Express Yourself – Paris Fashion Week SS19

By on 08/10/2018



Just a single Paris Fashion Week but worth writing a book about it!


I can’t believe it finished last week – emotions, impressions and inspirations are still with me.

It’s been a true spectacle of creativity – both on catwalks and sidewalks of Paris.

What it taught me?


Self confidence is the shiniest of fashion accessories!

You can literally put on anything you  find on your bedroom floor (ok, maybe it’s an exaggeration) and march in front of photographers. If you enter as you own the place – you’ll get everybody’s attention and maybe – MAYBE – will be the next trendsetter. It’s like in art – artist just gives themself a freedom of composing out of their head. You can compose the true expression of who you are. #PFW street style shows it.


Saying that – don’t get too hyped when bunches of photographers hunt you – it can equally mean nothing and you won’t find your face or outfit on style-oriented websites. But I can assure you – it’s a thrill, so live the moment and enjoy this recognition – even if it promisses nothing. Everybody want to feel special from time to time and this is that moment.



Fashion faux-pas (or the opposite)


Forget what you’ve been taught about dress code and savoir-vivre. During Paris Fashion Week there are no rules. Express your mood, emotions, a taste for a certain designer or esthetics and go for it – it’s really hard to be overdressed here!


Check out some picks of the real life “no-no’s” and get inspired!

Sandals and socks (yeah, Prada introduced them few years ago, but it’s still uncommon to see such combination on the streets)

It’s just a beginning of my Paris Fashion Week summaries. In the next post I’m going to reveal some tricks how to crash into major fashion shows WITHOUT invitation. Stay tuned!




I'm Bogusia - founder of ShopTrotter and Age_Concept Blog I kind of like fashion - meaning: I like to look good, but spending too much time shopping is something that makes me feel overwhelmed. Besides of that - I have a walk-in closet full of wonderful stuff that I use once in 1-2 years... I know, it's outreagous! So I decided to start the Instagram account and try to reuse pieces I own for a long time, without compromising on fashion and style. My new motto is to re-create and re-cycle, instead of buying new stuff over and over. Now I shop consciously - buying only the items that complement my other clothes.
