PARIS FASHION WEEK – The #modellife issue

Last week Jasmijn and I went to Paris Fashion Week. Third time in a row for me, first time for Jasmijn! Together with Lisa we went from casting to fitting to show!

We got home with lots of stories so once in a while we will keep you posted about our Paris Adventure! Starting with: the model life!

SUPPORT

Being a model isn’t glamour and glitter every day. It’s working: day ànd night. For every 5 minutes of fame after a show models need to work insane long hours, do a lot of waiting and keep themselves in shape all the time.

That’s why I decided to join Lisa in Paris during the end of Fashion Weeks. I try to do something special every time. Last year I arrived in Paris with postcards, pictures and letters from friends and family to wish her good luck. The next season I made a goodie bag for Lisa and now she left for NYC with 30 envelopes. Each one had a cute message for her to cheer her up.

+ possibly some other castings and fittings.

 

STYLE

Even in a busy fashion city as Paris, you could easily tell if the girl you crossed in the streets was a model or not. Lots of girls seem to have the same way of clothing: black skinny, statement sweater, sneakers/biker boots and a black backpack/designer bag hanging casually off their shoulders. We asked Lisa if this was a thing, if all models do have the same style.

‘I think this is a practical coincidence: we need to get in and out of our clothes real quickly so a jeans and sweater are a must. We can’t go to castings and fittings over dressed as well. That’s why we have a classy and sober style I think.’
