Presenting at Paris Fashion week last week was a career milestone and dream since my early days at La Sorbonne. When I found out I had been selected to show at Premiere Classe - the world's most prestigious accessories show - I could not have been more excited.
My mom, Sophie from my team, and I spent the week in one of my favorite cities of all time working and taking in the delights of Paris. We had a magical stay at Le Meurice where we felt like it was a home away from home with incredible service and old world glamour.
The amalgamation of creativity, people and fashion in one place was quite something. We saw polished, sophisticated tailoring on the runways, cross bodies ( like my Leowe purse pictured above) and hearts and star inspired jewelry emerged as a trend from Balenciaga to the streets to ASHA.
Here are some of favorite photos and places from the week. xx Ashley
