I managed to drag my behind to the Place des Arts around 8 on Friday, right after pulling myself out of a Thazard induced food coma (man that ramen was out of this world). Maybe the tight skirt wasn't the best idea to conceal the lil food baby I ended up with after my adventure into the world of Asian/Western European fusion cuisine, but it had to do since I had been wearing it all day and couldn't peel it off me anymore.
We arrived just before the Forever 21 show and were able to squeeze in a few backstage snaps of models getting ready and the awesome stylists and makeup artists that made the magic happen.
Nice snaps right? I would have gotten more, but one of the stylists (not portraid here unfortunatelly) got a little bit of a temper tantrum and chased me out...(ah, #fashionbloggersproblems) which ended up being a good thing, because otherwise I would have totally missed the Forever 21 show.
|Love these guys - don't they look awesome?|
Maybe that's what he was saying to me (he spoke really fast French and I couldn't get most of it) - "omg Dora, you're going to miss the show while taking all these awesome photos backstage". Let's pretend that's what he said...and not something along the lines of..."get out stupid fashion blogger, you're in everyone's way".
|Qualite Motel brought on the entertainment factor|
|Great show by College Lasalle|
I loved the Forever 21 show. It was relevant and in tune with most of the street trends happening right now. However, the Collège Lasalle Generation Z show outshined anything that was on the stage up until that point. It was by far the absolute best moment of the night, and I can almost dare say, of the entire week.The designers were fearless and the guys from Qualite Motel really brought it. I honestly hope that all the other brands can take a que from these guys for future events - yes, I'm talking about you, Le Chateau!
Our evening ended with a sampling of Chinese dumplings from one of the numerous food trucks in the square, which after all the excitement and a couple of beers really hit the spot right. To be continued...
