote (the knitting monk) boasts high end knitwear that was shown during Paris fashion week in a gallery in the Marais. This creator’s designs remain hard to find as her production is limited since each piece is knitted by hand by a human. If you manage to get your hands on one come tell me about it!

Manish Arora ~ AW1213 #PFW

Manish Arora – Street art and street wear are taken to new brights!

Having always drooled over Arora’s flawless use of highly pigmented colors and knack for turning unwearable fabrics into the most intricate and eye catching designs, I had very high hopes for his Automne Hiver 2012/13 collection.  The designer, hailing from New Delhi (originally Bombay), single-handedly put India onto the fashion map in early 2000.  With past shows debuting at London, New York, and Milan fashion weeks, Paris was lucky to have Manish again this year!  The bright colors were literally flowing from the live spray paint show, the music was pumping, and the models rocked the designs with attitude.  Manish shows are always full of excitement and a live performance each one more exciting than the last!

Luis Buchinho AW1213 #PFW

Model Kelsey Close, after the show.

The Luis Buchinho show was lovely and full of klein blues and grays, black and white with plenty of play on texture, cut and color blocking with this simple yet complex palette. Buchinho was inspired by hos memories, the streets and the ocean views, the salty air of Portugal for this breezy collection full of movement and plays on shadow and light with graphic lines and slender cuts.

Claudine Ivari – Fall wear sublime AW1213

I was thrilled to be invited to Claudine Ivari’s Fall/Winter prête-à-porter collection. The invitation itself was telling of the playful creativity of this designer. It was made like a plane ticket with the destination as « Paris Fashion Week ». LOVE it!

Got my invite for Claudine Ivari #pfw #aw1213 ! So happy! &qu... on Twitpic

I went with my friend, model Kelsey Close, who admitted to me that it was her first time seeing a show from this perspective and not as a model walking in it! What a perfect show for her first one. Not overwhelming but opulent just the same. Claudine’s shows are held in the giant and luxurious space where she also has her show room and holds her private sales. It’s a classified building, and so quintessentialy Parisian! Continue reading Claudine Ivari – Fall wear sublime AW1213
