In less than 24 hours, the VT team will arrive at the most sought-after event in the fashion world—Paris Fashion Week.
We are so grateful to be a part of the select group of fashion industry professionals who get to experience the magic of PFW. This year is particularly exciting, as VT’s lead stylist, Kellye, will be attending her first ever Paris Fashion Week alongside Jesse and Lisa Marie! Kellye will be taking over the Visual Therapy Instagram during her time there to give our followers an insider’s perspective of what it’s like to attend the shows at Paris Fashion Week.
So why is it crucial that we attend the shows in Paris if we can just see the collections at showrooms and boutiques?
Well, a designer’s runway show is an artistic expression of the designer’s vision, while the showroom is the reality of the collection. The show tells the whole story, and it’s our job as wardrobe stylists to interpret it a real way for our clients. As we watch the collections hit the runway, we mentally flag all the must-have pieces for our clients’ wardrobes next season!
It doesn’t stop there though, we do more than just go to the fashion shows. Paris Fashion week is also an opportunity for us to attend designer luncheons, dinners, and private showroom appointments. All of these things enlighten and inspire us to be the best possible wardrobe stylists for our clients.
See a few throwback shots of Paris Fashion Week F/W ’16 below and Kellye’s top looks for PFW ’17. Stay tuned for full coverage of PFW ’17 on the blog in the coming week.
