Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011

30 Sep

Save the best for last! After kicking-off in New York and stopping off in London and Milan, Fashion Week has finally arrived in Paris! Where else should the grand finale take place but in the fashion capital of the world.

Featuring ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2011 collections, Fashion Week commenced on Tuesday, September 28, and will continue through Wednesday, October 6.

Choosing a venue is as important as the beautiful creations these designers showcase. Dior chose the Jardin des Tuileries and Chanel the Grand Palais. You better believe I will be at Dior and Chanel attempting to catch a birds-eye view or pretending to be a reporter who lost their press pass. More to follow if I am able to obtain any pictures.

I was lucky enough to score a ticket and a press pass to a show during fashion week. Last night I attended the Damir Doma show at the Galerie de Mineralogie, Museum National D’histoire Naturelle. My fabulous friend Joel was my press. What an incredible experience hob-knobbing with all of the editors, buyers and fashion gurus.

I sat next to an editor from Dazed and Confused, a British fashion magazine. I chuckled to myself thinking I write for Parisgirl my fashion blog.

Damir Doma’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection showcased a chic new wardrobe influenced by a lean silhouette, silks and sulfurous tones. The tops were shown slightly below the bust line. Interesting cutouts and an abstract symmetry were introduced throughout the collection.

The Summer palette drew from the earth. The tones were smoldering in igneous oranges and yellows that cooled to nude and graphite shades. Transparent and opaque mesh was used throughout accentuating a woman’s femininity.

According to Damir Doma, “Uniting a sinuous aesthetic of reverence and sensuality, the collection writes a new chapter in an unfolding story of atemporal balance.”

Stay tuned more to come as fashion week continues…
