Yesterday marked my very first Paris Fashion Week show, and first up on my list was the Fall-Winter 2011 Womens Dior runway presentation, which instantly became the most talked about show for PFW with the removal of John Galliano.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that he is no longer with Dior. So while on one hand I was supposed to be all excited that I finally made it to my first PFW show, it was also tinged with sadness, knowing I witnessed the last collection by Mr Galliano.
Despite reports saying press and buyers would boycott the event initially, there wasn’t an empty seat in the house. Security was also tight; we had to jostle at the gates for quite a while before being let in.
My snapshots weren’t that great either since I obviously wasn’t prepared for the army of photographers and their giant flash bulbs that basically washed out all my shots. Still, I would like to think that I enjoyed myself, given the experience of it all.
And as far as the F/W11 bags were concerned, I did spot a new design which I’ll be covering soon in another post. Au revoir, for now.
