An Utter Surprise: Paris Couture Week 2012

All these photos from Paris Couture Week were taken by chance. Upon arrival to Paris, though fully aware it was Paris Couture Week, never in a million years did I think that I would be able to (somewhat) experience the fun and fast-paced life of one of fashions craziest weeks. By luck, my friends and I got off at the underground stop in front of the Hotel de Crillon. While walking out of the underground we were immediately aware of the hustle and bustle around us. Pedestrians and photographers running from one end of the street to the other in order to catch a glimpse of one of their fashion icons or snap exclusive pictures of the likes of Anna Wintour or Grace Coddington. At first, we were completely unaware of the scene we had just stumbled upon, but as we walked closer to the Hotel, photographers zoomed passed us yelling: “Mira! Mira!” And there stood Miroslava Duma. We were shocked, yet overjoyed that we had miraculously come across such a site. After ten minutes of discussing our luck, a fleet of “fashion royalty” began emerging from the Crillon. Thank God one of my friends had a camera in tow! Here are some pictures we were able to offhandedly snap.

(Love this models support for Syria!)
