Yesterday, 22 January 2018, Celia Kritharioti presented her latest Haute Couture collection during Paris Couture week. The show was held in the historic Ritz hotel. Celia is a Greek designer, but presents her collection often in Paris. I took backstage photos; where models get their make – up and hair done, and where they change the dresses.
It was a rainy day in Paris during Couture week. I just arrived at the Ritz hotel to photograph a fashion show. I haven’t seen Ritz since they opened again their doors. The hotel where Gabrielle Chanel once used to live. At the moment I was checking out the light with my camera, Russian fashion designer Ulyana Sergeenko walked by. I was lucky enough to photograph her while she was turning her head perfectly for the photo.
It’s couture week in Paris. Fashion lovers are running around Paris to see the latest collections of fashion designers from all over the world. Haute Couture is my favorite departure in fashion because of it’s artistic point of view. It is all hand made by real craftsman.
Sakina Paris presented her new Haute Couture collection ‘Le Cygne Noir‘ this evening at The Westin hotel. It’s an black swan inspired collection.

When I visited the new boutique of Buly 1803 (see my blogpost about the Parfume House here) in Paris, I discovered this amazing flower boutique. Buly 1803 concept store opened their doors in the 3e arrondissement of Paris in collaboration with other small brands, like Une Maison Dans Les Arbres. The flowers are from Japan, and dried in a special way. The flowers are in great conditions and are very strong. I see them as a timeless gift which contains the exotic flowers of Japan. Also great as your wedding bouquet; the flowers will last for ever.
