Lost & Found in Paris

(The Illusion)

I must admit, I feel it, Fear.

Fear of the unknown. 

Roaming the streets of Paris at 4 am by myself. 

It’s cold.

With no capital I have no where to stay 

No one to call

No where to go

I ask myself, where does this fear reside but within myself?

Therefore I am the creator 

So this means I can also be the destroyer of this idea called fear

 

(The destruction)

How can I truly be fearful here? It’s beautiful!

The monuments, statues and land marks are here with me.

I found myself in a situation where I can do nothing but be patient.

I can’t wait by sitting, so I draw and write.

There’s God within Art.

I can’t describe it any other way.

 

(The Reflection)

I understand no matter what the circumstance, I walk, stand, and sit with the Truth.

I needed to face myself in the dark, face the world in the dark.

To truly see who is who & what is what. 

I looked at a building that I assumed to be just a picture covering  undone construction.

I looked up to the moon and prayed asking to help me distinguish the truth from the false. 

I look again to the building, it became lit with lights.

The building was no allusion.

Jehovah is here with me.

Stood up at Pascal Millet!

Location: Paris Fashion Week AW16

Hey if you're like me then you were pretty excited to have a ticket to see the Pascal Millet show. Unfortunately receiving that ticket was a disappointment awaiting. Absolutely no one got into the show who had a standing ticket. Why have a standing invitation anyway if you aren't going to let anyone in. Maybe its the snobbery of fashion today. I wish I had that if I ain't front row I don't go mentality, but I still have faith in this industry. I still have faith that when I receive an invitation to go somewhere, that invitation hold up its end of the bargain. Not complaining though, I had more fun outside. Thanks to snapchat's cool Street Style tags I enjoyed myself. I went street style crazy! Check out the outside view of the Pascal Millet show ;)

London Showrooms Paris SS16

While in Paris during Fashion Week it was a must I visit the London Showrooms. The London Showrooms do an amazing job promoting the up and coming. The key word that always comes to mind is “innovation”. I knew I was in store for a treat. Though it’s very clear to see who the top designers are today, the London Showrooms give you a glimpse of who could possibly be the next hard hitting designer. Here are my top 3.

1. Faustian Steinmetz

Designer brands  Faustian Steinmetz who use the hands on approach by hand dying and weaving their own fabrics are clearly on the road to the top. Here’s my favourite piece from their SS16 line. instagram: @faustinesteinmetz

2. Nico Panda

Another brand that caught my eye was NicoPanda. This was a collection with a romantic edge using mostly a pastel colour palette. It was where streetwear met the full time ballerina. Many of the pieces had ballerina-like ribbon hanging from the back of the jackets, back packs and shirts. This collection was so beautiful! instagram: @nicopanda designer's personal instagram: @nicolaformichetti

3. Maharishi

My final fav was definitely the Maharishi collection. This was initially a menswear brand that added a womens line to compliment their more feminine aspect. The brand is military inspired and takes actual military fabrics from all over the world and recycles them into the collection. They call it “up-cycling” which is the perfect term. Gotta love innovation! instagram: @maharishi website: www.maharishistore.com

 

Those were my top 3 but of course there are many more extremely talented emerging designers. For more info on London Showroom designers head to Londonshowrooms.co.uk
