Paris Couture Fashion Week AW 2012/13...Mia

Lovely Mia Marionette from No Strings Attached blog, before Jean Paul Gaultier, Paris July 2012.

Mia and I were reminiscing in Paris about the first time we met/I photographed her.....I think it was my very first Paris Fashion Week. It is always so lovely to meet up with everyone during each fashion month - I think we all describe it as being very much like the first day back at school: we are excited, slightly nervous (okay, maybe that is only me!), curious about what everyone has been up to over the summer/winter. We laugh together, whinge together "how many bl**dy miles do we have to walk between lines at Ch√Ętelet"*, photograph together and sometimes even have a little cry together (mostly not photography related!). I wonder if it is the same for the backstage photographers, the catwalk photographers, the make-up artists, the editors and buyers.....

Recreate Mia's Look (kind of):

Try: Zadig & Voltaire broderie skirt, ASOS peplum skirt in broderie anglaise, Preen Tilly skirt or this pretty Milly eyelet dress

Splendid layers tank , Victoria Beckham Denim tank or ASOS scoop tank (in white)

French Connection flat sandals or K. Jacques Gina flat sandals

* most of us avoid Ch√Ętelet unless absolutely necessary!


  1. I love the simplicity of this look. Flat sandals and pencil skirt - perfect.

  2. @Lauren - and a wee bit of inspiration from Louis Vuitton :)

  3. lovely dress!
