Just this past Wednesday, Paris Fashion Week completed almost a month long of international Fashion Weeks, which were previously hosted by NYC, London and Milan. Ever exhilarating, the Paris shows are known for their ready to wear (RTW) collections and luxurious haute couture. And from the elaborate displays from the industry’s most renowned design houses, Fall 2012 is sure to be one fashionably grandiose season.
“Everybody wants my job,” stated Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, “…and that makes it very interesting, ah?”
This sentiment, reported by Jeanne Beker of TheStar.com, can perhaps put the theatrical Parisian catwalks in perspective. The crystalline landscape that served as Chanel’s runway, Marc Jacob’s self designed train and accompanying porters for the Louis Vuitton show and Miu Miu’s jeweled eyeshadow all start to make sense as they lend themselves to what Fashion Week does best—fantasy. The designers Paula Hermanny picked, below, leave us in such a heady dose of fantasy that we find ourselves aching for autumn.
For our final contest, you can enter the ViX Swimwear Paris Giveaway by telling us about your favorite thing from any of the Fashion Weeks (NYC, Milan, London or Paris). Do you find mixing patterns and playing with proportions inspiring? Does catwalk hair and make-up enthrall you? Or perhaps spying celebrities such as Jessica Alba in the front row or Mila Kunis wearing Isabel Marant gives you that little fashion escape during the workday. Make sure to comment below for one last chance to win ViX flip-flops for the ViX Swimwear Paris Giveaway! The winner will be announced next week!
