Paris Fashion Week: Day 2

Hello All, 

Fitsonme is in Paris and trying to bring it with the fashion. I was nervous I wasn’t going to get into any shows. Luckily, I ended up getting into two fashion show and it was amazing. Now for the rest of the week I have presentations. I learned that you have to start somewhere. It’s not easy getting into the fashion shows in Paris, I emailed almost  25-30 shows. And only received 2 invites, if your starting out going to fashion week abroad. You have to be patient it takes time to build your repoar with the public relations agency. 

Some tips:
1. Post content immediately-If you do get content from the fashion shows post your content immediately. The brands want to see their collection being promoted. 

2. Hashtag and Tags- use the brands and hashtag. The brands needs to see which attendees are posting about their brand.  

3. Be patient- if a brand doesn’t know you. Make them know you this gives you reliability and presence. Because your the new kid on the block and it’s your first day. So put your name out there! 

4. Build relationships- I learned that most individuals in the fashion industry are trying to do the same thing as you. So work together to help one another build their brand. As your trying to build your brand too. 

5. Have fun- if you don’t get into shows explore invites with showrooms and presentation. There’s so many opportunities in Paris that are awaiting you. So go out there and have fun! 

For me, I have what it takes. I know that I can make it in Paris it will take sometime. I’m willing to put in the work. 

As for my look, I got this 3-piece outfit from New York & company from Eva Mendes line. I’m in love with this look. It’s super comfortable and works well with my body type. I really lucked out I got this 3-piece look for only $50 what a steal! Check out more looks during my week of Paris Fashion Week!

NYFW has been fun! I wasn’t going to go this season. I couldn’t miss the action! I met up with new friends and hanged out with old friends. It was super exciting to go NYFW it’s compared to going to the first day of school, but I’m not the new kid on the block. I was supposed to go NYFW with my friend wasn’t able to go…I went sole this time! Which is super tough not finding someone to take your photos. lol

 Luckily, I found other bloggers that stood around taking a selfie picture. That’s what can spark up a conversation. We saw her struggling taking her own photo, we asked, “hey you want us to take your photo?”.  You know what that’s totally how you end up networking with other bloggers. When I first started blogging, I was a real introvert but I’ve ended up getting out my shell. It takes a confident person not to care about what people think. Going to fashion week has given me that confidence not to really care about other peoples opinions. Cause why do we care about other people’s opinion. It’s really are human nature to take care.

Let’s talk about fashion. The fashion was through the roof. With a mix of everything on the runway there was a little something for everyone this season. From those who want sophistication, suits, flowy dresses, and silk—from colorful coats to good night out look. And for those who prefer something a bit more subtle, there were different types of jackets which are the classic winter essentials. 
In fashion, what’s so interesting that everyone is trying to do the same thing..wearing the coolest outfit and trying to get into the hippest fashion shows. Honestly, it’s so worth it to go these shows gives you the best insight to put together that next outfit. Check out my look, How do you think I styled this look?
