Last week I got the opportunity to work backstage at Paris Fashion Week. I am here for a month studying at the Paris American Academy in their Fashion Merchandising & Communication Program & it’s been amazing so far!
Our first four days here in Paris, we had the opportunity to work backstage during Haute Couture PFW dressing models for countless designers. Haute Couture is exceptionally amazing because the gowns & garments are so well crafted & detailed (& we got to see these pieces up-close and personal)
Farhad Re Couture FW 19
This was Farhad Re’s first Couture show in Paris Fashion Week & his pieces were so well designed & constructed
Love the feather detailing on the straps of this gown
^^^ my favorite piece from his collection
Georges Hobeika Haute Couture FW 19/20
This was hands down my favorite show. The gowns were amazing, the beading was insane, and the designs were so incredible. Georges Hobeika has really taken off in the last year after designing actress and celeb, Priyanka Chopra’s wedding gown.
Alexandre Vauthier FW 19
This show was held in the Grand Palais in Paris & I loved how he mixed femininity with workwear
and of coursssse Celine Dion attended wearing couture Vauthier
Yolancris FW 19
Yolancris is a designer out of Barcelona who has been much hype in Spain & her pieces definitely justified her credibility!
With a mix of Spanish culture & history spread throughout her designs, the detailing of this collection was so beautiful

Andddd that was a wrap for the shows we worked during PFW. It was such an unforgettable experience getting to see Couture designers and their pieces put into action and seeing a story come to life through fashion. The Paris American Academy gave us an opportunity a handful of students would die for so I will be cherishing these moments for a long longgg time to come.
