Strike a Pose

Yesterday was slathered with glamor. Thanks to a Paris blogger buddy Maurelita I was able to peek into the fashion show scene. A Finnish brand IvanaHelsinki staged their Spring-Summer 2009 show in a concert hall turned fashion showcase under the Alexandre III Bridge. I got to meet Maurelita for the first time. She was just as bubbly and lively-spirited as I had imagined her. It’s interesting how blogging can weave some pretty sturdy links. The show was very coherent, laying out the brand and its Scandinavian designs, brightly-colored and geometric.


Here, enjoy the spectacle. Fashion directly from Helsinki.


Buzzing atmosphere. I loved checking out people’s faces. Along with the artifacts. Fashion is a serious thing. You know folks.


IvanaHelsinki prints.


Even the singer Dani Siciliano was clothed with the creations.


I also met some other charming ladies. Looks like we’ll get together another time in the future. Touching base with other expats is always a welcome event. Actually the social side, the real life behind it and us all, is what really matters. At least I adore.

  1. Kommentoin jo Mauretlitallekin, että näytätte kovin VIPeiltä siinä punaisella matolla! You go, girls! 🙂 Upeeta, että saitte olla noin hienossa suomalais-in-tapahtumassa mukana! Kyllä kandee asua Pariisissa! 🙂

    Hali siulle, Susu ja toivottavasti voit jo paremmin! 🙂

  2. Kitty – It was a great event. Thanks for the compliment Kitty!

    Pupuce – Kiitos! Tilaisuus oli tosi kiva paasta kokemaan. Ja muiden suomalaismimmien tapaaminen oli hauskaa. Oloni on jo parempi.

  3. Wow your pix came out much better than mine – and I was grinning when I saw you also got a snapshot of Dani’s swinging tiger shoes.

    Oli todella upeeta tavata, uusitaan sitten lokakuussa suomalaisraflassa !


  4. Maurelita – Thanks again for the invitation:) It was a blast. I also smiled when I saw that the singer’s shoes had equally drawn your attention.

    Joops, pian taas uudestaan!
