I am still in denial that I am back home from Paris Fashion Week but luckily, I am able to relive my experiences through these blogs. So there will be more of these, I hope you don’t mind!
Last week when I was in Paris for Fashion Week, I had the amazing opportunity to partner with Fashion Forward Dubai to create and shoot my favorite looks from their gorgeous showroom. I have never been to Dubai but have always been intrigued, so I was really excited to learn more about their designers. There were so many beautiful designs to choose from, which made it hard to narrow things down to just three, but these were hands down my favorites. We shot these looks only hours before I hopped on the plane to head back home and I’m so glad that I did because this was one of my favorite moments from Paris Fashion Week!
Not only was I able to style these amazing pieces but I was able to meet the designers behind each piece of clothing I wore. They were all super talented, extremely friendly, had a touching story and I am so incredibly thankful to have had the opportunity to meet them. I hope you all enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them and I can’t wait for these pieces to come available in Spring/Summer of 2018!
