How can I describe the ecstasy and awe I experienced, or the seventh heaven I was transported to when on an average day I checked my email after coming home from school, and read words so unbelievable my mind took minutes to process them. Had I really just been invited to a fashion show? Well, the answer was yes. After a few brief seconds of doubting whether I could attend, I made up my mind. I simply had to go. So I did, and I couldn’t regret it less.
THE VENUE: Galerie Joseph in the III arrondissement, a modern, minimalist gallery located in the Le Marais district of Paris. It was the perfect backdrop for the colorful, and creative designs that were showcased.
THE CLOTHES: Each garment was so unique, and completely different from the one that preceded it. Instead of talking about each piece, or the collection as a whole, I decided I would share my top 5 favorite looks with you!
This look was fairly simple, but beautiful nonetheless. The cut of the jumpsuit was extremely original, as the flared pant-leg created the illusion of longer legs, and the top was very slimming. I also loved the black trench vest that was paired with the jumpsuit, as it gave a more ‘street’ vibe while remaining sophisticated.
I loved the sheer effect of these lace white pants! Though I’m not sure if I would be brave enough to wear them, I certainly enjoyed looking at them down the runway, and I thought that the shoes were perfect to contrast with the very feminine look of the pants.
This curve-hugging white dress was styled impeccably! The statement necklace that was worn with it was to die for! The whole look was, in my opinion, perfect for a night out during summer, or as a statement piece for winter.
Is it a dress? Is it a co-ord? Is it just a skirt and a top? I’m not entirely sure, but I love it! Both of the pieces are super versatile and could easily be paired with almost anything! The entire look was ‘straight up my alley’ and I’m seriously considering hunting down those shoes because they’re perfect.
Saving the best for last, I have to share my absolute favorite piece from the ENTIRE show! This furry lilac/grey vest caught my attention as soon as it went down the runway. There was nothing like it in the entire show, and I think it was one of, if not the most beautiful piece in the collection.
THE DESIGNER: Floriane Fosso is a young, French-Cameroonian designer who has just launched her line, From Paris To. Each piece from the collection takes inspiration from a place Floriane has visited. Not only was the show amazing, but the last moment, when she shared a tender embrace with her father as he handed her a bouquet of flowers, was simply beautiful, Seeing her next to her work, surrounded by friends and family members was a reflection of her values and admirable perseverance.
