Paris Haute Couture 2017 the video of my experience
Paris Haute Couture 2017 was definitely on my wish list. Every morning, when I woke, I would stop to contemplate the logos of the brands whose shows I would go to: Dior, Chanel, Ulyana Sergeenko, Valentino, Elie Saab, Fendi, Giorgio Armani that together with the photos of Paris were all aligned on my goal wall to remind me where I wanted to get to.
I worked hard to get there but I did it. Not without tireless efforts: investment, sacrifice but also a lot of satisfaction and happiness.
I covered the whole Paris high fashion week for Grazia Arabia magazine with which I have been working for six months now.
The fashion shows I attended are:
Proenza Schouler, Maurizio Galante, Rodarte, Azzaro Couture, Schiaparelli, Giambattista Valli, Ralph&Russo, Dior, Alexandre Vauthier, Georges Hobeika, Iris Van Herpen, Chanel, Alexis Mabille, Stéphane Rolland, Giorgio Armani, Valentin, Zuhair Murad, Viktor & Rolf, Jean Paul Gaultier, Elie Saab, Maison Margiela, Franck Sorbier, Ulyana Sergeenko, Fendi
I couldn’t put all of them in the video but you will be able to see them all on Grazia Arabia IG account @graziaqatar
I would never have thought I could go Paris Haute Couture this year! It has been a particularly difficult year for me, full of changes and new challenges like my Instagram Marketing agency Instasamy that I opened just six months ago, the banner project I told you about in December, getting engaged to Matteo, the big job I am doing with Grazia Arabia (Qatar), my work as consultant for two multinationals and much more.
Let me say it again. I made it YE YE YE and this is just the beginning =)
How did my Paris Haute Couture start?
I left from Milan wearing gold satin Manolo, an antique pink trouser suit and a Hermes scarf with the longest list ever on my Iphone of things to do and goals, and I arrived in Paris in the late afternoon. I went to a restaurant for dinner and then straight to ER. Nothing to do with the food but unfortunately an annoying eye inflammation that passed almost immediately… I don’t remember exactly what happened: one thing is sure and that is that I drove Matteo crazy with desperation.
After visiting not one but two hospitals, one of which I am sure smelt of Chanel numero 5, we got back to the hotel at 4am with the wake up call set for 7!!!
We can say that the first two days of Paris Haute Couture 2017 were in line with Paris Haute Couture Autumn Winter season because the thermometer showed 10 degrees with pouring rain. At the Proenza Schouler show, their first year of show in Paris, my hands were shaking so much from the cold that I could hardly hold up the phone to film the end of the show. In the following days the weather changed: we went from 10 degrees to 30/35. Luckily because I didn’t have any winter outfits with me.
But I didn’t just go to the high fashion shows: I also covered presentations of Haute Joaillerie by Boucheron, Louis Vuitton and I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of wearing clothes by my favourite brands like Missoni, Paule Ka, Max Mara, Blumarine, Mulberry, Prada and many others.

I think the video I made with Instagram Instastories shows a lot of what I did and saw.
