the end of Paris Fashion Day 1

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This very long first day finished on the ice with A F Vandervorst. The show was quite positive and energetic. It had to be to follow Bernhard’s.

The day ended as it began, thanks to the Flanders Fashion Institute me and my team were privy to a ride back from Bercy in the FFI van. The van dropped us off at the Boobs bar where Melody Wolf was having her after party in collaboration with her friend Olivier Bobin. Olivier just produced his new look book and cd. I ran into many friends and among them was the accessory designer of choice, Yoshiko of Yoshiko creations. If you look through the folder of my personal photo’s you will find me having my Lost in Translation Bill Murrey moment modeling for her. Around midnight it was time to come home and write to you.
