Over the next few posts I will be sharing my Paris Fashion Week experiences. 
For me, a small town English girl, this was rather exciting for me.
I have a kind of secret double fashion life and I rarely get to share this with people, until now that is.
I enjoy seeing the industry from behind the scenes, it's interesting to see what really goes on in comparison to what people think goes on.


Yang Du, Paris Fashion Week February 2012.

Okay, so I did mention how backdated these were, but as I haven't been blogging for a year I feel I have lots to share. 
Last February, I had the amazing opportunity to go to Paris and work at a number of shows the On/Off team were putting on during Fashion Week. This is one of four posts sharing my experiences with the world!
So, I did go there to work, however for the Yang Du show I got treated and asked if I would like to watch the show instead. Of course I said yes and had an amazing experience of a designer I am not so familiar with.
I wouldn't say I would personally wear these creations out of the house as my style is slightly more simplified but the show was inspiring. It was more like a theatre production than a fashion show. 
The theme, as you can see from the photos, was a interpretation of Noah's Arc. The models came down two by two in brightly coloured animal faced knits whilst in-between featured performances from Ryan Styles.
I have to say, it was the strangest most intriguing thing I had ever seen. The kind of thing you know you shouldn't be watching but you just can't keep your eyes off no matter how hard you try.
And to be honest, anything with an animal face on has my vote...

Backstage at Lyle & Scott.

Had the wonderful opportunity to work at the Lyle & Scott show last year. The collection was full of bright sweaters and trousers combined with the unmistakable L&S edge. 
I especially liked that the main model looked identical to Penn Badgley....never a bad thing.
I mean, not that we look at the models, it's obviously all about the clothes ladies...right?
