…And that was that, folks. Paris Fashion Week is only a couple days behind us, but we’re already thinking about it like a dream. Can you blame us? With fantastical creations, otherworldly sets, and personalities that seemed to have been sprung from fairy tales (not to mention, champagne and fatigue-induced delusions from whirlwind days), Paris Fashion Week never quite feels like real life. Photographer Nina Westervelt was there to capture the spirit of the week, and catch the phantoms and figments for all of us to see. Enjoy!
