Last day of Paris Fashion Institute

PFI last day of June classes
Dear Shaded Viewers,

Twice a year I give a class in contemporary fashion to the students at PFI. Today was their last day of the 4 week program. From what I heard,they all loved it.

Jessica and kristen

Tonight on my way home from Raf Simons I saw Jessica TENCZAR and Kristen FRIBERGER, they had been determined to get into the Mugler show,that did not work out but it seems like they did get into the Raf Simons show.  Sonny Vandevelde and I took the metro home and saw the two of them on the quai.It was funny, Kristen had done her report on Jefferson Hack and she went up to him at the Raf Simons show. He thought she was looking for a job,she was not,just was thrilled to meet the man she had researched for her school project.

PFI offers a 4 week course twice a year: June and September. During that time they get to meet the people in the industry like Godfrey Deeny, who always seems to leave the students with a good impression, Marco de Rivera,Robb Young and yours truly.Tomorrow night the students will be helping with the seating at the Henrik Vibskov show.
