This week the fashion circus is in town. This is one of my favourite times of the year. Not because I follow the fashion world closely at all, purely because the city gets just that bit more colourful and there are always lots of fun events organised. Like the launch of Garance Doré's stationary line with Rifle Paper Co. at Colette on Saturday. Katie, Marissa and I went just for a little look-see and I left with a new phone case, To-Do notepad and a signed card.
I had a bit of a nerdy fangirl moment. I've been a fan of Garance's work long, long before she was
Mrs Schuman moved to NYC and her illustrations are my all time favourite. I think her posts on advice are so inspiring, I use Procreate because of her, AND she spoke at ALT!!
Marissa has written about the new stationary line over here.
On Sunday, Katie and I met to take Daisy for a stroll through the Tuileries with some Angelina hot chocolate and ended up at the Grand Palais for a bit of a gawk at the commotion out the front of the Chloe show taking place in the back galleries. We bumped into the always lovely, but very exhausted Ylenia who was only half-way into her crazy week.

Not only did Katie lend me her fancy, very expensive camera so I could take these photos, she also played puppy sitter. She's my hero!
This girl was super cute and composed, and then she started laughing at Daisy and it was gorgeous.
Total skirt crush - that fabric is perfect!
I managed to get in amongst the camera pack as everyone left the venue to take some surprisingly nice pictures, but I'll post these pics next week. In the four years I've lived in this city I've never come down to partake in the fashiony festivities that happen twice a year, as much as I've always been meaning to. On one hand I wonder why I hadn't sooner, it was quite entertaining and fun, but on the other hand to share it with lovely friends was the best.
