I returned late last night from my mini trip to Paris for the White Swan Runway Show from the contest organised by Carnet de Mode with Madame Figaro. It was held at Les Coulisses du Mariage wedding exhibition and featured my Panthera Leo white collar as a contemporary piece of wedding jewellery.
Literally meaning something along the lines of "Behind the Scenes of Marriage" the event was held in the beautiful mansion La Maison des Polytechniciens (read it's history here).
As my work was already done I could just sit and wait for the show, so backstage I kept myself busy taking photographs to share the event. So here is my post from behind the scenes of the fashion show.
