Paris Prêt à Porter Automne-Hiver 2011-2012 Review by Damien Neva

Before I can truly call full time on the F/W 11 show season I must first push this Paris review out the door. New York Fashion Week felt like a lark after the way Milano Moda Donna made me (not to mention the models!) feel. There is something about cramming all those Milano shows into what are essentially four days rather than the six on the calendar that is downright brutal. Paris is an entirely different animal and accordingly spreads the shows over a leisurely eight days, which allowed Sigrid Agren (25) and Karmen Pedaru (21) to break that all important twenty show benchmark. For two models who didn’t even walk in London they featured in sixty-four (64) and fifty-three (53) shows respectively.

Alana Zimmer featured in seventeen (17) shows in Paris and a total fifty-seven (57) for the season once her eight (8) London shows are added including two openings for Jaeger London and Nicole Fahri. Julia Saner featured in sixteen (16) shows in Paris, forty-eight (48) overall, and in the French capital opened Paul & Joe, and closed another in Christian Dior where she supplied arguably one of the most enduring images of the season by blowing a kiss to the audience. Hanne Gaby Odiele featured in fourteen (14) Paris shows, of which she opened Cacharel and closed Akris to bring her season total to forty-seven (47). Daiane Conterato featured in twelve (12) Paris shows and thirty-six (36) overall, where during the final week she also opened Haider Ackermann and opened and closed Ann Demeulemeester.

All told Paris proved to be an incredible eight days as did the entire show season for our girls. I now invite you to geek out on the below show lists. As ever any errors, omissions, mistakes are strictly my own and will be corrected if brought to my attention in the below comments section. Au revoir, Paris, see you in another six months.
