Paris vs New York, Which City Would You Chose?

Our October catalog was shot in both Paris and in a studio in New York. Paris has that romance, the elegance and a certain feeling that I admire so much. When I think of Paris I think of reading books in coffee shops, sitting outside a French restaurant in a big coat in the cold air, watching the elegant people in black and stripes stroll pass me.

Paris Fashion Week from Be Frassy

Highlight of PFW so far has got to be the Sonia Rykiel (she is one of my all time favourite designers) . The clothes, the music and Sonia herself sitting front row (she stepped down from the brand, leaving it to her adorable daughter) made the show quite a performance. I’ve been busy shooting street-style for various projects keeping warm in a multitude of layers. Hit my favourite Paris bar, Le Pompom, where the Cobrasnake was going crazy on the DJ Decks. In a total un-fashion week spirit,  I’ve been eating alot – using the fact that so many of my friends are in town as an excuse to dine at all my favourite restaurants. Tonight we are heading to the “This is New York” party at Le Regine, I’ll be wearing a lilac wig and some sort of velvet LBD. Read More

We love Paris Couture!

Whenever Paris Couture starts running I get giddy over fashion and the excitement of fashion weeks starts running through me. Paris Couture is what fashion dreams are made of, a traditional love and lure for craftsmanship and fine details, it’s fashion design at its very best and you can’t help but show true respect for it. The level of workmanship from the ateliers is especially inspiring. From Karl Lagerfeld’s tribute to shades of blue for Chanel, Valentino’s key to the eighteenth century’s Age of Enlightenment and “real” values to Elie Saab’s easy to digest rainbow of shiny, beautiful pink, peach, yellow, mint green and baby blue gowns.

Paris Couture shows true love to fashion “Fashion needs culture or it becomes empty” said Pier Paolo Piccioli and that’s so true. Now I’m looking forward to the ready to wear shows to begin 9 days and counting!

Masquerade! Holiday Party Photos

Our holiday party last night was so much fun! To create the atmosphere of a masquerade ball, Building 543 was transformed with magical lights, bartenders who served champagne while hanging upside down, a ceiling of silver balloons, face-painting stations and touches of Parisian mystique throughout.

FP party dresses! The Fancy Fringe Dress, New Romantics Tailored Dress, Priscilla Metallic Dress.
