As I traveled around to the shows I realized that there were almost more photographers outside the show than there were inside. Most of the outside photographers seemed to be bloggers and street style snappers. Sometimes I would see them on the inside, but most of the time they stayed outside spending their time capturing what was being worn off of the catwalk.
I also noticed that outside the shows there were people that had no purpose there other than to try and get photographed. It was a strange but interesting phenomenon to check out. These participants would just “walk about” outside in between photographers posing every couple of minutes and waiting for people to capture them. I imagined that most of them were art students, aspiring stylists, up and coming bloggers, etc.
At some of the bigger shows such as Lanvin and Balmain, a paparazzi scene would unfold when certain editors or stylista’s would walk through. I realized that this is why the shows never start on time ( they are always at least 30-45 minutes late). It’s all the photographers outside holding up the guests which in turn delays the whole thing. I found this all very intriguing to watch.
Below are some pictures of bloggers/wannabes/artists which all have a bit more of a street style about them compared to some of the pictures I have shown before.
