Style: we heard about it

Paris Fashion Week has come to a close but here I share some thought provoking photos

 How these designs make it from runway into an everyday wardrobe is anybody’s guess.

Still, it’s a fantasy world that’s fun to partake in and even more fun to eavesdrop on some of the casual conversation.

Overheard at Fashion Week

A true sign of the times, a girl mutters to her seatmate, “all this talk about buy now, wear now. I just want to be able to afford now.”

A backstage interaction:
Assistant: We have to get her into hair and make up!
Manager: No, that’s the look

A waif looking brunette sits next to a blogger:
Brunette: Oh my god, you are just so cute. Too cute. I’m obsessed with you.
Blogger: Have we met ?

In a question we all wonder, but seldom say out loud, a show-goer asks the person sitting next to them, “Have we met or do I just know you from Instagram??”

Such is the fabulous, fun and flaky world of fashion.
